그리고 심플스텝스의 창립 보드멤버이신 변임주님이 사임하십니다. 심플스텝스 설립부터 함께 해주신 임주님께 감사드립니다!

As her time on the Board came to a close, we want to express our sincere gratitude for her service. The Board service is the most robust volunteer role, and she took on her Board duties with dedication, kindness, and sincerity. More than her ability to connect people to Simple Steps or her willingness to support all the efforts we had, we are most grateful for her commitment as a founding board member since our inception. We will certainly miss working with you, but we look forward to staying in touch with each other for years to come. Thank you, Imju!

LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional networking platform widely used by job seekers and recruiters. Simple Steps hosted a 3-week-long LinkedIn Boot Camp, providing a tailored curriculum developed by Professor Yeong Seon Kang, Business School, University of Seoul, and Simple Steps’ program directors. The 22 participants worked on their profile to boost their presence on LinkedIn to reflect their personality, professions, and brand. The Boot Camp also featured a special guest webinar by Stella Cho, Recruiting Researcher at Netflix, providing important tips to write a LinkedIn profile that appeals to the recruiters.

심플스텝스의 새로운 부트캠프, LinkedIn 부트캠프가 마무리 되었습니다. 22명의 참가자들이 함께 공부하며 프로필을 업데이트 하고, Netflix의 Recruiting Researcher인 Stella Cho님과 함께 최신 트렌드와 LinkedIn을 효과적으로 활용하는 법도 배워보았어요. 참가자들의 소감을 들어보세요!

“꼭 해야 하는 일이지만 급하지 않아서 늘 순위가 밀리는 일이었어요. 시간을 확보해두고 프로필 업데이트를 할 수 있어 좋았습니다.”

“멤버들과 주고 받는 피드백이 많은 도움이 되었어요. (다른 사람의 평가를 들으니) 내가 어떤 점을 보강해야 하는지 알 수 있었지요”

“저는 처음 가입부터 시작해 가장 큰 변화를 겪은 사람일 거예요. 정보를 하나씩 채워가고, 채용이 되기 위해 내 경력을 어떻게 표현해야 하는지 배웠어요.”

“대단한 언니들이 많구나(라는 걸 느꼈어요). 저보다 더 좋은 학력과 경력을 가진 분들도 끝없는 노력을 통해 커리어를 개척해 나가고 있다는 것을 알았어요. 나도 더 많이 실패하고 또 노력해도 괜찮겠다(는 생각이 듭니다).”

An Interview with Jinae Kang, CEO and Founder of ES Global
Written by Hyunjin Kim

Jinae Kang, a mom of two and a self-made entrepreneur, is the CEO and the founder of ES Global, specializing in exporting specialty food products to major Korean retailers including eMart, Lotte, and Coupang. In 2005, Jinae started a personal blog where she shared her baby’s photos with her friends, families, and other followers. Over time, her business gradually evolved into a B2B platform providing comprehensive services—from customs clearance, distribution to marketing—for U.S. companies looking to enter the Korean market.

Q. From a blog to a full-blown business—tell us more about how you started it all.
J: Ever since I moved to the U.S. at the age of twenty, I dreamed of running my own business in this land of opportunity. However, when I first started this business, I didn’t realize it was a business because it started so small.

It was back in 2004. I was married and just had a child. I started posting my child’s photos up on my blog, and soon I had followers asking me about the baby products captured in the photos. That’s how it all started…
