Top Online Job Portals in Hong Kong

Job Hunting Made Easy in Hong Kong

Whether you are actively looking for a job or just checking out better opportunities out there, online job portals are no doubt the best starting point for you. These portals are at your fingertips to assist your job hunting in Hong Kong anywhere anytime.

According to a survey, employers in Asia favor online job portals over the recruitment channels such as referrals and company websites. Thanks to the much broader audience base of these sites, it is much quicker to fill up job openings using these portals than with traditional recruitment methods. That said, it can still be overwhelming and confusing to decide which portal to browse—and this article is at your rescue.

As per an international job board database, the following online job portals scored the highest among other online job boards in Hong Kong in 2019: Recruit.com.hk, JobsDB, Indeed, CTgoodjobs and Monster. The score is calculated according to seven main objective criteria such as user experience, CV database and changes to the monthly and annual audience.

These portals offer information in Chinese and English. Recruit.com.hk and CTgoodjobs are available in both Chinese and English, whereas JobsDB’s Hong Kong site is in English. That said, many job listings on these portals provide recruitment information in Chinese. In addition, JobsDB has also established other portals, which are available in Chinese, that help you find jobs in industries where employees come and go easily such as retail and catering and hospitality.

Sending in job applications on some of these portals—Recruit.com.hk, JobsDB and CTgoodjobs—is no sweat. You can simply click the “apply” button without bothering yourself to open an account in advance.

These portals are similar in the way that they both offer insightful career advice and resources like CV templates stylized for different jobs. These are helpful for jobseekers to apply for a job and keep themselves posted on the latest updates in the job market.

Exclusive platform for university students

Unlike the other portals, JIJIS is an English-only job-searching platform designed exclusively for the university students of full-time UGC-funded programmes in Hong Kong. Hence, users must create an account with their university email address to use the service. It is a popular site for students and graduates looking for internships and jobs.

Universities, such as NETjobs of The University of Hong Kong, PolyU Job Board of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and CU Job Link of The Chinese University of Hong Kong, have also developed portals for their students and graduates to log onto and check out the latest job listings. This students-only feature is also convenient for employers who are looking to recruit students of a particular university.

While online job portals are handy for your job hunt, don’t forget to also check out other recruitment channels, such as job fairs, networking events and recruitment agency. All the best with your job hunt!
