[eDebate] Job Opportunity in Seoul Korea
Wed Oct 31 08:59:13 CDT 2007
Hello Debate Community,
I am currently working in Seoul, South Korea as a debate teacher. Debate has really exploded in South Korea over the last five years as it is considered to be a powerful English language learning tool. I work for one of a few private debate academies in Seoul that offers after school training in Asian style parliamentary debate to middle and high school students. We are looking to hire another North American teacher to work at our academy.
Job responsibilities include teaching debate as well as essay writing classes. There is also additional (but not much) work that needs to be done related to general English language training. The classes are fun and the students are very hardworking. The working hours are typically from 2pm to 10pm 5 days a week and there are opportunities to work more for overtime pay. There are two weeks of vacation per year. We want to find someone who can start near the beginning of January.
Applicants must have substantial debate experience and at least a bachelor's degree. Teaching experience is also preferred.
The salary is negotiable and dependent on experience. I would say, with a bachelor's degree, the pay will likely be at least 3 Million Won per month (3,300$). Ofcoruse applicants with a Master's degree, significant debate credentials, and other relevant experiences can negotiate for more. Standard contracts also include a bonus of one month's pay after completing a year-long contract. There is a little less than 10% deducted from your pay for income taxes, half of which is repayed to you upon completion of your contract. We also pay airfare to and from South Korea and provide furnished studio/apartments for all teachers in addition to salary. The medical insurance is also better than anything you are likely to get in the U.S. I will provide more information upon request.
I have been here for one month and am having a great time. Korea has great food, great nightlife, great public transportation, and much more.
If you have any questions feel free to hit me up. If you are interested please email your CV with cover letter to petersod at uci.edu.
