Excerpted from the Hong Kong Career Guide

Pre-Interview Preparation

Do not be surprised if the employer seems to know a great deal about you; it is not uncommon for Hong Kong companies to research job applicants before the interview. Likewise, it would be helpful for you to research possible interview panel members, who usually are direct supervisors of the open position.

Interview Conduct

Appropriate dress is considered a sign of respect in Hong Kong. Therefore, appearance is extremely important, especially at an interview.

The Interview

During a typical interview, an employer will focus on and evaluate the candidate’s analytical ability, personality, presentation skills and ability to handle pressure. Many companies use psychometric testing, including verbal, numerical and language testing and personality profiling, as well as skills testing, to examine whether the candidate has the knowledge and skills required for the position.

Post Interview

It is permissible to contact the potential employer after the interview to inquire as to the outcome. You should, however, wait a reasonable amount of time — usually one week after the interview — and should not call too frequently.

This is just a short sample of what you’ll find in over 100 pages of information in the complete Hong Kong Guide.
