Faced by the difficulty of finding a job back home, more South Koreans are choosing to come to Singapore – even if they are overqualified for the positions they take up here.

Ms. Lee Ju-yeon wanted to further her studies and see the world after graduating from Seoul’s Kyunghee University back in 2003.

She spent some time living and working overseas, and returned with a Master’s degree from a UK university. But she was unable to find a job in Korea.

The 35-year-old said: “It’s really hard to get a job in Korea if you are older than your peers, because the culture is different from other countries. If you’re a fresh graduate, you have to be a certain age. So the problem was that there was no company that wanted to hire me because I was too old for their standards.”
