Wages are going up for laborers ... but not for native English teachers.

the best job i had recently was "acting" in an educational video. i got paid 50k an hour, but mostly sat around talking to the other kids in the video for most of the time as i wasn't needed "on set" for the majority of the time. probably did about 2 hours "work" maximum. and got a free dinner after. got paid for 10 hours though

How does one get that job? F visa + MATESOL + CELTA/DELTA + substantial experience teaching adults?

The minimum requirements are pretty low - CELTA + adult teaching exp but in practice it's pretty competitive.

Talking about examining but the point's still valid.  The easiest route in was China where they were recruiting full time examiners like mad before the virus.

Is the pay much different in Korea vs. China?

I heard doing IELTS work is very boring, "soul destroying" is what I heard ... but everyone's different; maybe some people like it.

Being a DJ would be a fun job; I've thought about getting into it. Not easy to get gigs though; super competitive. And looks and youth are desired, unfortunately.

No, never heard that being a requirement, or even desirable, although it'd probably help with the training.

I've never heard anyone say they like it. At best it's dull, but stress free and you can occasionally have an interesting chat with a higher level candidate. At worst it could be soul destroying if you were doing it full time in a place like China where all the candidates are around the same lowish level and all regurgitate the same stock phrases they learned at their IELTS academy. 

I'd personally find standing up all night surrounded by drunk people, having Rap or Hip Hop music blaring at me for hours on end a lot worse,  but as you say everyone's different.

Hmm. Interesting. I always enjoyed teaching IELTS and would have definitely got into the examiner game if I could have stayed in Australia. The ielts examiners I knew seemed to like doing it

Maybe they and you were new to it? I was told it becomes tiresome over time (after about a month). How long did you / they do IELTS examining for?

Yep, it definitely gets old fast.  Speaking as a 15 year vet.
