So I've finally got all of my documents ready (aside from transcripts - i'm not doing those) and two days ago I started applying for work. I went to Dave's ESL and picked out over 20 recruitment agencies, then applied to all of them.
So far i've had a few e-mails, two phone calls and an 'interview' which lasted 5 minutes just asking me what i'm looking for. I find it strange that EVERY recruiter keeps asking me the same questions, despite having answered them when initially entering their respective forms (also I answered some of them in my covering letter) and one of the recruiters even rang me to ask he same questions, that i'd already answered twice before.
Anyway, whenever I mention Busan then all seem to say they either have no work there, or it's hard to get and ask whether I would consider other areas. I can't really consider other areas, because my partner (who's also about to apply, but NOT as a couple) really wants to be in Busan for the ferry's to Japan/Jeju in our limited holiday time, besides Busan does look amazing.
I thought Busan was supposed to be the second largest city. I mean yes it will be popular, but then it has to be because there are more people there and presumably more work. Seoul is also popular yet there seem to be many jobs there.
I'm hoping my partner won't have trouble finding work, because she's female and attractive, but i'm a little worried about myself. Am I unlucky or just too ambitious?
It's been only a couple of days, so I'll wait and see.
