"I'm over in the U.S. I have a MA in TESOL, have been teaching 3 years college level, and previous to my States experience 5 years in Bangkok.
have the travel itch again...but am a divorced mama with a 6 year old
daughter. Any chance you know of similar experiences to this at UNI
level in Korea?
If it were just me, I could pick up some bags and go... are there any hiring fairs for Universities in the U.S.?"
My answer: unfortunately, it's extremely difficult to get hired at a Korean University from overseas since there are so many people in Korea with the proper qualifications available for in-person interviews. University Jobs in Korea are not like international school jobs that hold hiring fairs in the US; they simply advertise and then interview locally.
If you want to persevere and try your luck, check out this book which contains the basic information about finding a uni job in Korea, as well as a specific section about what to do if you are overseas.
