And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.

Does anyone know is it easy to get a job in HK with a BBA degree? With fluent cantonese and partial mandarin. But my writing is terribly bad, reading newspaper still ok .

If you can speak English like a native English speaker without any asian accents, you chances of a job is definitely higher. A BBA is a dime a dozen these days so having good English is a leg up.

used to live in that area a couple years ago. its pretty much like living in west van. it takes at least 10 minutes to drive to shatin. mostly large single houses there and starting price now is probably at least around 80-100m.

BBA is the minimum requirement to get a job here.
it is difficult to compete with people here who have a couple of undergrad degrees, 3 master degrees and a handful of professional qualification.

Speak fluent English is a must, but native english speakers will not make you much better. Of course it depends on which company you are working for. I used to work for Bank of China, absolutely no English needed.

Say you have a BBA / fluent English / etc...

How likely will they hire you if you can't read/write Chinese, but you can fluently speak/understand it?

Chances are... not likely. The only companies you can apply to are the international companies. However, as international companies, the competition is very high. In this case, either your work experience is very good or you have very a network.... if not then..... well... you are out of luck.

Are the detached houses older or relatively new? How is the neighborhood in terms of outside traffic, etc.

Thanks.

do you have local working experience? companies look heavily on your years of experience if only a degree holder.

its almost in the middle of no where. houses are relatively new and well kept. given the price of that area, it better be.

if you can afford it, its a great place to live, much better than living at the peak imo... but it takes at least 30 minutes to drive to central.

Not very likely, like others have said a Bachelor degree is just an entry in. I see a lot of people coming back with Masters degree and getting into jobs.

Anyways I'm living in Happy Valley, owning the place. But I sometimes go back to my parents place which is in Sai Kung.
