Hi VJ,

As a foreigner, trying to find work in Hong Kong can be very challenging due to a variety of factors. First of all, if you are not a resident of Hong Kong you will require a company to sponsor you for a work permit and, unless you have specific experience in the sector you are looking to enter, this will be difficult as you will need to demonstrate you have professional experience and skills that are not available in the local market. Cantonese and Mandarin language skills are also common requirements for a lot of roles in Hong Kong and, if you are not physically based in the country to attend interviews, my view is that it will be extremely difficult to find a position. My suggestions are to first of all explore the work visa issue and then if you are not already based in Hong Kong consider visiting for an extended period to give you a better chance of success with your job hunting.

Once based in Hong Kong you will need to leverage off your experience and skills, so if your skills are in the hospitality sector you can research major hotel chains and hospitality groups as they all generally recruit directly through the media, by referral and direct applications. You can also visit local job boards such as smartjob.com and classifiedpost.com as well as use social media channels to keep on top of job opportunities. Another way many foreigners arrive in Hong Kong for work is by joining a company overseas and then transferring with that company to Asia, so depending on your circumstances this may be an option for you.
