Job opening for Filipinos in Korea

A Pinoy living in Geoje Island whom I met three years ago posted a job opening on his FB account. It is a job opening for Filipinos living in Korea. The company is Dongwon Group, a leading corporation in South Korea. They are famous for their canned tuna (just like Century is in the Philippines).
The basic job requirements include Philippine citizenship, a BA degree and good communication and interpersonal skills. It’s an office job so perhaps an online it degree or advanced degree wouldn’t hurt.

  1. hi po Ms.Betchay,
    i dont know if you still remember me.. ^^
    Im here in Korea na po for almost a month.
    i have a question regarding, how much po ba ang minimum salary for those Pinoy working in Korea? .. Im working po kc sa company ng inlaw (office work po yun) ko same din po ang work ko when Im still in Pinas.when i came here last month,..same lng po ang salary na binigay nya sa akin nun. i dont know po kng magkano po ang next month salary ko.. but she said she will increase my salary since im now working n Korea.. Sorry if im talking about money issues… .T.T gusto ko lng po kcng malaman if magkano ang kinikita mostly if office work.. unfair (i dont know if it’s the right word to say) din naman po kc if she will offer me lesser amount..
    I’m planning to teach english kso sabi ng hubby ko di pa daw pwede .i asked Ms.Cherylesabi nya there’s no restrictions coz Im holding work kc F2-1 visa. i dont have any teaching experience din… is it really necessary to have a teaching experince?! thanks po for your help.

    1. Hi Cha! The minimum hourly salary is 4,000 won (ata – the last time i heard). F2 visa holders can now teach English, unlike four years ago. Dati hindi talaga legal kahit na marami gumagawa. As for teaching experience, hindi naman kailangan pero nasa sa ‘yo na yun. I didn’t have any experience teaching the language before. In the Philippines, I worked as a computer instructor at a university in San Fernando and at a technical college in Mabalacat. Before I started teaching at a hagwon here, I enrolled at Sookmyung University’s TESOL course. It was quite expensive but Google paid for it ;p

      1. Hi Ms. Betchay, i’m jane, i’m 26, i got married last January 2011 and i just got here in Korea last month. now i’m looking for a job. would it be possible for me to get a job here in korea? do u know some job that i could apply for? i’m presently residing here in Gijang Busan. and about ur TESOL course is it free? how was it that google paid for it? hope to hear from u soon. thanks and God bless po!

      2. Hi Ms. Betchay,
        Nkita ko po sa post nyo parang taga-pampanga po kau. Taga dun din me, kaso andito po me now sa UAE working. Pero naiisip ko po and magwork sa korea. One time nag-try me apply tourist visa dito for korea nakakuha nman me po. Gusto ko sana malaman how makapag-apply ng work sa korea. Possible po ba online application and may recommended site po ba kau? Halos kasi nakita ko eh puro teaching eh wala po me experienced in teaching. What po pwede nyo iadvise sa akin. Thanks.

  2. Hi. I like surfing the internet. One time while surfing, I came upon reading your blog and I liked it. This is my first time to comment though. I’m currently working for an online video English company (owned by Koreans) here sa Pilipinas. Based on your comments, malaki pala ang natitipid nila for hiring Filipino teachers here.
    I’ve been working here for more than two years now. We have been hoping that they would raise our salary but it is not happening till now. Tsk. Tsk.

  3. hi po Ms. Betchay so sorry for the late reply..
    thanks po sa info.. til now same pa rin ang sweldo ko kahit dito na ako sa Korea.. i dont know kelan nya pa ako iincreasan.
    kinausap ko cla about sa pag aaply ko po ng pagiging ESL teacher dito sa Korea pro sabi nla mahirap daw magtrabho sa hagwon esp. i cant speak and understand Korean pa. hopefully, makapag aral na ako ng language nla. this time, work po muna ako sa knilang company.. ang layo po kc ng language center dito sa amin.
    did you study Koreanlanguage in the univeristy mam Betchay? or or free language class lng.. may alam po ba kayo na malapit dito sa Incheon na free korean class? nahihirapan n po kc ako intindihin ang mga ksama ko sa work.:-( tsak iba tlga kng may alam ako kahit kunti ng Korean para mkapag gala din.. im living with myinlaws po kaya medyo maingat po talaga ako sa pagkilos.. minsan i really feel so down kapag nagsasalita na cla ng kanilng lingwahe… hope you can help me po kng may alam kayo malapit dito sa Incheon.thanks po,God bless

  5. Hi po,
    When I was searching for requirements for korean visa, nakita ko po itong site ninyo. I just want to ask po, is it possible for me to go with my friend who is going to visit korea. She was invited by her aunt, and she said that she can also ask for an invitation for me. I am still a 3rd year college student and would like to visit korea but will definitely be coming back. And hopeful that I can work there even just for 2 months. But anyway, ano po bah mga requirements needed ng tulad ko na student pa? I don’t have BIR, o any taxes na mga papers. And do I have to purchase the ticket in advance and show it upon applying to the korean embassy? And also, how much money should I have in my bank for them to approved me?
    I hope you can answer me. Thank You very mch

  27. Dear Ms. Betchay,
    I’m so confused about what to really do. My fiance’s living in Seoul. Until now he hasn’t got a job. I’ve been teaching Koreans for almost 5 years now here in the Philippines. But right now I’ve got no job. I quit because I spent those months with my fiance. I’m wondering how I can land a teaching job there because I’m aware that they hire only native speakers. I was thinking that if I ask one of my Korean friends to submit my resume to schools or hagwons there, would I have a big chance of being hired and sponsored??? And also, I was thinking, what if I study TESOL there? How much would I need for the show money and what requirements should I present??? Last of my options, if I go there as a tourist for 2weeks, what would be the requirements and how much money should I have?? I was also thinking that if I go there as a tourist, is it possible for me to submit resumes to hagwons??? Please help me. I’m desperate. What should I do Ms. Betchay???

  36. Hi Betchay! A couple of weeks ago, I met two Filipinas on the subway and they mentioned about free Korean Language Classes at Hyehwa University.(we talked for like an hour) One of them said that she knew the person in charge of the classes and told me to just call her in case I decide to take up a course. I finally decided take up a class a few days ago but unfortunately their numbers are no longer reachable, like they had it cut or something. Anyway, I really am very interested in improving my Korean which is why I am writing to you now. Do you know of any free Korean Language class in Seoul? Please help.
    I have recently been frequenting your blog for it is informative and entertaining. Your articles are nicely written. Kudos!

    1. Hi Lowel! Check with POEA. Continuous naman ang hiring dito sa factory workers/service crew. Pero isa sa requirements nila ay Korean language so dapat kang mag-aral ng Korean language.

  62. anyeong ms.betchay.. gusto ko po sana magwork sa korea, hiring po ba ng cook or assistant cook sa south korea? graduate po ako ng culinary…
    thank you and godless..

    1. Hi Mira! You should check the POEA if they have openings for cooks. Or check the hotels in Korea. Knowing the Korean language is a must.

      1. anyong mis.betchay ask ko lng po anong requirements sa pag-apply ng factory worker at kung gaano katagal bago makaalis? aactuaally galing na po me ng korea ng-asawa po me daati ng koreano at maarunong na rin po me magsalita ng linggwahe nila pero ng-divorce na po kami and now gusto ko po magwork doon…thank u po…

  63. I guess this is your blockbuster blog. based on the no. of replies it generates. haha…dami talaga gusto magtrabaho dyan sa SK di lang alam ang proseso lalong-lalo sa mga white collar jobs. Paano nga ba? thru internet, agency o personal?
    As for factory worker, medyo may alam ako dito. First you must be at least 18y.o and not more than 38y.o, Must take and pass KLT (korean language test) usually given once a year by POEA. After you pass, you will undergo medical exam. if FIT to work your name will be included in job roster, wait until you will be selected. consider yourself lucky if you will be selected in 1 year span. Male applicants has great advantage though. As for salary minimum is 957,000won (P36,175) a month (8hrs/day, 5days a week) beyond that is considered an overtime/holiday. usually the employer will provide your room and food free of charge.

    1. we need to pass the KLT, before i appyl as a factory worker???, o POEA has to find jobs for as if will pass the exam?? ask lng poh., tnx

I saw on jobstreet phil na hiring ung samsung korea so I might try to go to that agency. Do you think it’s possible na mag apply ako dun? Di po ba talaga pede ung magpapasa ako ng resume ko sa students ko sa mga companies dun? I already know how to read/write/speak in Korean, sobrang gusto ko tlaga ma experience ang korean culture. I like almost all the Korean foods that I’ve tried. My students want me to go there and they are willing to invite and support me like living in their house. I hope for your reply. THANKS!

    1. Hi Cathy! You can’t work here as a nurse unless you’re a citizen. The nursing test is really tough. Most professional jobs available to Pinoys are in the line of engineering. If you really want to work here, try applying for Korean companies in the Philippines. Sometimes, they send their workers to branches in Korea ;p
