I just graduated with my BA in poli sci / economics and a minor in Chinese studies from UC San diego (if anyone is familiar with US universities). I don't have much $, only about 2.5k US saved, but really want to work and live in HK. I plan to make the move next month
I have been job hunting for a few months now with not too much luck, and so am hoping that being in hong kong will give me a better chance of finding a position somewhere.
the plan: my friend in HK says I can crash with him until I find a job (ie I dont have to pay rent), but after buying the plane ticket I will only have about 1300 US left for food / transportation / random expenses.. is that enough to get me through the job hunt process? I don't need to live extravagantly and am used to living on very little.
I have read through a lot of posts on here about average salaries for expats, but it really depends person to person and skillset / experience. As a recent grad I don't have that much experience.. other than an internship and some retail/food service jobs. I'm looking for sales / marketing / consulting / trade.. along these lines.. I know its broad but without much experience its hard to narrow exactly what I want.
Does anyone know what kind of salary I might expect with my background?
Am I being naive in thinking I can pull this off?
Any input or advise would be greatly appreciated
