I would like to pursue a more international career. I am an EU citizen, and would like to move to HK for work.
I am a fresh graduate from Uni. of technology with a Master's degree. In the country that I live in, it is very common to work in the field of your studies throughout your study period (which for me was 5 years). Therefore I have that much work experience in the building services consultancy sector. I am now working as a project engineer/consultant in this field for a relatively big company.
I sent my open cv to an HK company that I was interested in, and I just received an email from them requesting to inform them
1. My expected package (salary, housing…etc)
2. My status In Hong Kong (do I have permit to work in Hong Kong? Or do they have to apply one for me?)
I don't have a permit yet. I know it's hard to get a working visa for a foreign fresh graduate, but I do have a lot of working experience behind me despite my relatively young age. Also, the field that I am in, is so specific, that the best experts actually come from my home country and the publications in this field are mostly in my mother language.
The point in writing this, was to ask You for your opinion what an expected package for a (Assistant) Project Manager would be ok for HK standards? Now my salary is HKD 35,000 and I have 37 days of holidays/year.
Thank you so much in advance for your help!!
