It's amazing how much stuff you have to do when looking for a job in Korea--even after you've been through the process 4 times . . .
My checklist is comprised of the following things.
1. Update my resume.
2. Update my cover letter.
3. Get new copies of my university transcripts.
4. Copy of my university degree--done.
5. Medical health check--do after new contract is signed.
6. Criminal background check--do while on vacation in Canada.
While it might seem 'easy' to update the resume I've accumulated a lot of experience over the four plus years I've been in Korea. I find it hard to edit the details down and even delete some of them when those details may be what get me the 'dream job' I want . . .
Last night, in spite of being tired from teaching and working during the day, Julianne and I did our updated resume head shots. Here's mine,
Yikes . . . do I look tired?
Since Julianne and I were already dressed up we decided to do some 'couple shots' for our families and friends back home.
I then decided to change my shirt color to see if I could get a better head shot for myself . . .
I asked Julianne to say something each time she took a shot of me to try and get me to smile (I was really tired at this point) and it just wasn't working, lol. I think I may be doing a Spock eyebrow-thing here too . . .
And then she said something (aren't you wondering what? ha) that made me smile and laugh but by this point there was no hiding the fatigue . . .
After resigning myself to the fact that I look like I'd just taken a dozen sleeping pills washed down with a bottle of soju . . . Julianne and I did a few more couple shots and called it a night.
I have a lot of pics from last weekend in Seoul that I want to put up but don't know when I'll have time . . .
Soooooo busy . . .
