Having said that, I think that the book makes it seem easier than it actually is to be able to get a university job. I have a master's degree, a couple of years of teaching/training experience, and am currently in Korea. According to the book, I should have a decent shot at acquiring a university job. So after editing my application documents and having a current Korean university professor (and HR professional) look over my resume, I applied to over twenty-five different positions university and unigwon positions. The result: not a single interview. It wasn't just sending out resumes either- it was networking, attending KOTESOL meetings and other tips that the book recommended.
So while the book offers good tips and while I would certainly recommend it, I think that the book views the Korean university position job market with rose-colored glasses. In reality, there are so many people in Korea looking for work (and so many people with advanced degrees) that it is next to impossible to get a university job these days. Again I recommend the book, but I think it can falsely get your hopes up when the English teaching market is getting more and more competitive each year in Korea. Without a master's (or higher degree) in ESL and at least two years of university teaching experience, you're going to be hard-pressed to find a university job in my humble opinion.
