Sharon (From Tefl-Tips):
A must-read for anyone looking for a uni gig in Korea
I’ve been following Jackie’s blogs (My Life! Teaching in a Korean University and Freedom Through Passive Income) for a while now. She really knows her stuff and this book is no exception. She lays out the info in easy to read form. You can read it straight through or just skip to the parts that you need to read. She gives you the basics about teaching at a university in Korea and gives you lots of tips, such as common mistakes people make at a demo lesson and an interview. I think her info is invaluable and I’d highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to get a university job in Korea or even those people who currently have a university job and would like to get another one.
Having met the author at a conference, she seems very personable and eager to help. This comes through in her book. Having been working on gaining a full-time university job after five years teaching elementary school students in Korea, it confirmed decisions I was making, help me question some in relation to time-management (why do I so much so much time on X, when doing Y would likely be more valuable), and gave additional ideas and information about other a few resources I did not know about. Fantastic book from an author who seems like a great person (though admittedly I have only met her only once).
This book is a great way to get background and resources to start on a university job search. It details what to do and what to avoid and assists with the entire process from start to finish. Definitely recommend to anyone serious about teaching at the university level in Korea.
Chalk Full of Information
