Hong Kong – Job hunting becomes mobile

27 February 2013

Job seekers in Hong Kong are constantly on the lookout for new opportunities and prove to take advantage of a rapidly growing mobile market, according to local job board jobsDB. A survey found that 88% of job seekers in Hong Kong use job websites for job hunting. An additional 41% of mobile site users use smartphones for job searching.

Justin Yiu, general manager at jobsDB Hong Kong, said: “With technology advancement, the internet has become the major channel for job search. Mobile job searching not only provides jobseekers with convenience and flexibility that they could always be on the lookout for opportunities.”

The survey also found that 81% of respondents are always looking for the new jobs, while 44% are “exploring”. This means, they may apply when opportunities arise even if they are not actively looking for jobs. 64% of them are looking for jobs at least once per week.

“There are a large number of jobseekers who are exploring in Hong Kong. Hong Kong people are more of change seekers than job seekers,” said Mr Yiu.
