What i can "work" in Hong Kong ?

Being staying in Australia since 2008 as a student. until now, I feel I'm wasting time on studying and work as a part-time in Pizza-Hut in Melbourne. As my goal is getting the Australia "PR" but in this year it look like imposable to get it. So I back to Hong Kong and I seeking for a job. Now here is a issue. Beside I have ielts 5.5 (Not really High)and  and Year 11 High School level. also some experience in Automotive.
I have nothing. I also feel it is a waste if i just find something that don't required anything what I be experience and Learn. So what can I do? I typing on English ver not because i want to show off, it simply because my Chinese typing are bad as hell. you can reply in English or  Chinese if you have some answer. I feel hopeless right now.  thank:smile_13:

i am afraid to tell u as u are in no man's land.
u dont have any real marketable skills, if u are any smarter u would have at least go for an auto mechanics course and get paper though.
haven't u see enuf ppl here who are more qualified than u and still have zilch in jobs.
your goose is kind of nearly cooked should u don't think seriously think of your ( not too distant ) future.

50 yrs ago many blokes would have done great with whatever u had.
The royal ensign flag hasn't  flown for 15 yrs now.

I don't know what you can do in HK...perhaps you could go into retail? Entry level jobs? Or maybe continue studying?

To be honest, your english isn't any good at all. I can tell by what you said. More like in HK style. How can we tell you what to do? You don't even know yourself. It's too bad. Try everything since you're young.

Btw, no offense. Just telling the truth. If you want better job, go back to college to achieve more. Look for some course relate to your interest.
Best of luck anyway.

jimbo86 2014-5-8 01:30 PM

don't think u have any marketable skills, i heard of some kids similar situation like u, spend time abroad and did nothing constructive. U had your time to learn and u didn't.
Why I say this? Is I was in your same boat and I realize i had wanted a good life, so i busted my A*s in school, I went for professional sch. I did the time when things weren't so tight.
And honestly i weasel thru, I was just able to get pass by the skin of my A*s or call it also ran.
Look if u dont do anything constructive now u future will be even dim.
Don't laugh at the folks who resort to pickup cardboard or fish pop cans out of garbage cans. U can do much worse than that.
And I only work 2 afternoon a wk now. Aren't I am glad I have traded hard work yrs ago, so i can cruise along.

jimbo86 2014-5-8 01:34 PM

should u have done an automotive tech course in Oz at least u can be a foreman  or a manager in hk, as u can go for 1 in HK now but it doesn't have the same commanding presence as a foreign paper.

You can earn a much better salary in Australia just in entry level job. Why come to HK just make merely thirty something per hour in salary. HKer expected someone from Australia must be university graduated and good in English.

Shit. I hate to break it to you, bro, but I wouldn't trust you with anything English related. However, if you could do a native accent, then perhaps you can get a TESOL and teach English. People look for the accent above all.

jimbo86 2014-5-13 11:24 AM

u sound funny, if u are directing the comment at yours truly then u are entitle to your own opinion.
How could this bloke has a real old blighty or Oz accent?
Should he had spent 15 yrs there and always spoke white then he will.

What? Oh nononono! I wasn't talking about you:smile_35:! Sorry if my comment seemed like that!:(
I was referring to OP. Some people can catch an accent real quick, and some never do. If he does, then good for him. If he doesn't, then he is out of luck.

jimbo86 2014-5-13 03:31 PM

no prb.
sadly the OP never worked hard enough to get any real walking papers.
Where I am in Vancouver, there are probably so many kids wasted their parents' $$ anyways.
if he really wanted his life to change which is not impossible, at least time is still on his side, unlike me where i am 1 foot in the grave, LOL.
But if to work another 30-40 yrs doing menial job, then i mind as well jump off the bridge.
always remember short term gain = long term pain.
good times =/= long time.
One has to think hard lor.

I hear you. Ah yes, Vancouver, with all its rich immigrants and Porsche-driving 16 year-olds.
For OP, he has all the time in the world to get his career started, but he can't expect a nice salary for the first few years. Working is good, learning while working is better, and learning the trade secrets is the best. Heck, as long as he knows his way around a certain field, he can make a good living by starting up a company and reaping the rewards himself. Don't need a degree for that.

jimbo86 2014-5-13 04:20 PM

no such thing a degree guarantee u to be successful.
but the truth is whether one can read enuf to benefit the wisdom from peers or the ones who had been in the trenches.
One thing I do find, able to read and reading lots will always benefit oneself.
Being semi-retired now i try to read all the major papers. i use 3 computer and a phone to log onto NYT. As one a/c can only read 10 articles a mth.
Super man L* did lots of reading when young and probably till now, as he was not able to go to school a lot when young.  
without a lot of wisdom is a lot harder to anything successful.
When one read success stories one will find out many successful folks have tremendous failed attempt, only unrelenting trials & errors they got it right.
Formula for success is very much universally truth. There's simply no short cuts.

I don't know...ummm good luck.

jimbo86 2014-5-17 12:18 AM

is not easy to say from here.
it all depends on what u know and who u know too.
if u have a specific professional degree then u know what are u going into.
a biz degree then u also know.
the rest of liberal arts & sciences are all free for all. It all depends on how smart u are or how often & how much u pop smarties candies?
Not being sexist a pretty face can get u further and 20 lbs above then your chances may diminish by 50%.
Hope I am wong too.
HK ppl are very functional & realistic, they only wanna to chum up with u because of
u are loaded, very deep pockets.
they can get favours, benefits , connections from u.
u carrying the latest LV bag, that means the both above hold true to u.

Is not hard to do a little social experiment, u can pretend that u residing in one of the board room tenements, looking for a job, free place for lodging and your cash flow is in a bit of quandary.
I can assure u that your phone connections will go off so fast and u will never ever be able to get a reply or being answered from that very same number again.
or if meeting in person u can see how fast these ppl will disappear, much fast than David Copperfield's optical illusions.

it all depends how close can u sound as compare to the BBC radio announcer.
Queens engrish definitely command a top dollar.
If not then something s/he had wished spending more time with the occidentals then instead of stuck in chinatown.

You can quite easily get a job that pays $10K to $13K here in Hong Kong.

No related experience is required. You walk in and they will hire you. As easy as that.

Just a bad place to be in if you're in nomansland .-.

I don't like Australian accent hehe

To be honest, it's hard to get a job without a bachelor degree. :smile_13:

jimbo86 2014-8-27 01:06 PM

i was " the more education u have the less likelihood u became rich" by J Paul getty.
some of these folks who can really sell, they can make 100k /mth with pushing mobile phone.
the prime example is joe girard who sold so many cars that he was operating as if he is a doctor who needs appointment to buy car from him.

Nowadays, finding a job is not as difficult as you think in Hong Kong. The point is how do you present yourself when you get an interview in future? Do you have any preparation?
