Employment and job training
Foreigners can be employed depending on their purpose of entry as stated on their visa. Marriage immigrants who entered Korea with F-6 visas have a legal right to work. To determine whether your visa allows you to work in Korea, visit HiKorea (Foreigner Information Center, www.hikorea.go.kr) or call 1345 (do not use a telephone exchange number).
Job placement agencies
|Employment Center||State-run free job placement center that links job seekers and employers. Until you find work, this center will arrange interviews with employers.|
|Women’s Resources Development Center||Agency established for women to help their employment and job training. Job seekers can use some programs at cheap prices.|
|Hikorea||Provides online civil services for foreigners, including those related to entry and departure, employment, job finding, investment, and the provision of civil application documents.|
