Quick scenario and hope to get your opinion on what I should do. So, quick story. I've applied for several university jobs but because of the new "you need to two years of university experience to work at a university" non-sense, I was unable to get those jobs.
Currently, I am working kind of a hybrid type of job: afterschool program, privates at academy, university teaching, etc. (all under the umbrella of one hagwon).
The owner of the after-school business wants to directly contract with me to teach at one solitary school. Accepting this would affectively cut out my boss (middle man) and I would work directly for this guy.
Here lies my problem. My current employer called my new potential employer and convinced him that he could not get me a working visa in Korea (I am currently in my second year here with a working visa and would simply slide into my new year working with him on March 1). She has now made my new potential employer concerned that he cannot get a working visa for me because he may not meet certain qualifications of a "educational identity" in Korea.

I'm sure their are guidelines into what companies can and cannot offer a visa for me. Does anyone know what a Korean business has to be classified as (educationally) in order to issue a visa for a foreigner?
