Sorry if this is not posted in the right place. I've been trying to get on other message boards that are more directly related to Korea but I just can't get anyone to activate my account.
I just need some advice on how to get another job in Korea after I was fired after two weeks in Pusan. This is my first time in Korea and my boss insists that I find another job because she says that I'm "not suited for the job." I have a masters degree (not in linguistics or tesl) so technically I have the credentials. But the woman just wants me out. (This is just a private language school).
I asked her to extend my Visa until I found another job and she agreed. The thing is though, she wants me to write a letter of resignation. Even though she is forcing me out. My contract says if I quit then I have to repay the airfare. So I think she's trying to screw me. Plus I need the two weeks wages, I'm running out of money.
I believe I need for her to give me a Letter of Release so I can take it to immigration and cancel my visa, leave the country, return on a tourist visa, and use that to find employment. But I may have a hard time getting this Letter of Release if I don't give her a letter of resignation.
Also I only have a vague idea on how to go about all this (paperwork). Does anyone know anything?
Also, if I am firm on the fact I was fired, how would I get another job? Wouldn't it look bad if I told the new possible employer that I was fired?
Again, I'm sorry if I am not posting this in the right place. I just can't seem to find the right information anywhere. I suppose I can call immigration, but I have no phone and really need an insiders take on this. I would appreciate any advice.
