Q: Where to start searching for work in Hong Kong and Shanghai

I have recently worked as a Business Analyst on various projects with a South Australian company name RAA. Additionally, I recently completed my MBA at the University of South Australia, which was crucial to strengthen my knowledge and skills related to management and business analysis.
Where do I begin my job search for a person like myself who only speaks English?
Cheers……

Of course it's harder if you don't speak the language, however there are ways out there for you you to get in touch with companies.

My advice to you would be to get informed about which specific companies are in Shanghai and in Hong Kong - as in, which ones you specifically wish to work for.

Most Chinese job searching websites are completely in Chinese, and of course might not have the top companies you might be interested in. So my suggestion is to target as best you can, go on their individual websites and ask them for interview.

Otherwise, another popular option is to go to your country's Chamber of Commerce - many have counseling options, lists of all your country's firms in the country, organized meetings for job searchers, etc...

Hope it helped

You can search on local webs like 51job and Chinahr. A lot of informations is just write in English, I do not think you will find it hard.

If in Hongkong, it will be even easier for a English speaker.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
