Permanent residency can provide more career options for expat engineers in Hong Kong


I hate my engineering job and am thinking about leaving. Although I like the industry, I’m not happy at my firm. I have an opportunity in another country, with the same industry and in a similar role, but am one year from getting permanent residency in Hong Kong. Should I wait for permanent residency before making a career move? Or take the position and return to Hong Kong in a year or two, when I’m ready to join another company?
