    thinkoutside are not bad recruiters.

    But you need to remember that recruiters are a business, their job is to get you placed and get the money from the school. Nothing more. They will lie, they will cheat.

    But the Korean Won has declined over 40%, correct?

    Savings have nearly been halved. Many instructors are planning to wait it out, hoping the Won returns to previous levels.

    ^Compared to Thailand, it is freezing here. Although, the weather has not been too cold lately (3 degrees C).

    Thanks for the tip. I have also heard good things about this recruiter. Here is the link: Think Outside- Korea's Premier English Teacher Placement Service=

    There are some recruiters that will tell you anything, to get you over here. On the other hand, they may often have many jobs for you to choose from. Recruiters can help make the visa process go more smoothly. There are some recruiters that are not very helpful, and are not timely in replying to emails, etc. It is best to go with a recommended one.

    I do think it is best to apply to the actual school that you want to work for. There are some public schools you can do this with, but most public school jobs, you have to apply through a recruiter.

    The won has seriously declined, since I first arrived here in 2006. Back then, the won was worth more than the Canadian dollar. Now it is worth less. I lose a lot if I send money back to Canada. It looks like the won may be back to somewhat normalcy come May.

    Some recruiters have a good reputation, but if they lie,

    does this mean I am screwed? I show up to work on this exclusive contract that my visa is tied to, and I find out I was lied to,

    so, what are my options?

    Leave Korea, try to change schools? Or, just take it and get screwed?

    I worked there for a year, never again. Boring people, boring work. Shitty food. Some of the lyingest, most in your face drunken geeks on the planet. But the shopping in Seoul is fabulous.

    Yeah, be careful enough to bring some good recording equipment to the interview with you. Or a polygraph.

    Now, I may have to leave where I'm at. The visa runs every 90 days are too expensive, and so are the taxes.

    There are visa problems where I'm at.

    Because I may have no choice but to leave, I have to dabble in Korea, as the economy in the US is very slow right now.
