Phillip is that a typo? 10 vacation days per year - Ouch!
Well, I guess they might mean plus national holidays. ;) But I don't know either...
Most employers here aren't very generous with vacation or are they?
By Korean standards, 10 vacation days per year is an eternity!
I applied last week and still no word...
I was just wondering if anyone has had a response from them since their application.
Thank for any replies in advance.
I am a MBA graduate with a South African passport, and bilingual in English and Mandarin.
I sent in my resume two weeks ago but still no response.
Are there specific qualifications preferred?
I suppose the job's probably been filled by now...
I had an interview a couple of weeks ago. I got to the final 2 but they picked the other person...
Thanks for the update. Sorry to hear you didn't get this job; I'm sure you'll get the next one.
