After being away from academia for a year teaching children in Korea, last week I was offered a job as a lecturer in English at a university here in Korea. I will be happy to be back in a university environment again..and even though my PhD was in history I think it will be a great challenge to teach and learn to teach English as a Foreign Language at a university ^^ yay!!
just a quick update as I used to be quite active back in the days of my PHD. I really took a beating trying to find an academic job and even though this job is just an annual contract in a totally different field, I am happy. It was a real chancer coming all the way here to Korea a year ago...and now I have a job at a university and a life here with friends and a boyfriend...and slowly learning Korean ^^ stick in there guys as there is life after the PhD...even if it is one you never expected!!!(up)
Whoa, well done Chrisrolinski!!! Really pleased that you're having such an exciting time in a brand new culture. I'm such a dummy, I initially thought to myself 'but he hasn't mentioned whether he's in North or South Korea' - then it occurred to me. Make the most of your time there, mate, because who knows where this in turn will lead to?
