    Oh, be nice.

    OP- the usual approaches are through recruitment companies or via networking. JobsDB and other online methods are too scattergun.

    Also, if you're general approach to written applications involves a complete lack of capitalisation, note that that will definitely count against you.

    there are any number of recruitment companies in hong kong, most specialising in different industries. try an online search for whatever field you're keen on and take it from there

    Ah, you should've given a fuller account from the outset. Most recruitment companies only handle people who have several years of work experience under their belt already- not recent undergrads. In which case, the online methods and the newspaper ads are actually a resonable avenue to pursue.

    I'm not very sure about this, but I am under the impression than Manpower and Kelly might be cover some of the more entry-level positions.
