I am a 49 year old American with a B.A. I have no TEFL certificates.
I have 2 years of ESL experience in Austria, Greece, Spain and Taiwan. I have years of audit, accounting, tax, and hotel experience.
I am interested in teaching English in Korea. I think Busan would be a more desirable place than Seoul. I want to teach adults or corporate learners.
Two years ago in 2008 I applied to some recruiters listed on sites like Dave's ESL Cafe. In response I was told a 47 year old cannot get a job in Korea, certainly not in Busan, perhaps a remote chance in Seoul. I was informed teachers must be under 35. I was also told 99% of jobs in Korea are for teaching small children, not adults, which I prefer. Is this all true?
Is there a place for me in Busan, or even Seoul, though Seoul would be far less desirable? Thank you.
