Why the rich get better jobs

04/12/12

origin: Why the rich get better jobs (http://koreatimes.co.kr)

A survey has shown that those with English internship experiences get better jobs, more so than those with better grades.
 
And the truth is that kids from rich families get the opportunities to get such internships and so they lead to better jobs.
 
These are revealed in a  survey on “piling up specs (specifications as in qualifications)” conducted by the Korea Research Institute for Vocational Education and Training.
 
Among large, finance and government-run companies looking for new employees, the priority is on English. Those who make it had considerably higher than those who did not make it.
 
Some 26.8 percent of those who got recruited had some type of foreign language training overseas as opposed to the 17.9 percent who did not get the job.
 
The survey showed that even those who graduated from universities in Seoul had a poorer chance of getting a good job as compared to those from provincial colleges with higher English proficiencies.
 
Among job applicants, 45.5 percent of those from provincial universities with TOEIC scores of higher than the average of 766 got reliable jobs while only 25.7 percent of those from Seoul colleges who were below average could find employment.
