Pre-Interview Preparation

Korea is an exceptional country when it comes to the hiring process. While in the West, the application form is only the start of the hiring process, in Korea it is essentially the most important document an applicant submits to the company.

Interview Conduct

To show confidence during the interview, one should speak in a quiet, steady voice and avoid hand gestures. As always, applicants should appear to be modest, but not necessarily humble.

The Interview

Koreans do not change jobs frequently, so recruiting a new employee is a carefully thought out decision for the company. For this reason, there is usually at least one other person present during the interview in addition to the interviewer.

Post Interview

Most of the large companies in Korea have a set timeline indicating when the application results will be made public. At the specific time and date, the results will be posted on the company’s website for each individual to check the status of his or her application.

This is just a short sample of what you’ll find in over 100 pages of information in the complete South Korea Guide.
