A shopping-deal website and an online job search engine have offered a new definition of the best job in Hong Kong. It should include, they say, a helicopter ride to Macau for business meetings and an opportunity to watch horse racing in a racecourse VIP room. Groupon Hong Kong and Career Times Online yesterday announced the winner of a marketing campaign that offered what organisers touted as the 'first best job in Hong Kong'. The winner is a 24-year-old former financial trader, Lou Chan Ka-yu, who recently left the banking industry with an eye on the business potential of the internet. During five days as 'shadow chief executive' of Groupon, he will spend time with the deal site's real chief Danny Yeung in business meetings, presentations and social events. The organisers said Chan would also get a taste of the upper-class life on a helicopter ride to Macau for a business trip and a session in the VIP room of Happy Valley racecourse. Chan, who was chosen from some 350 contestants and will start work next week, will also face the press and meet business partners. The former foreign exchange trader said he hoped to get a full-time job in an internet business. 'I would like to have more challenges in life,' he said. The organisers said Chan was chosen after a stringent process. He stood out in interviews with the company's executives, at workshops and in an online vote on videos candidates had to post on the internet. Organisers said Chan's video, in which he sang a song to show his passion, received 9,700 online votes. The University of Toronto graduate said yesterday that he resigned from his HK$30,000-a-month banking job because he wanted to try something new. 'I wanted to see if I am capable of being a CEO,' he said. The campaign was modelled after a 2009 tourism promotion campaign by the Queensland government in Australia, which launched a global hunt for an island caretaker. It attracted 34,000 applicants.
