Job Search Overview

The most effective ways to find employment in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region are through the use of online resources, local newspaper classifieds, job/field-related trade magazines and recruitment agents/headhunters. Internet job search resources are by far the easiest way to find suitable jobs and the most convenient way to reach potential employers. Jobseekers can gain free access to online job websites and recruiters to search for jobs under categories of interest. They can customize searches with desired parameters such as salary and position title. In addition, jobseekers can conduct employer research and visit company websites to research organizations, browse job listings and apply online. Résumé/CV postings and job databases allow jobseekers to receive, via email, ‘Job Alerts’ that fall within chosen categories. Those looking for jobs can also attend virtual and live career/job fairs.
