Recruiter In Korea

The Honest Truth About Recruiting in Korea

Worker with 10 years of experience gets W52 mil.

with one comment

Korean company employees start off pretty low but after 10 years make over 50 million KRW in annual salary.  Reading about Korean salaries definitely puts things into perspective.  A lot of foreigners in their 20s and 30s make over 50 million regardless of their line of work and we all know that working at a company in Korea isn’t always as good as it may seem.

Those in the finance industry however, aren’t seeing much increase:

However, the survey result is not applicable to all workplaces. A worker with 10 years experience at a foreign lender said that she didn’t see any increase with wages frozen this year.

“It doesn’t affect me. Normally bank employees have frozen salaries,” a female worker, who leads a four-member team at the lender, said on condition of anonymity. “I really want to see my salary go up next year.”
