Cover Letter Guidelines and Samples
Foreign companies in Korea require cover letters. While traditionally not a requirement by Korean companies, many larger companies now expect one. The cover letter may help hiring managers evaluate your character, your fitness for the position and how you would fit in with the corporate culture.
Résumé / CV Guidelines and Samples
Your résumé should be broken down into four main categories: personal data, education, work experience and personal information.
List all work experience in reverse chronological order, beginning with the most recent. For each job, give the employment start and end dates with year and month, the job title and the company name.
You'll find more advice and cover letter and resume samples in the complete South Korea Guide.
