K: Why did you go to Korea?
My German university was offering an exchange semester here in Seoul. Moreover, if it is possible, I want to work in Korea later, so I see this as a chance to get to know the people and the working world here a little better.
K: What did you do there?
Besides my studies I took a four-week language course. I also went to some concerts. For my last three months here I am now working at Stardom.
K: How did you become overseas fan manager / marketer for Stardom?
Actually it all happened by chance. At the end of October I was at an event and was addressed by someone. They asked me what I was doing in Korea and why I was interested in K-pop. As it turned out, the person was a manager from Stardom. He gave me his business card and told me to call him so we could talk about a job. They were looking for someone who could work in the overseas management department. After a number of visits, face-to-face talks and submitting a variety of documents – among others a CV (in Korean, of course), previous media design work as well as a design for a potential ToppDogg website (which was supposed to be my recruitment test) – I was called by Stardom and got the job at the beginning of January.( Collapse )
(read more at the source)This was pretty interesting! I want more (ex)employees to start giving interviews like this. The part about the teaser photos though...lol I wonder what happened and why only 3 were released. Stardom is so frustrating with their tardiness or just releasing things whenever they feel like it.
