Young Hong Kongers differ in choosing career opportunities in mainland

Abbie Chin got her masters degree in Beijing. After she graduated, she decided to stay in the mainland -- first in Beijing, and now in Shanghai. She says young Hong Kongers have a lot to offer.

In the fast-paced city of Shanghai, working overtime is nothing out of the ordinary. Abbie often orders food with her mobile phone, and eats her meals between work assignments. But she says her work-life balance is better than it would be if she worked the same job back in Hong Kong.

But for many Hong Kong residents, working in the mainland is not easy. There are differences in language, culture, and air quality, not to mention being far away from home.

Alan Wong has spent his entire life in Hong Kong. Like two thirds of young people in Hong Kong, Alan does not want to work in the mainland. As he said, he is concerned about air quality, food safety and other things in the mainland.

The two smart, young and hardworking Hong Kongers, like many others, face different struggles in one diverse country.
