외국계회사에서 18년간 근무를 하였고 새로운 삶을 위해 자진 퇴사한 대한민국 1인 직장인이었습니다. 그 간의 직장생활을 정리하면서 퇴사 전 준비물처럼 꼭 챙겨야 할 것들을 중심으로 나열한 에세이 책입니다. 사회적으로 퇴사를 종용하는 분위기의 책들이 만연하다는 생각으로 저는 이 책을 조금은 무겁게 다루고 싶었습니다. 또한, 오랜 기간 고민과 준비로 퇴사를 하였으나 퇴사 전, 후로 놓친 것들에 대한 내용도 같이 실었습니다. 마지막으로, 고달픈 대한민국 직장인을 위로하며 회사에 머무는 그들에게 비단 회사를 그만두는 것만이 용기가 필요한 것이 아니라 견디는 것도 대단한 용기가 필요한 일이라고 말씀 드리고 싶습니다. 회사를 그만두기로 결정한 분들에게는 마지막 다짐용의 책이 될 것입니다.

Writer : Ssoy (쏘이)

The writer is challenging a new life. She enjoys the present though nothing is guaranteed.Instead of the writer’s detailed introduction, her favorite saying will say her well.Ideals are like stars: You will not succeed in touching them with your hands, but like the seafaring man on the ocean desert of waters, you choose them as your guides, and following them, you reach your destiny. (Carl Schurz)

Translators: Choi Eun-sil, Shin Soo-jung, Kim So-yeon , Shin Sang-gyu and Moon So-young


SOME English, a small group consisting of four graduates of the Graduate School of Interpretation and Translation (GSIT) at Busan University of Foreign Studies (BUFS). They desire to implement any projects because they want something to help them grow on their road to English translation mastery. Their first project was to publish an English-translated book. As they are reluctant to take on the translation of prodigious amounts of content, they have worked on translation to the extent that their daily lives were not too disrupted. The book is the story of SSOY, an author and one of our translators, before and after leaving the company. Among the travails laid out in her journey, one related to the preparation of the GSIT entrance exam caught the translators’ attention. The book is recommended for foreigners eager to catch a glimpse before entering the GSIT in Korea and anyone interested in translation and interpretation. For the latter, this could provide a fascinating comparison between the Korean and English versions.
