For Jessica Leung Yin-yin, the options are running out. Two months ago, the 28-year-old returned from a training course in Australia with dreams of becoming an executive secretary in Central. Instead, she was in the Mongkok Local Employment Service yesterday applying for a $491-a-day temporary job collecting government data. 'The agencies can find me a job, but only as a junior secretary, for $8,000 or $9,000 [a month],' Ms Leung said. 'I'm looking for $10,000 to $11,000.' Her non-working mother is in her 60s while her 25-year-old brother brings home just $7,000 a month as a karaoke DJ in a Wan Chai club. 'When I have no more money I will take a job, even if they offer me $8,000,' she conceded. After lunch, Mongkok labour officers interviewing job-seekers had posted the 'full' sign. Chicken industry workers had already been in to register. 'But they don't want to find a job; they want the personal assistance,' said one staffer. 'In fact, there are more jobs than unemployed,' he added. 'We receive 80 vacancies a day, sometimes more than 100. We can successfully place 200 to 300 jobs a month. 'I think employees here are choosy but some employers are not very generous - they offer $6,000 for a clerk.' Scores of cards on the walls advertised $6,000 jobs, a few offered just $4,000 a month and the occasional gem promised $10,000. 'Jobs are still plentiful in Hong Kong,' said the officer. 'I had a job-seeker who carried her luggage in here. She'd just [emigrated] from China and wanted to find a job with lodgings. 'I phoned some agencies and she got a job with a bed, two meals a day and $6,000 in an old age home.'
