International Careers in Korea | Wed, Jan 15, 2020, 16–18 h | Room LE 736, Forsthausweg, Campus Duisburg
Due to its economic development, Korea has experienced an increasing inflow of foreigners. A more recent trend is that more and more highly skilled professionals are entering Korea. In response to declining demography and globalization pressures, Korean government and companies are seeking to recruit foreign talent. While they are somewhat successful in recruiting foreign talent, they face more difficulties in retaining them. Drawing from the literature and my own personal experience, I will provide an overview of opportunities and challenges of international careers for highly skilled foreigners in Korea.
