Hey guys. You may or may not know that I'm considering going to teach English in Korea. As a qualified teacher, I'm hoping I'll be fine when it comes to getting a job, etc...
However, I do have a husband. LOL. Obviously, he'd come with me. But he has no interest in teaching people English, and although we haven't made any solid decisions yet (heck, I haven't even sat down and talked to him yet!), I'm a bit worried about what he'd do for work if we did decide to go.
Some info about him: He is currently working as a software engineer (that is NOT the same as working in IT). He's been in his current job for just over 3 years now. Before that, he got a PhD in computing and had quite a full on career in research while he went through his uni life. Although he's very open to my learning Korean and such, he doesn't really know a single word in Korean and doesn't have much interest in dilligently learning. Unless he picked stuff up naturally, he's just not someone who's going to learn another language, as his memory kinda sucks. LOL.
He does, however, have huge interests in computing (obviously), technology and... anything gadget-y. (NERD PLUS!) He loves computer/video games, but wants to remain working in computing.
Does anyone have any advice as to how he might go about finding work? Surely there must be some work in Korea for someone like him? Are there any websites you'd recommend for him finding a job before we go there? What about the language barrier? Can foreigners still work in his sort of area/s without knowing Korean?
We haven't made any solid decisions yet, but I just thought I'd ask, because if we do decide to go, his finding a job is something that would worry me...
Thanks to anyone who has ANY advice!
