  1. AHH I have tea from the same place as the tea you were drinking/making in the vlog!! It's this tea house in old town san diego right? I was there last fall :')) SD was lovelyyyy

  2. So you’re only allow to work in office company if you took a class in korea? Is that right?

    So if my major is Bs Psychology in my country and decided to work in korea i would be in the field of psychology? I cannot work as an HR? Or any work related to human behavior and human relationship? Or i would just continue my degree there even if i already graduated here?

    Sorry i’m so confuse

  3. Hi, I have a bachelor in Psychology, but Korea is where I want to live in for couple of years and maybe longer if possible and it's better for me compared in the U.S. I'm trying to see if I can teach English in Korea although English is still my 2nd language and if non teaching job in Korea. Thank you for your video, and i wonder do you get paid better in Korea compared to in the U.S? I'm working on learning Korean as well.

  4. Wow, you’re pretty lucky with your workplace. I’m an artist, but I haven’t had any exhibitions yet. But I’m learning Korean, (for about a year now), and I would like to see if there’s a way to get names of galleries that would take on an artist who never had an exhibition before. Do you know any?

  5. This is interesting for me because I am currently studying to get my degree in world language (Korean) but after I want to get a bachelors degree but can't decide on what. I'm stuck between going for a major in Spanish and a minor in Chinese or getting my bachelors in marketing. I'm really undecided and this video had a little info about marketing so I was surprised.

  6. Your description of your company is making me want to go work in Korea! but as you said not all company is like that so..
    I'm currently learning Korean so maybe one day I'll go to Korea…? Idk
    Just found your channel, saw a couple of vids and i'm happy to say I'll be subscribing you!

  7. I think you have a very positive attitude and I like the way you tell things. 🙂 The thing I'm not understanding currently (but that might be because I only watched a few of your videos) is a) can you talk in Korean? and b) do you feel like an alien or not if you're basically living an American (work?) life in Korea? (Because personally I wouldn't want to live in my home country's style in another country. 🙂 Curious and wishing you the best! ♡

  8. Hi! Does your company hire engineers specifically industrial engineers? Or like someone responsible for the Quality Assurance? 🙂 andddd thank you for this videos!! Learned a lot of insights 😍

  9. I really would love to work and live in Korea, but I don't speak the language and I only have an associates degree in culinary. (You mentioned something about a masters). Might have to forget that dream. 🙂 But it does look beautiful there.

  10. As usual you are so organized with those time stamps! I left my earphones at home so I'll have to watch it at home later (can't do anything in an open office environment without earphones AYK)

  11. How many days off do you get a week? if you get any. I know of friends who worked in Japan who would only get one so I was wondering how it was for Korean.

  12. wow, thank you Cari for sharing your experience. I am having E7visa in korea and yes i am having some difficult and rare situations too even its been more than a year since i came. But like you, i need to choose the bright side of things and always feel blessed even during struggle. Fighting!

  13. I Know this video came out quite some time back and you are out vacationing in Europe (have fun btw 🌸) butttttt I’ve been thinking about asking you this question for a long time now so … 💩😅

    I was wondering whether you took the TOPIK tests(?) is that something korean companies check considering all emails and meetings are in korean?

    PS. Can’t wait for your Europe travel vloggsss 🌿

  14. Ok so i feel like I'm going to have major panic/anxiety attacks just to get a apartment (I'm picky) and a job but I make friends quite easily.

  15. Omg I just realized I was watching the wrong video! Well not wrong, totally liked it, but I thought I was watching Rachel and Jun’s channel, and I was like “damn Rachel has changed a lot” and then saw everyone writing Cari in the comments and was like wtf? Then scrolled up and realized “omg this is a completely different person 🙈🙊🙉”

  16. Women's resting day is actually not just her company.
    It's set in the Korean labour law to give a female employee the right to ask for 1 day off a months due to menstruation related sickness. And this is of course separate from your personal/sick leave

    Below is the excerpt I found in Korean labour law;

    근로기준법 제73조(생리휴가) 사용자는 여성 근로자가 청구하면 월 1일의 생리휴가를 주어야 한다.

    선원법 제93조(생리휴식) 선박소유자는 여성선원에게 월 1일의 생리휴식을 주어야 한다.

    군인의 지위 및 복무에 관한 기본법 시행령 제12조(청원휴가)

    ④ 여성 군인은 생리기간 중 휴식과 임신한 경우의 검진을 위하여 매월 1일의 여성보건휴가를 받을 수 있다

    Apparently it also applies to female sailors and soldiers (Second and third sentence) :p
    For female soldiers it's specified that it can also be used for monthly check up while she is pregnant (Last sentence)

  17. Heyy, do you know if there are any jobs relating to translation? Like aside from teaching English jobs? Thank youu

  18. I would think that they would be concern more with your experience instead of your major. My major is in Mechanical Engineering but I have been doing Accounting for 20+ years, does that disqualify me from Accounting jobs?

  19. Wow…Description in French! Amazing. Do you also speak French along with Korean? I like what you are doing for us foreigner in Korea.

  20. THANKS!!! Unfortunately I don't have a Korean embassy in my country. I learned is very important for rent house and other stuff, demonstrate a income. I have a permanent income from the Social Security and already have "key for work" that's the name SS given, and South Korea is on the list of countries I can move. I don't need to work if a want to but I can't seat on a sofa and don't do anything.
    My BA mayor is in education and I speak Spanish and English perfectly. My MA is full in Archaeology and I star my PHD in History of the Caribbean but 2 Huracans with a week of difference, destroy the island. Is very hard to star again, I try during a year and the island turn the economy and general status like in the 40. Very sad but I decide, I can do more for my country from outside like other's do. I start taking Korean classes in January. But I working in the Theatre, Music, TV and Radio industry for year. I have a internship (7 years) acting and general theater production, and working for 6 years like a education manager in the beauty industry for 9 countries. ( Yes I live in aeroplane 78 trips only in one year) I have all the evidence diplomas, letters , news paper etc. I planing to work like a Make-up Artist for artist in a agency. Finally ( sorry for the big introduction) the Holliday visa is the most convenient for me?

  21. Your situation sounds so cool! I found your channel this morning (it's time for my monthly "i want to live in Asia. How can I live in Asia" -phase) and you seem really chill and intelligent! Also, your disclaimer was deeply appreciated, without it I might have started to get way too hopeful. Okay bye, now I have to go and watch the rest of your videos!

  22. 😍💓🌺👍Wow! Really cool info! I enjoyed watching & learning!😍💓🌺👍 Like & New Subscriber!😍💓🌺👍

  23. This video is exactly what I needed! I'm moving to Korea next winter, and will be looking for a job in design (mobile apps, websites). I'm ethnically half Korean, working on improving my Korean language skills, and getting ready to start the job hunting process. How do you recommend I become familiar with Seoul's design industry (i.e. who are the notable design agencies and tech startups, what local design communities exist, salary research, etc.)?

  24. Can someone get a good non teaching job with highschool diploma in korea??! I want to apply for entertaining jobs like idols and models but i want to know what i can do if i didnt get accepted! Can i get a job in pharmacy ,cosmetic counseling, or like beauty cliques for like laser parts or etc ??!

  25. I am basically the same as you. I want to go to korea and work. I want to know places similar to where you work. If you cannot tell me, can you atleast tell me places that are simialr to your job?places like your work?

  26. Question: if you are an English major but don’t want to be a teacher, what kind of jobs could you get there? I minored in film, Would that do anything to help get a job that’s not teaching?

  27. It is so informative everywhere. I am Korean American working at Korean company (kinda big) in NY. But Korea looks better in many ways…

  28. Did you apply and do your job interview in Korean or in English? And if you did both in English, how did you know you could?
    This is what I have been waiting to hear while watching the video. 🙂
    I know it has been 7 months since you uploaded this video, but I hope you will still reply.
    I just found your channel and I love your positive attitude, you have such a positive vibe during your videos. They make me laugh and brighten my mood!

  29. I’m a little late to the party but I am a communications major and I was just wondering how that transition/mix of communications to marketing was? I feel like it wouldn’t be that much of a difference but I really don’t know and was curious. 🙂

  30. Seems like a very silicon valley start up type of work place, which is awesome! Not sure if you answered it anywhere, how did you get your internships?

  31. Maybe this is weird but it’s worth a shot.
    I am a 21 year old girl in Sweden.
    I finish my Bachelor’s degree of science in business and economics in june 2019 (it’s in English). We have had many marketing courses and I find marketing the most fun. If there is by chance that your company is hiring or in the near future need to hire foreigners I would love to submit an application. I know you don’t want to exploit where you work here in the comments of course, but if there is anyone I can contact.

  32. Oh I happened to see your video and I also worked for the same company as an intern in the summer of 2015! So nice to see that place again:)

  33. I’m in social media marketing here in New York City. Content creating is what I want to work within. I’m looking to apply for the working visa.

  34. I'm so happy I found your channel! we recently went on a holiday to Seoul and I found you and watched some videos for some insight, but after our trip we fell in love with Korea and really want to move there (from Japan) and your videos are so helpful! I know this video is from a long time ago but please keep making content! all insight into your daily life is great and so so helpful! thank you!!

  35. It still amazes me that people wanna work overseas but not…learn the language, like can you imagine how hard and stressful that would be 😂

  36. Wait!! You worked with Simon and Martina with Eat Your Kimchi?? Am I getting that right?? Omg !! Two of my favorite youtubers used to know and work with each other that’s so cool !!

  37. Curious, but what is the pay in Korea vs. cost of living? Do they not pay enough for you to survive or is it comparable to having a decent job in the USA and having a comfortable lifestyle?

  38. Your videos are so informative! I just found your channel by chance. My dream is to work in China or Korea for one year once I graduate from college this June! Thank you for all the help!

  39. This was very informative! Thank you. I will share this with my daughter. She is studying Korean and want to go to Korea for atleast a year to learn more about the culture.

  40. Can I ask a question? What course did you take up in College? What courses are indemand in Korea for Jobs?… Thank you in advance. I love this video very realistic and informative😇❤

  41. it left me confused being realistic on job listing ..or even living so basically i have to be middle or high class be well educated to get hired and servive in korea? that correct???for any other person view your channel if people not educated then there no possibility to find job?😒

  42. If you can speak Korean are your chances greater? And do you need a degree from a Korean university for a non teaching job (not including cafes etc but more of a higher paying job) or can you have one from America
