I got this e-mail the other day from the Korean Ministry of Labor informing Korea’s foreign migrant workers under the EPS labor program that the Korean government has funded several “care-giving migrant centers” around the nation which are designated to provide assistance to any EPS migrant worker during their job-seeking or change-of-job period.
The “care-giving migrant centers” will help these EPS workers who are currently searching for a new job but are unable to afford accommodations, meals, and other basic necessities. The centers will also provide job placement information, with the help of the Ministry of Labor, to aid these workers find the best and suitable job for them. These job-seeking workers will also receive transportation allowances to be used for their employment searching endeavors. The “care-giving program”
Though I’m not an EPS migrant worker, I posted this email to provide valuable information to my fellow foreign workers here in Korea that is presently facing various job placement issues. As many foreigners here have experienced, Korea can be a very traumatic if you don’t know the language and where to seek for help.
Listed below are the 37 “Care-giving Migrant Centers” accredited by the Korean Ministry of Labor.
