    US CPA moving to Hong Kong - URGENT!!

    Hi everyone,

    I moved to HK just few weeks back with my husband. I have been looking for job since I am here but no luck. I am US CPA + Chartered accountant + 4 years of experience in a BIG 5. I do not know Cantonese/Mandarin but is very fluent in English (R/W/S).

    Can anyone advice me on how to look for a job in HK? Should I contact any head hunters? if yes, then where to look for them? How's the job market in HK? Do they have visa issue like US in HK?

    Please reply.

    Thanks!

    I am currently on visitor visa and yet to apply for dependent visa (I know that will allow me to work), but I want my independent visa status to work in HK.

    I thought the Big 5 died out a long time ago. Enron, and all that.

    Was that a typo? I hope so, otherwise you might have a hard time convincing anyone your skills/knowledge is up to date.

    Anyway, if you're looking for a job I'm sure any of the Big 4 firms will be looking to hire but it depends on your specialism I'd imagine.
