another application down

I've just applied to Chonnam National University (see its ad here). The uni's not offering much pay, and it's located way, way, way south on the peninsula—right at land's end, in fact, in the small city of Yeosu. But as my buddy Tom says, I shouldn't be too choosy: the object of the game is just to get my ass to Korea right now.

We'll see what happens.



  1. This is more of a private message, but try this website: http://seoulprofessionals.com/

    A foreigner at my university started the site, I don't know him personally, but seems legit.

  2. John,

    I don't think I'd be welcome at Woosong ever again. I did interview with them once, in early 2005, I think, before I turned them down and chose to go to Sookmyung. They wanted me to teach split shifts as well as kids, both of which are deal-breakers for me. No kids, no split shifts, and no weekends.

  3. Lee, you can email me at
