Hey everyone, long time no update (as I’m sure you’re well aware). The members of the SeoulGrid team have moved on to other projects that have been keeping us all busy, unfortunately leaving us with no time to update dear old SeoulGrid.com.
I figured I’d drop in to let everyone know what I’ve been working on, in case any of our readers find it useful. You can check it out at KoreaJobFinder.com – it’s a Korean Job Board, similar to Dave’s ESL Cafe or Work’N'Play, but with a more modern design that is (hopefully) easier to use and navigate. It has a search functionality that allows you to specify location, salary, hours, student age (for teaching jobs), etc., and browse only the jobs that meet your criteria. Important job details are summarized at the top of each job post, so you can save time from not having to skim-read the entire post.
I wanted to build a job site that caters to the needs of job seekers, so if you have any feedback or ideas on how I could make the website better, I’d love to hear about it. I’m constantly improving the website, so there’s a good chance your feedback will make it into a future update. What annoys you about current job websites? What features would make your job-search easier? I really want to work closely with the users on this project to build the job website that job-seekers in Korea really want, so shoot me a message on the contact page of the site if you have any input.
I’m not sure how many of SeoulGrid’s readers live or want to live in Korea and how many are just visiting, but if you’re looking for a job in Korea, give Korea Job Finder a spin and let me know what you think. If you find the website useful, help us out by linking to it on your blog, facebook, or twitter! I’d really appreciate it.
As for SeoulGrid, it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. The website still gets a surprising amount of traffic from search engines and other websites, and we still occasionally get feedback from people who found the website useful. We’ll keep it running as an archive of useful content (at the time of this writing, 260 posts worth), and maybe one day when one of us has more free time, SeoulGrid will be brought back from cryosleep. (Sorry — I’ve been reading a lot of sci-fi recently).
That’s all from me for now. Take care and happy job hunting!
