On Nov. 18, a seminar for Buddhist students entitled "How many jobs for Buddhist students and how can we be prepared" was held by Kim Eung-chual, a Joong-Ang Sangha University professor. "We held this seminar to help Buddhist students who are concerned about their future," said Kim Sung-ho, a professor in the Dept. of Indian Philosophy.
"Students of Buddhism and Indian philosophy have a competitive advantage for employment," said the lecturer. According to him, studying Buddhism deeply and having an expert knowledge in this field can help them find employment in a museum as a Buddhist curator as well as in journalism and broadcast writing in Korea. "But the large number of Buddhist students are not well prepared for employment, especially because they lack foreign language ability, compared with other department's students," prof. Kim added.
Many Buddhist students are changing their major because they doubt that their major can get them employment. Nevertheless, the speaker stressed that social demand would increase and employment conditions would improve; so they should behave positively.
