you can try jobsdb.com.hk or classifiedpost.com.  There are a lot of postings there.  otherwise, teaching english is a good option. There’s quite a demand for that and there’s always a need for native-english speaking teachers.

I lived in Hong Kong for 2 years (Shanghai for about 9 months too) and loved it! You will have a great time!

They recently changed the law, so even though you will enter on a spousal visa, you will be able to apply/get jobs. 

I used to work at the American Chamber of Commerce in HK– they are a great resource for jobs/networking. There is also an American Women’s Association– mostly wives who don’t work and don’t want to. It is really easy to make friends, and you will find HK really easy to get around. 

The daily paper (the name is slipping my mind!) has great job listings– not the China Daily, but the one for HK. 

Since you don’t have kids you will want to live in Central/Mid Levels or near by– most of the expats live there, and there are tons of things to do in the area. But no place on the island is too far, and transportation is amazing (NY doesn’t even compare!) 

Again— you will love it! Feel free to email if you have more questions…I have an amazing yoga place if you are into it! 

Have Fun! [email protected]

I am an engineering grad student, and am therefore around a lot of international students (including many from China). Even though they learn English, many doubt their pronounciation (like, there’s no ‘th’ sound in Chinese, so they say z or s). If you happen to end up around any universities, I’m sure there would be people interested in a tutor 🙂
