finding a job

Question from a reader: reliable recruiters?

UPDATED and ADDED 27 October 2010: Recruiters mentioned in the comments have been added to the list - readers, do your own due diligence, but having multiple, unsolicited, unpaid, positive recommendations from fellow expats is about as good as you can get.

Question from a reader: university jobs, TOPIK tests, and TOEFL certifications

A reader writes in:
hi Chris,

i've been reading your blog for a few months now and I found it to be
pretty good...informative, attractive, well-written, unoffensive...

and then i read a few more posts today, many of them back-dated. holy
sh[!]t! your blog is awesome! as a jeollanamdo person, i've been
sweating my a[$$] off thinking of life post-brian in jeollanamdo, but
i'm really glad to find many of the same wonderful features in your
blog (although you'll never win angriest blogger).

anyway, if you have time, I'd love to know your thoughts on a few topics:
1. university jobs - finding them and any other info.
2. TOPIK exam
3. TEFL/TESOL courses

If you don't get around to it, no worries. i'll still be reading your blog.

thanks for providing such a great resource.

Question from a reader: Filipino looking for work

A reader named G. writes in:

Dear Chris,
I would like to ask if there are jobs offerec to non-native English speakers. I'm a BSIT graduate and a Filipino. I'm currently in IT field and is planning to look for a job in South Korea. English teaching is one of my options but I'm worried I'm not qualified if I'm not a resident of the 7 countries.
Can you share with me some jobs that I can apply and some of the qualifications?
Can you share what type of visa can I have in order to work in South Korea?

Question from a reader: fly to Korea to find a job?

A reader we'll call 'I' writes in:

I have questions to ask you. I just completed a Celta and an internship in South Africa. I am tempted to get on a flight to Seoul and start looking for a job when I get there. I have a degree and all my stuff in order. the only issue I have is my Background check is 7 month old and that is causing issues with recruiter. Will I be able to get a gig pretty fast when I get there? Is this this too much of a risk? Thanks for your help.

A few questions to look at individually.
