- 40% of people chose ‘Other’ but they did not leave a comment as to what other profession they would like to be in so I really can’t comment on it, sorry.
- Surprisingly teaching came last at 10% which is weird because people seem to think nearly every foreigner that works in Korea is a teacher yet these results show that teaching is the least wanted job. There’s lots of websites and support available online to those who want to teach in Korea such as http://www.teacheslkorea.com/, http://www.epik.go.kr/index.do, http://www.teach-english-korea.com/
As the results show people mostly wanted to be in the media or in business. However when you search these online you get nothing useful back. I think it would be really great if someone working in these industries in Korea wrote about it and how they managed to do it, whether it be by being transferred from their home country to Korea or if they went to Korea and searched for jobs or found an agency that searched for jobs for them. I think the first starting point is getting a university degree and learning Korean. I think you’d have a better chance at competing with other Korean people for a job if you know Korean really well. It would also help outside of work too if you ever did manage to get a job in Korea.
I found the perfect site for those wanting to look for the different types of jobs you can get in Korea apart from teaching: http://www.linkedin.com/job/l-korea-jobs
LinkedIn in a website where you can make good business connections and it’s legitimate.
