Korean University Job Without a Masters Degree

Korean University
University Jobs Korea
One of the most common questions that I get in person and online is how someone with only a BA can get a university job in South Korea. My answer is that these days, it is quite difficult but as with anything, it is about being in the right place at the right time and knowing the right people.  Many of my friends are working at universities here in Busan and they do not have Masters degrees.

Here is any example of a Korean university job offer that just came out that doesn't require a Masters degree and which is an excellent opportunity to get your foot in the door to get that all important few years of university experience. Once you have that experience, you can move up in the world into bigger and better positions. But, this job is definitely a prime one with the low teaching hours and excellent vacation.

I found the information in one of the Facebook groups I'm a member of:

Daegu Catholic University requires English teachers ASAP
No MA required, only BA + 4 years of teaching experience (Hagawon, university, public school, etc)
28 million/year + housing
5 months paid vacation
12 hours/week, spread out over 4 days.
