I plan on moving to HK late next year but have been slightly discouraged by talk about the difficulty of getting a work permit, especially for someone young and relatively inexperienced.
I've been working in Singapore as a business/IT journalist for the last two years, after graduating from the U.S. I speak fluent Mandarin/Cantonese (my written Chinese isn't great, but I've done interviews in these languages). I had initially planned on just packing up and moving over to HK where I have accomodation, but have been advised against that. There is also little chance that my current employer would post me over. I intend to apply for jobs over the internet and fly into HK as and when there are serious interviews...is this a feasible plan?
What are my chances of getting a writing-related job and the work permit?
