You need to apply for jobs in Korea. Please upload you cv on job sites in Korea and if the recruiters find your resume suitable they would shortlist you for interview and if you clear the interview then they might sponsor your visa. Check this post for websites where you can upload your resume.

They would want to know your purpose of visit and how long you would be staying in Korea. Also the place where you would be staying. Basically your travel itinerary for the duration of your stay as well as some invitation letter if any. Please read this post for cost of living
are the people raceist ?

Not to the extent that they would rip you apart. Koreans in general do not like a Korean girl having a western boyfriend but things are changing slowly. Koreans are opening up. As far as work is considered they do not have any problem with people from any race as long as people stay ethically and they love and respect the culture of the land.

As a Jewish Canadian computer engineer would it be very hard for me to find a job in South Korea? What would I have to go through?
Nov. 29, 2012 by Erica
As a computer engineer you need atleast 1 years of working experience in your home country and secondly your skills need to be in demand in Korea for you to get a job. So lets say for example if you are an ios or android programmer then your skills would be in high demand. You can visit the post below and upload your resume at various websites.
All the best with your job search.
AVERAGE SALERY IN SOEL KOREA. IS 100 THOUSAND A YEAR A GOOD SALERY?
Feb. 8, 2012 by JERRY MISNER, CA.
You need minimum $1500 or KRW 1,500,000 per month to take care of your living expenses in Korea including food, accommodation maintenance and travelling. So that translates to approx $18000 for a year. So anything above that is good and below that will make it challenging for your to survive (provided accommodation and food is provided)…

Can I study part time for korean makeup on working visa in seoul?
Jul. 1, 2012
If you have a working visa in Seoul you can study anything in Seoul but not the other way round. You cannot work on a student visa.
can i work in big companies in seoul while on student visa
Jun. 12, 2012
No. You cannot. Student visa would not allow you to work in Korea. Also big companies will not take the risk of hiring students as that would be against the law. Ya there could be internship opportunities for you. But you need to check different forums and talk boards for that.
Dear Sir I am a Indian married and will be relocating to Busan South Korea in month of August 2012 I will be in sales job profile and I will be drawings a salary of 2500 USD with accomodation [single] travelling and other basic expenses will be [aid by the company I willl be representing in South Korea I wish to know If I can bring my family [wife & Daughter 13 years old] to South Korea after 6-7 months ,How do children adjust to Korean education system. What will be total basic expenses for family of 3 and whether my wife can get a JoB SHE IS post graduate in food and nutrition.
Jun. 26, 2012 by Pallav Mehta, Busan
It will be very difficult for your wife to get a job. I dont want to give you hopes. But from what I know with most of the Indian couples they come to Korea and then they manage to find job for their wives in the same company where they are working. But it all depends upon yours wife’s skillset and experience and the arrangement with your company. Your wife would be in Korea on dependent visa so legally she would not be allowed to work but some companies employ and they pay monthly salary but that experience is not counted.
Indian couples do send their kids to various schools in Korea. But if you are planning to come for a short duration – say a month or so. IT would not be a good idea to get ur kids here. People who send their kids to schools in Korea mostly get them with a long term view.
You will ideally be sending your kid to International school where the fees are very high. Otherwise you can send them to Korean school. My best recommendation would be that you come here and do your own research or get in touch with a few Indians who are already in Korea. You can find them on Facebook and Yahoo – Search for Indians in Korea Group.
Dear sir, 1.Please will it be possible to work and study in korea with a business visa? 2.Also,what will it require to extend my business visa/tourist visa in korea before it expire? 3.Will i need a work permit/resident permit to work in korea as a foreigner? 4.What is an investment visa all about and how can i get one in korea? 5.Can you help me with the English website of any Information technology(IT) training schools/centres in korea? 5. Finally,what are the terms and condition of working and studying korean language in korea? waiting to hear from you soonest Thanks
Feb. 1, 2012
You would need
E7 visa to work in Korea in the IT Domain
E2 visa to teach any language in Korea
To STUDY in Korea you need D2 visa..
You cannot study with your business, tourist visa.
If your visa expires then you need to RETURN back to your country or leave Korea and then come back again. You cannot extend before it expires..
I believe Seoul KLA offers Korean Language Classes for 3 months on tourist visa – http://www.seoul-kla.com/
They provide Short term C-3 visa..
Other institutes for learning Korean Language are listed here
KAIST is the best IT School in Korea. Its in Daejon.
Dear sir, I know korean language but Still I'm persuing graduation with economics, After graduation I want a job regarding korean language, So pleas tell me,Is there any job for me?

Do you know if any of the college's/universities would teach Technology courses in English in korea? Or if there is anywhere to learn Korean online for free (but that might be bad also because I'm really slow) ~because I want to move there next year.
Apr. 22, 2012 by Charlotte
For learning korean use Talk to me in Korean (http://www.talktomeinkorean.com/) I believe it is the best free resource available online for learning Korean. And they have podcast for download so you can learn it at your convenience.
KAIST is your answer for learning Technology Courses in Korea in English.
First let me thank you for patiently answering all the questions regarding life at SK. Very useful site for many people like me. I got an offer from samsung korea. My wife is an MBBS graduate from China. Is this degree valid here? Can she get any employment as a doctor in korea with this degree? If she has to do a Post Graduation in SK, it is possible in english? Assuming she completes PG, what are the chances of her being employed in a hospital as doctor?
Sep. 1, 2012
You need to check with Seoul Global Center about this. I am not sure about she getting a job but yes she can surely pursue further studies in Korea. There are a lot of Indian students in Korea studyng at KAIST and Seoul National University. You can check the ISA SNU blog for more details. Tutoring is in English. About being employed as a doctor is something you ll have to come here and find out for yourself. Getting a job would not be a problem. There might be a possibility that she would be offered a job where she can work and get paid as well but she will not have rights of an employee. As in, the company will not change her visa from a dependent visa to a specialist visa, so even if she gets a job, she would not get an experience letter and other employee benefits. Again this is somethig you will have to figure out for yourself.

No you cannot work in South Korea based on a tourist visa.
To find a job in Korea you need to know Korean, so the best advice for you would be to join a Korean Language academy to learn korean and then start searching for jobs.
Cost of living in Korea – http://www.thekoreaguide.com/2012/03/24/cost-of-living-in-seoul-korea-2012/
Best place to stay is Seoul. But if you are looking for a job as an English teacher then you will have to stay in other parts of korea where there is demand or jobs for non-western english teachers.
Hanwha E&C in seoul offered me 4000 USD as monthly salary + 500 USD as living allowance monthly. Accomodation as studio apartment is also offered by company near office in Seoul and all security for apartment is beared by company. Bonus is 5% of my annual Salary Please let me know how about tax on my salary. How is this offer as i will shift with my wife and one small kid less than 1 year old. Reply
Mar. 6, 2013 by Anup Mahajan
The offer is definitely good.
Taxes are very low in Korea. Check this post on average salary structure in Korea
and do your calculations accordingly to arrive at your take home figure after deductions of the taxes.
Schools are expensive in Korea. But since you have a year old kid, you would not have to worry about school expenses. So that way your offer is pretty good. I would say go ahead and accept it as on an average people get an offer of around $2500 – $3500 USD.
