The following was extracted from a recent interview with me about how to find a job in Korea. Visit Korea Business Central for more information on getting a job in Korea, including the full video of this interview.
“Now tell me: how can Korea Business Central help me find a job in Korea?”
“If you’re looking for a job in Korea, then membership on Korea Business Central is really a must. It’s free, too!
We’ve dedicated an entire section of the website to resources that help you in your job search, including interviews, videos, discussions and others. We’ve also developed our own member job search database, which is free to members, and job recruiters on KBC offer their advice to members in the job market. You can even download a free template for a resume that is matched to the Korean approach for getting a job, and learn about how the visa system work and how you can take advantage of it.
You’ll also find extra resources just for internships!
I’ll also point out that networking can be a key factor in facilitating your job search (it was for me!) and on Korea Business Central, we have hosted business networking events and we link to upcoming offline events to help you get connected quickly while you’re here.
I’ll also point out that since there are more applicants for many jobs in Korea than there are positions available, it is imperative that you find a way to distinguish yourself from the crowd. One way to do that is to become a Certified Korea Business Professional through the KBC Professional Certification Program. This small investment will pay off not only in terms of your job search, but will also make you more effective in your new position.”
