I graduated from a UK university last September with a bachelor's degree in marketing and advertising. I would like to find a job related to marketing and perhaps take on a management position in three to five years.

I have been working as a campaign executive intern at an SME in the UK over the past four months. I'm due to finish my stint there in June and was thinking about moving to Hong Kong to develop my career.

Before I do that, however, I was hoping to clarify a few things.

Firstly, what exactly is the best way for a fresh graduate to develop a career in marketing?  I'd like to work for the marketing department of a big company, like P&G, but getting that kind of job could be quite difficut.

What kind of position should I take in order to meet my goal of getting into management within three to five years?

Secondly, I was wondering what my chances were of getting a work visa.

I'm origninally from the Mainland and am fluent in Cantonese, Mandarin and English.

Would very much appreciate your advice.
