Dear Doc,

I graduated from a US University (top 30) in 2009 (econ major) and came back to Hong Kong right before the Chinese New Year. I started looking for jobs after the holidays, however, didn't get any good offers. Most of the companies that call me for an interviews are those insurance company (I heard they will force you to pay back the salary if you didn't reach their sales target). I even applied for those 6-8K jobs on the labor department website, but still not getting any feedback at all. The only reason that I think of is lack of any internship/working experience, is that the reason??? Doc, any company you know of are hiring newbies?! Please, I really really need some help here. Thanks.
