I'm looking for a native Korean speaker to help me with the following three tasks for an academic research project on corporations.
1.) Official list of companies that are affiliated with business corporations for 2011 and 2012
Please obtain an official list of corporations that are affiliated with large business groups/chaebol (such as Samsung or Hyundai) for the end of 2011 and 2012. This list should be available at the annual reports by the Korean Fair Trade Commission (or any other official state agency) in Korean. The names of the companies that belong to a group can stay in Korean. I know that the list is also available for most business groups in wikipedia but I would need an official source.
2.) Research on politically connected firms
I have a list of about 30 Korean companies that had substantially positive or negative stock returns directly after the parliamentary election of April 2012 and after the presidential election of December 2012. I would ask you to research the web to establish a cited link between these companies and political parties or candidates (can be any kind of webpage (official, news article, forum) in Korean but official or news article would be preferred. For instance, from an English news page I can establish a link between EG Corporation and Saenuri's presidential candidate Park because her brother is stakeholder and CEO of this firm.
3.) Research on Past Government/Political Careers of Business Managers
I have an excel file with the past career paths of the 4,936 directors of Korean corporations in Korean. I would like to ask you to search the file and document whether any director has a previous career in political parties, government office, civil service, or state agencies. This might sound like a lot of work but you could use the search option in excel to find for instance "Grand National Party" and approx, 15 other definitions such as "minister", "civil servant", "financial supervisory services". Most of the cells for the managers are empty and I think that only a small portion has such career paths, so the coding should not take so long.
Of course, I can send you the documents and examples in advance upon request, so you could get a better estimation about the work load.
Thank you very much for your interest in the project and I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
