Working at a Korean university is one of the best English teaching jobs in the world. Many of them have 5 months paid vacation, 9-12 teaching hours per week, decent students and hands-off administration. Even the jobs that are not so prime are still better than almost anything else in the world of ESL teaching abroad.
Of course, these jobs are not that easy to come by since they’re so prime and so you’ll need to do everything you can to get a leg up on the competition. By far the best place to start is this book:
How to Get a University Job in South Korea: The English Teaching Job of Your Dreams is available on Amazon.
Some of the information is out there on the Internet in various places but if you want to save hours (days?) of time and get it all in one place, this is the book you need. It’s the only comprehensive guide available that will help you get the uni job in Korea that you want. Hours of your valuable time for less than the price of a Starbucks coffee here in Korea! It is worth it? I know it would be to me!
