I hate my current job here--and this after only 6 weeks--for various reasons, not the least of which was my supervisor yelling at me in front of a class of students. How hard is it to quit and get another job legally? (I'm talking about the visas, etc here.)

Thanx,

Well you have a lot of options, don't worry. If you're from Canada, you can leave the country and come back and work on your landing visa for 6 months...it's easy to find a boss who doesn't care about the E-2.


If you're from the US, go to the Korean Embassy in Japan and apply for the 5 year 90-day multiple entry visa. This cancels out everything from your E-2. Then come back and either work illegally for 90 days at a time, or just apply for another job and let your new boss take care of things with immigration. That's what I did several times. Either there will be no problem, or if there is, a bribe is paid and you get the new visa. It's worked for me 3 times without hitch.

Which city do you reside in? I can toss you a bone if you're in Seoul but getting the gig will be totally on your merit.

I'm a creature of habit so things are going to have o suck here before I think of leaving this job for another one in Korea. Now, whether I leave Korea for another countr is a totally different subject.

This isnt a direct answer to your question, but since I've been thinking about this a fair bit now that I'm leaving Korea;

If you establish a good working relationship with your coworkers, and your boss. Plus you manage to gain some sort of love for the kids you teach, then leaving your job is the toughest thing you've ever done.
