Hi Guys,

I have a few questions hopefully someone can answer them seriously without being too sarcastic and pessimistic. How is the EFL/ESL job industry in South Korea for 2019? I haven't been back in the country for a few years. It seems to have gone downwards than upwards. Is it pretty difficult for Non-Whites and Non-Gyopos to get hired?. And I am wondering if it is a good idea to be in the country to look for a job versus looking for one outside of Korea, has anyone been successful with this and what did you do?. Lastly, let me know if you know a place that needs to find a teacher or replacement starting July 2019-September 2019 (prefer teaching middle school-high school/adult students and a school not so obsessive with race, gender, or discrimination). Thanks!

  I have had the experience of being in Korea and completing a contract but finding it took a while to get a new job. I also had the experience of completing contracts and starting a new job with a gap of one day between contracts. So it can go either way. It might be a bit easier if you go to Korea looking for work. August might be a good time. There are some Facebook pages dedicated to foreigners looking for work in Korea. I joined them, and they said they could really help, but only if I was in Korea with a mobile phone. Some employers will accept you.
