Thursday, 05 December 2013 - 13:36

Foreign Employment Promotion and Welfare Ministry has decided to extend the time period by one more year for the Korean jobs seekers who passed the Korean Language in 2011.

The Ministry has taken this decision after considering the requests made by 3000 applicants who have not got Korean job opportunities yet.

11,000 applicants got through the Korean Language efficiency test in 2011 and the names of 3,000 out of the 11,000 have still been in the waiting list.

Having passed the Korean language test, an applicant’s name is enlisted on the job seekers website maintained by the Foreign Employment Ministry, and such names remain on the website generally for 2 years.

Accordingly, the names of all applicants of 2011 were to be automatically deleted from the Ministry website.

However Minister Dilan Perera said in a media briefing held in Colombo today that the potential time period for job seekers in 2011 has been extended by another year.
