Not again! Foreign teacher gets jail term for harassment

with 4 comments

From the Korea Times.

Of course this happens in Korean society on a daily basis but when it’s a foreigner, it sticks out a lot more and makes all foreigners look bad.  This, not long after the Daegu incident.  They just changed the E-2 regulations to supposedly deter these sickos (which everyone knows is just more BS and paperwork).  Wonder what they’ll come up with now.  AES must be having a field day.

First of all, my apologies to my loyal readers (all ten of you!) for my lack of posts but it’s been crazy busy as of late.

Over the last few weeks I have been trying to find a recruiter that fits me, so far I have not had any luck. It is not that they can’t find me a job that would be frustrating but understandable, it is that at this point they aren’t even responding. I don’t really know what to do. Every day I don’t hear from someone I get more frustrated. Do you have any advice or is there some reason that recruiters seem completely uninterested in me?

Right now schools are picky; ample amount of resumes to choose from.  In all honesty though, it could be all about appearance.  Best advice is to get a professional-looking photo and video (which is all the craze these days).  Also, if you’re not picky about location, it will definitely help your cause as well and make yourself as un-undesirable as possible.  Send your resumes to as many recruiters as possible (commit recruiter polygamy!).  Also, don’t only rely on recruiters.  You should also be able to find job advertisements posted directly by companies; apply directly when possible to avoid the middleman.

It’s very competitive right now so you have to sell yourself.  Follow these tips and be vigilant.  You’ll eventually find a position so be patient!
