Business English 진짜 피료입니끼? 읽으보세요.

Don’t listen to my advice.  Listen to the facts.
First-time job seeker, career-changer, it doesn’t matter.  What isn’t said here is that current employers will be pressured to keep those employees with superior English skills.  The reason?  If companies don’t keep these employees, then their competitors will take them.  There are TOO MANY SMART PEOPLE IN KOREA WHEN COMPARED TO THE NUMBER OF GOOD JOBS HERE NOW, AND THIS WILL REMAIN IN EFFECT FOR THE FORSEEABLE FUTURE.  THE BEST, PERHAPS THE ONLY WAY TO GET AN EDGE?  ENGLISH.  SORRY, BUT THOSE ARE THE FACTS.

Unless you are a genius that can generate revenues at your oompany, single-handedly, Korean companies need to export additional goods and services abroad.  Its population cannot sustain a GDP that grows 5% a year,  cannot pay for the increased use of energy,  and simultaneously address its aging population problem.  The only way to accomplish that feat is to increase the scale of its companies’ revenues and profits.  The path to that end can only be travelled by having highly skilled workers that can communicate abroad.  The language used universally to communicate in business abroad?  English.  It is very simple, really.   From people to products, Korea doesn’t trail anyone, nor any nation.  It simply does not communicate in the same tongue as those who control the vast majority of the world’s money flow.  Again, very simple.
