Lots of people approach me in person and also send me questions via this blog about how they can get a uni job. My first answer is usually that networking is the most important thing and that they actually need to meet uni teachers. I suggest joining a local chapter of Kotesol, such as the one in Busan that I'm a part of (we're having a meeting this Saturday, btw) because chances are, you'll meet teachers from 5+ unis in the area. And don't just show up, but actively get involved and meet people and make personal connections.
And for the people in person that I suggest this to, I've almost never seen them at any of the meetings. And I go to 95% of them. I guess life gets in the way and they're busy, which I get, but then it makes me think that that person is not really serious about getting a uni job and I will most definitely NOT go the extra mile to help them in any way further!
Anyway, just a little rant to start off the morning. And, I hope to see you at the meeting this Saturday if you're in the area.
