South Korea is one of the four ‘Asian Tigers’, nations that saw rapid economic development following the Second World War, and in South Korea’s case, the Korean War. South Korea has a highly developed economy that is focused on tech, automotive, manufacturing and services. Brands like Hyundai and Samsung are some of the world’s most recognisable and valuable.
Hiring in South Korea is tricky, but lucrative if done properly. South Korea is a G20 major economy and ranks 10th globally in terms of nominal GDP. Its workforce is highly specialised, highly educated and extensively skilled. Export and trade are key to the South Korean economy (it is the 7th largest exporter of goods in the world), so foreign and investment and hiring are seen as critical.
