The United States is a land of opportunity, but for many, the opportunity comes with a steep learning curve.
The nation is awash in opportunities for designers who want to make a name for themselves in the design world.
And while many of those designers are making money, others find themselves struggling to make ends meet.
For many Korean architecture companies, the challenge is compounded by a lack of funds.
But one of the architects in the market, a graduate of the Korean National Academy of Sciences in Seoul, has figured out a way to make an extra buck while still having a shot at getting noticed.
Kim Hyun-woo has developed a startup company called Design-Caps that helps foreign-born architects find the jobs they need in the United States.
Kim’s dream was to start his own design company but he struggled to find enough work.
He decided to start a startup to find qualified design-caps who could work on his designs, Kim told The Washington Post.
“Design-Camps is a unique startup platform that allows us to hire designers and engineers from around the world.
We offer them access to our offices and a full-time, flexible schedule,” Kim said.
“They can work on any project we have in mind.”
The company, which has grown to employ more than 40 people, is one of many that has sprung up to fill a void in the Korean market, especially as the country has struggled to fill the jobs created in the post-Katrina era.
The shortage of skilled foreign-trained architects is a major challenge for American companies in a time of global economic uncertainty.
But for Korean architects who are struggling to find jobs, the shortage of foreign-educated architects can be especially challenging.
“The number of Korean architects that I know is about a third,” Kim told the Post.
“And they are working on projects that don’t even make it to the first phase of the design-building process.
It’s not enough.”
The problem is compounded when it comes to finding a way for designers to break into the industry.
A lack of funding, coupled with the fact that many companies are closed or underperforming, make it hard for aspiring designers to land work, according to Kim.
The only way for foreign-designers to make it into the design business is to become an accredited professional in a foreign country, and there is no guarantee that the country will pay a salary for a designer.
Korean architects need to apply for a foreign-language license and get permission from the government to work in the U.S., so they have to get accreditation from the National Academy, the Korean American Cultural Center or the Korean-American Institute of Design.
They also have to register with the US Department of Labor and the Bureau of Labor Statistics to qualify for certain jobs.
The government doesn’t have an online application portal that allows designers to apply to work at a new company or a new job.
The lack of money can also make it difficult for many aspiring designers who don’t have any experience to land jobs.
When Kim first started Design-Cs in 2015, he had just received his Ph.
D. in architectural design.
But that was about the time he realized the lack of financial aid he had received for his thesis project.
Kim had received only $150 for his dissertation, which was funded through a grant from the Korean Institute of Arts and Science.
He had no way of making any money for the project, so he started to think about starting his own business.
His entrepreneurial spirit inspired him to make another idea for his project, but it wasn’t until 2017 that he decided to give the business a try.
Since then, Kim has built up his business to a point where he can pay his rent, and he is looking to expand to the U, Canada and Europe.
But he still needs a lot of funding to do so.
For the past two years, Kim and his business partner, Jeon Jeong-jin, have been working to raise $10,000 for the company to be able to hire more designers to work on its projects.
Kim says the goal is to hire at least 30 people a year to work for Design-Cap.
The company has received $2.5 million in private investment from companies such as Google, Amazon, Qualcomm and Cisco, according the Washington Post article.
The business has also received funding from a $2 million grant from Silicon Valley’s Tides Foundation and another $500,000 from the South Korean government.
The startup’s most recent funding round was secured by the US government in March 2017.
Even with the additional funding, Kim still has a lot to learn about the Korean economy.
He doesn’t know how much foreign-style design is actually produced in the country.
The Korean government doesn, too.
Kim hopes to be an ambassador for Korean design, but he says he is also looking to make some money as a freelancer to make more money for his design work
