    I got the interview from a referrer of a friend, that was the start of a summer semester and GSO (named MEAO then) was looking for student to work as part-time office assistants to help with the admission process and daily clerical work.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at City University of Hong Kong (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was just with a supervisor and without HR. Long conversation on the research aspects and short one on money. Simply, if they really need you, negotiate as hard as possible. It's good to know the top range for certain position as the local culture is to give at first the lowest possible salary.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at City University of Hong Kong (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Initially approached about job after employer found my CV on LinkedIn. This is quite typical for Hong Kong. I sent in materials then had a 45 Skype pre-interview with the Dean. This was then followed by a very professional two day process in Hong Kong, job talk, interview, tour of campus and tour of potential housing. Met many faculty but no students. Very well hosted, run like typical US academic interview where you give a 30 minute lecture with a 10 minute Q and A to faculty and then have a panel interview with about 5 professors and someone from HRO. Experience was good. Employer met all travel and accommodation costs to fly me to HK.
