Mike Catherall is a freelance English copywriter from Canada. This blog documents his mission to find a permanent English copywriting position at a 4As agency in Hong Kong. Arriving with his portfolio and a prayer he set out to make this dream a reality without the help of any contacts, friends, knowledge of Cantonese or leads. He had $7500 HK left in his bank account to make this happen and no plane ticket home.

In Hong Kong they work 12,14, sometimes 16 hours days. It's dizzying. I'm not afraid of hard work though.
Tomorrow technically is my last day, but I am hoping they will extend.
