10 Big Companies in South Korea I Want to Join

Share it Please
South Korea I may say is a progressive country. There are countless of big companies thriving in this country and I think this is a perfect place for ambitious people like me. There could be a lot of opportunities waiting but I'll tell you, this country is very strict when it comes to accepting foreign workers. Unless you are a native English speaker and you are after English teaching position, applying for jobs in the most coveted companies is like next to almost impossible.



If you want to get a job in South Korea, you must acquire a working visa first and each visa can be obtained depending on the type and the scope of work it allows. As much as I want to penetrate to big companies, my Visa does not allow me to do so. I don't want to go illegal so I am doing the best way I can to at least make my Visa valid to apply for jobs that best suit my abilities.

If given a chance, I am going to apply for any of the following 10 great companies in South Korea:

1. Samsung Electronics




First on my list is no other than the Samsung Electronics. Who wouldn't want to join the world’s biggest technology firm? In South Korea, Samsung is the largest company ever listed. Samsung has a lot of  industrial subsidiaries like insurance and heavy industries but I like to tap on their Electronics conglomerate which includes manufacturing of Samsung Mobile device. I want to be a part of a company that helps shape the world's technological advancement.


2. LG Electronics



Second on my list is LG Electronics, a competitor of Samsung Electronics. Like Samsung, LG Electronics is a multinational company that operates on various businesses. I want to join the Mobile Communication division.

3.  KT Telecommunications Services



I am also interested to join the bandwagon of telecommunication service provider, so I think KT Telecommunications Services is a perfect company for this choice.

4. Com2uS



Play at work is what I think when I hear Com2Us. Being one of the top companies in South Korea that specializes on developing fun and unique games for Smartphones. Game tester could be a very lucrative job and I want to do it with this company.

 5. Daum Communications




I love internet and I want to just browse on the web for information. Daum Communications is just another web service provide in Korea. It's like Google or Yahoo because it provides web services like email, forums, shopping and news.

6. Hyundai Group




One of the most popular, if not the biggest company in South Korea is the Hyundai. I can take any job from any Hyundai conglomerate because I know I am in good hands with this company.

7. Korean Air


I think it would be exciting to join an airline company and I want to join the Korea Air, the largest airline in South Korea. Korean Air is also included in the top 20 airlines in the world. Being a cabin staff for this airline could be a good idea.

8. SK Group




Particularly the SK Telecom. There are a lot of SK subsidiaries in South Korea, in fact it is the third largest conglomerate in South Korea, but if base on my education and experience, I think I am suited for a position in the telecommunication department.

9. Korean Broadcasting System




Who does not want to work on media? Aside from earning a lot, you can have the chance to see the brightest K-pop stars and artists of South Korea. There are four major TV networks in Korea and KBS is the biggest network so far.

10. S-Oil


I am thinking to join also the Oil industry. S-Oil corporation is I think the best option for this. Why not? I think employees of S-Oil are getting a handsome pay from this petroleum and refinery company.

Nothing is impossible. I know in due time, I could acquire a working Visa that allow me to join at least one of the companies I mentioned above. Keep the Faith!!!

    2. Maybe you're referring to the VEGA phones? The company is called "Pantech & Curitel" and their phone line is called SKY. Models include the VEGA phone.

  4. I've actually seen most of these companies back when I visited Korea (Jeonju specifically). But if I were to choose which company to work for (if given the chance), I'd try at Korean Air. I've always wanted to be a flight attendant, and I've always loved the sophisticated look of their cabin crew.

  11. I don't work nor have I worked for any of those companies. However, I had students in the past who worked for those companies. Many of those companies hire foreign employees, mostly engineers from India, Russia and of course the Philippines.

  20. Looking for a job might be a bit time consuming and difficult especially if you are applying from abroad, but with the help of recruiters, this might be easier. Try taking a look at Tommy recruit page:
