Having a great resume is critical!
If you want to apply for a job in Hong Kong, regardless of whether you are already working here, you will realize from our work page that Westerners;
- Are not the favoured employee profile for most employers.
- May be viewed as potentially more expensive and less committed to Hong Kong than a local permanent resident.
- Will have to be credible enough to justify to Immigration (see visas) the employment of a foreign national over a local resident.
Your resume is your personal sales brochure. If your resume isn't compelling you will not encourage a prospective employer to disregard their reluctance to hire an ex-patriot worker. Ironically, it is the senior executives with most to offer who often lack the experience of writing a good curriculum vitae.
If you are going to secure an interview in the world-class job market of Hong Kong you will need to have a world-class resume. Set aside a few hours and subscribe to the automated resume/CV writing and cover letter service at our sister site CV Wizard.com.
