Job Description



The Korea University of Technology and Education (KOREATECH) is a government-funded university with a strong focus on engineering. KOREATECH’s founding philosophy is “seeking truth from the facts” and, although KOREATECH is a small school, it has gained a solid reputation nationally in several aspects, such as Best Education-Oriented University and Best University for Job Placement. In short, KOREATECH ranked 8th in 2010 amongst universities that don’t have a medical program. 
KOREATECH’s main campus is situated near Cheonan city, easily accessible from both Cheonan and Cheongju and with direct connections to Seoul and Daejeon. There is a healthy community of both international students (undergraduate and graduate) and foreign professors in KOREATECH. 
The Global Lounge is the ground floor of the Global Education Center and its role is to provide students with foreign language (particularly English) conversation practice as well as allowing them to experience international cultural traditions. Essentially, the Global Lounge Program hopes to encourage students to use and improve their language skills outside of the classroom to make new friends and broaden their world view. 
Though teaching experience would be useful, this full-time position is more administration than education. While you will be doing some conversation practice, proofreading and potentially teaching, much of your time will be spent at the desk preparing the various programs that are run in the Global Lounge. Graphic design skills would also be ideal in order to design banners and advertising for use around the campus. You will have the opportunity to run evening programs such (e.g. Film Club, Book Club) or even teach a second language (other than Korean). You will be expected to continually attract new students to the Global Lounge as well as carry out all native-speaker duties as reasonably requested of you. The successful candidate will very personable with a good attitude and friendly demeanour as you will effectively be the face of GEC.
