Advice for non-Koreans working for Korean companies overseas

In case you missed it, be sure to check out the interview with Don Southerton in the WSJ’s Korea RealTime:

Don Southerton, a U.S. business consultant, has written several publications centering on the Korean auto industry, new urbanism, entrepreneurialism, and early U.S.-Korean business ventures. His firm, Bridging Culture Worldwide, provides strategy, consulting and training to businesses that are working in South Korea.

Just a few weeks ago, he published his latest, an e-book and paperback called “Korea Facing: Secrets for Success in Korean Global Business.”

With it, he has flipped the tables to look at the challenges that non-Koreans face working in the overseas offices and subsidiaries of Korean firms. The book is available in e-book form for Amazon’s Kindle, Barnes & Noble’s Nook and Apple’s iPad devices.

You can buy Don’s book here, and visit the site of his consulting firm here. At that site, you can also view his fine ebook about Incheon, Chemulpo to Songdo IBD.

    Thanks Robert. Again focus of work is for the growing number of Non-Koreans globally employed by Korea based Groups. Not to mention those Korea expats, ju jaewon, dispatched to the West…

    Don, I’m also much obliged for you making one of your books available to all of us and (2, especially 2) making it bilingual, allowing me to work on my Korean again.
