For any corporate job in Korea, there are three main options.

1) Work at their American office and get transferred to Korea.

2) Be recruited through MBA events, university events etc.

3) Have a residency visa and speak Korean

Without any of this, it is extremely difficult to just “get hired.” For a traditional work visa, they have to prove that your job is so special a Korean can’t do it, that you have special skills etc. and all most foreigners can offer is that “they speak English,” which is not enough.

Do you speak and are able to write in Korean? If not unfortunately the options will be quite slim. Will mostly be limited to teaching English. If your qualifications and experience or good, you could potentially get a job with an international firm or organization that has offices in Korea and you are only required to use English. But again those jobs are hard to get and are often temporary in nature as well.

I assume you mean "they speak good English", to say the least?

Judging by OP (& other posts so far), I doubt s/he could even declare such language skills in either English or Korean.

Oh no, I absolutely mean "speak English." With the way English test scores are emphasized (even if they are not fluent), just showing that is enough for immigration to say that a Korean can do it.
