    What kind of Engineers are needed HK?

    So I worked for an electric power company in Canada for over 10 yrs. I take that's not in demand as there are next to no power plant in HK~~~

    I do have a decent background in capital management. Capital projects/investement. Is a bit of a niche through...

    I just need some money to pay for the high rent in HK....

    If you have electrical skills that translate to civil engineering applications (running MTR trains, powering buildings), could be a plus.

    A lot of engineering jobs don't pay all that well...HK is not an engineering haven.

    Also skills in setting up mobile sites, 5G and all...

    Civil engineers who speak Cantonese and, increasingly, Mandarin.

    Hmm, that sucks...

    any familiar with getting Engineering accreditation in HK? I am registered Engineer in Canada. I recall being able to transfer license to work as Engineer in HK.

    Decent written English would be an advantage too.

    Civil engineering here uses English for email and documents.

    Most companies use English for written communications because it's easier than writing Chinese. Spoken language depends on what is the most widely understood in the given context.
