These ones from Dain:
"I've been teaching in Korea for 2 years at hagwons but now I'm looking to get a university job for March. I know that its difficult to get one, especially since I don't have a masters degree and I don't have any friends who work at a university. I am currently working on an online TEFL certificate and I do have an F4 visa. I was wondering if there is anything else I could do to make me a more competitive candidate for a university job? I also was wondering what is the best job board to find posted university jobs. I know of worknplay and eslcafe, but I haven't seen a lot of uni jobs posted there."
Let me address your questions in a few parts:
1. If you don't have a Masters Degree, it is very difficult to get a uni job in Korea. Not impossible, just very difficult. If you want to make yourself more competitive, don't waste your time with on online TEFL certificate, which isn't worth the paper it's printed on, but get a Masters degree in a TESL/Education related field, or do the Celta Course.
2. You've been here for 2 years, but don't know anyone working at a uni? If you knew this was your plan, you should have been networking for the past 2 years at places like Kotesol.
3. An F4 visa means that you're of Korean descent, but grew up elsewhere. Can you speak fluent Korean? If yes, this is a positive for you and I've actually seen some uni ads that request this. If no, being Korean-American or whatever is actually a strike against you since most places prefer the "whitey." This will make it more difficult for you to get a uni job, even if you do have a masters degree.
4. Maybe it's a matter of perspective, but I actually think there are a lot of uni jobs on ESL Cafe. In prime hiring seasons, there are like 4 or 5 ads a day! Now, prime-time is finished and that's why there isn't that many.
To sum it up, I'd be very surprised if you were able to find a uni position for March. Most unis have already done their hiring and you really have nothing going for you that will distinguish you from any other candidate out there. For example, my uni (way out in the countryside) hired everyone in December already. They got over a hundred applications for just a few positions. They didn't even look at people without a Masters Degree, but just threw them in the trash. I think a lot of unis are the same. And my uni isn't even considered one of the "prime" jobs that the top candidates would want.
