 • You will find that some vacancies advertised for
   graduates in HK do not ask for specific degree
   subjects. Possession of the degree itself is taken as
   evidence of intellectual prowess. What is more
   important to the potential employer is the range of
   transferable skills and experience which you can
   demonstrate. Possession of work experience and
   relevant postgraduate qualifications may also help
   make you more attractive.
