Public Schools Jobs in Korea
According to Gusts of Popular Feeling, Chungcheongbuk-Do (province) is reversing the trend of Gyeonggi, Seoul, and Busan by planning to increase Native Speakers in their schools. And this chart about where Native Speakers are working in Korea is also quite interesting. Per student, there are generally more native speakers in the countryside than in the big cities. At the top of the list are rural provinces Chungnam, Gangwon, and Gyeongbuk. Towards the bottom are big cities Daegu, Gwangju, Daejeon, and Incheon. So, what this means is that in the next few years, it will be increasingly difficult to get a public school job in the big city, but if you want to work out in the countryside, it should be no problem.
