​📌 Debate Korea activity review

📌 FAQ 🙋‍♂️

Q. So far, I know that Debate Korea has chosen external activity jockeys, but is this time only recruiting interns?

A. In the future, we plan to recruit field staff for the 8th external activities and the World Korean Debate Contest.


Q. Do you work from home?

A. I think the endemic era is coming and we are entering a period of stability from COVID-19. Due to the nature of event planning, there are many tasks that need to be done together through cooperation.


Q. Can I apply even if I do not have discussion experience?

A. We have held many discussion events, and although the World Korean Debate Contest we plan is a discussion contest, it doesn't matter if you have any discussion experience! There are many tasks that are separate from the discussion experience, such as planning cultural exchange events and incidental events, and on-site operation, so please do not worry and apply!


Q. Will I only work on the team I applied for for 6 months?

A. No! Debate Korea aims for growth through various experiences! We will assign the first job to the team that applied as much as possible, but you will be able to experience various jobs outside of the field you applied for during your working period.
