EPISODE SLICE #45: Expat Kerri Dishes on Landing University Teaching Jobs in Korea

Today, and Atlas Sliced, YouTube sensation Expat Kerri is on the show! I’m thrilled to have her on. Kerri has taught English in Korea for a number of years and has documented her time abroad on her popular YouTube channel. What I love about Kerri is that she is really genuine. You can tell she really loves making videos and teaching, and her presence on camera is something special. She glows!

She’s on the show to talk mainly about teaching at the university level in South Korea. University jobs in Korea are much harder to get and are very different than typical teaching jobs most expats get. Here are some highlights from the episode slice.

  • How to get a university teaching job in Korea without a Master’s degree
  • How having a Master’s degree can tremendously help you get a university teaching job
  • How speaking Korean can make you a more marketable candidate
  • How she dealt with culture shock when she first arrived in Korea
  • How she taught herself Korean and made time for it
  • What kind of “royalty” benefits university teachers have in Korea (This is seriously awesome.)
  • How her YouTube videos have benefitted her professionally and personally

I loved what she said at the end of the interview, and I’m making it a tweetable: “Attitude is everything… Your attitude IS your experience, and it IS your daily life.” —> Click to Tweet!

    I can speak English quite well, but it is not my mother tongue. I’m Italian, and I also speak Spanish. What about teaching one of these two languages in Korea? Do you happen to know if it’s a viable option?

    • Myria83

      By the way, I’m currently studying Korean, I’ve a MD in Development Economics and I worked in many different EU and non-EU countries.
      Thanks for everything, and keep the posts coming! I’ll stay tuned! :-)

        Hi there, I have no idea about teaching Spanish or Italian in Korea, but it’s worth a shot to research. The demand is much lower. I might contact a recruiting agency and ask them that question. A few good agencies are Adventure Teaching, Reach to Teach, Teach Away, and Worknplay Consulting. Hope that helps!

    Great interview. Kerri is amazing. I taught in the same area as her and fell in love with her passion for travel, teaching, and learning. Great job Kerri!
