SEOUL, Korea, August 09 (Korea Bizwire) – Career discontinuity is a major problem for women in Korea. According to a 2011 report by the Statistics Korea, 19.3 percent of married Korean women, about 190 million, were in a career break situation after marriage (47.0%), due to childrearing (28.7%), and during and after maternity (20.0%).
The Ministry of Gender Equality and Family and Korean job portal Findjob have launched an app helping women find decent part-time jobs.
Findjob has provided the biggest female specific job information in Korea. About 40,000 Findjob help wanted ads can be easily looked up through on the newly launched app.
Women in career breaks looking for part-time jobs are especially having a hard time getting quality jobs. Women can have access to information on employers providing insurance plans and flexible working schedules on the ‘Female Specific Part-time Job Notice App.’
The app is all about quick and easy accessibility, due to the fact that complex categories for young adults between jobs can be confusing for women in career breaks. The app provides a special category that puts together announcements looking for married women only. The Female Specific Part-time Job Notice App is also composed of job segments preferred by women.
