I was born in HK and finished my Marketing and Accounting degrees in Australia.
I'm currnetly working in South Australia (State Government) as a Licensing Officer - "Golden Bowl" (however, not realated to what I studied). We have a good working environment here, e.g. holiday and superannunication, etc, however, my only concern is the job that I'm doing now is totally unrelated to my degree (I'm doing my CPA). I know that if I continue to work here, my future will be limited and I will not be able to finish my CPA (I must work in a accounting related role to become a fully qualified CPA).
I'm now thinking to go back to HK and work as a Audit Trainee, however the risk that I have to take is, i must give up my current job (I'm now earning about HK$22000 per month, if I continue to work here, my future's earning will be about HK$28000 per month max for my life in today standard). If I go back to HK, what it means to me is, my income will be much less than now, but with more opportunities. Or, I should stick with the government job and working in here forever.
Can someone, especially accountants advise me, I want to know what can I expect as a Auditor/Accountant in HK and should I come back?
Thank you so much.
