a friend wanting to come to korea to teach
« on: October 26, 2015, 07:51:43 pm »
I have a friend who is trying to come to Korea and teach english.  The thing is he doesnt have a degree in English but an associates in Liberal Arts ( not from a prestigious school).  Hes wondering (as am i ) what his chances are of finding a good job.

Zero. We don't have associates degrees where I'm from but i understand they are 2 year degrees. You can't get an E2 with that.
He could work at some shitbag hagwon illegally but the likelihood of that being a "good job" is also zero.

Even if he worked illegally he would have to leave the country every 3 months on a tourist visa. Talk is being phased out but used to be an option for those with AA degrees who are willing to work in very rural schools for low pay. Not sure if they are hiring for 2016 but he can try.

Ah, another cashclay troll thread!

Just in case you are posting in earnest, for once...no, of course not. Since TaLK is shutting down in January, it's impossible. (And I would be VERY cautious of any hagwon that accepts a teacher with only two years of university.)
