I appreciate your advices to my job hunting!
Here, I raise an open question on the IT industry of Hongkong. Hope everybody can bring out his vision.
As you know, Cyberport is being completed in Hongkong (costed 2 billion USD). It's supposed to provide a world-class environment for the clustering of quality IT related companies. In another word, Hongkong may hope to prosper its IT industry through this project.
Some of you have commented that Hongkong has no IT industry. I think it's true to some extent. There is few software/system developers. There is almost zero research lab or R&D company. Although some universities (like HKUST) have recruited many good professors/researchers, most of them focus on academia. A lot of high degreed graduates have gone overseas.
However, is it possible that a prosperous IT industry could be established in Hongkong in the near future? Hongkong is facing the mainland of China, which should have a huge demand (larger than anywhere else) for IT products and solutions. Hongkong has abundant intelligence support, as it possesses 3 excellent universities of Asia. Hongkong can offer great income to foreign IT talents, though the housing would be a little uncomfortable.
Look forward to hearing your opinions.
