Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, but I’ve been busy job hunting. Yes, I’m leaving Chonnam University here in Yeosu at the end of February for various reasons that I won’t go into now. No, I haven’t been fired and, no, nothing earth-shaking has been going on. I’ll write another post later and fill everyone in on the details, more or less.
I’ve sent out more than a few applications, and, as a matter of fact, I had an interview yesterday with the good folks at Hanseo University up in Seosan, a smallish city about an hour-and-a-half bus ride south-west from Seoul. However, from Yeosu I had to take the bus to Seoul and then another bus to Hanseo Uni. That’s about 11 hours round-trip normally, but because there was some road construction and the inevitable traffic jam in Seoul, it took 13 hours. I didn’t want to stay overnight in Seoul, so it was a long trip up and back.
I think the interview went OK, but there’s a lot of competition for English-teaching jobs in Korea, so I’ll have to sweat it out for a while until I find out if I got the position. I’ll let you know more about this whole thing later. In the meanwhile, I’m keeping my fingers crossed hoping for a good outcome.
