    List of recruitment agencies

    Hi everyone,

    I am searching for a job in construction (I'm a jobless civil engineer), but every single resume I sent was apparently useless : nearly no company answered me back (I know it's the practice here) through websites such as Classified Post.

    As I have no result up to now, i wish to use recruitment agencies. Do anyone knows where to find them ?

    Maybe it's possible to reply by quoting this message and filling the gaps per sector in my list ?
    -Accounting/Auditing :
    -Advertising/Marketing :
    -Transportation :
    -Banking/Finance :
    -Beauty/Health :
    -Building/Construction :
    ...

    If you know some recruiters working in different sectors, pls share ! It could be useful for other people...

    Thank you very much everyone.

    Little precision

    I also know these websites.
    However, my concern is to have somebody to talk to, having some links, some advice, able to direct my researches : a "recruiter".

    I know ADECCO provides that kind of service, for example, but they are not specialized in my field.

    That's the kind of service i'm looking for (if it exists...of course)

    Thanks !

    If you're looking for a job in construction why are you asking about recruitment agencies who specialise in accounting and marketing? I'm confused?

    I work in real estate and in the UK the real estate recruiters often also cover the contstruction sector, no idea if they do here, but you could take a look! So you could try Judd Farris, Macdonald & Company, Michael Page to start with. If they don't cover your specialism they may be able to tell you who does.

    You are not getting any reply may be because you have not supply enought information for them to consider you. Such as your EXPECTED SALARY, or date of birth. (this two information are not neccessary when you apply for jobs in US or UK, but, believed me, it's the first things any HR in Hong Kong looking at.)

    Slightly strange first post - where did the OP say he hadn't supplied this information?

    I suspect the more likely reason the OP has had no replies is the vast number of applications companies are likely getting given the economy and so they can pick someone with 100% the list of experience they are looking for.

    some tips I picked up that helps...photo on CV, DOB, marital status and expected and current salary(MUST!!) also on CV.

    Umm...there are lots of recruitment agencies in HK, and to list them would take forever, jsut go on Jobs DB and have a browse of the ads and you will find many agenceis through the ads.

    Is this really the case if you're focusing on a very specialised sector though as frosties is? For example the agencies that specialise in my industry are all offices of UK based firms, and seem quite happy with a UK style CV. The kind of roles I'm applying for aren't advertised on jobs boards, in fact they're rarely advertised at all.

    Out of interest what salary would you advise you put down if your last role was in London? It would most likely be more than a comparable role here, and if you put it down you could immediately be written off as too expensive?

    My personal view is that adding that extra bits of info (DOB, Marital Status, Salary etc) is no harm. Better more than not enough me thinks!!

    It does not really matter that your last role was in London...every company will have a range or budget in which they can offer...and if you are over, the rest of the CV will not be read. I think you should find out what is the average salary in your field with your level of experience that is going around in the Hong Kong market.
