    Are you totally set on HK?

    Singapore might be worth a try as Star tv is based there as is MTV asia etc.

    Look at Media Magazine or on the jobs' site: jobs.brandrepublic.com. Many agencies, media companies and recruitment agencies post there, although you'll see Hong Kong section is a bit thin but there are a few AE jobs. Also try ambition.com.hk which has sales and marketing jobs, sometimes in the media industry.

    Good luck but obviously you realise it's not a great time now; advertising budgets are being slashed and so are the headcounts at industry-supporting companies.
