Just wondering if anybody happens to know an effective recruitment
agency for Asia-Pacific or even better a job website for design
professionals. Specifically Interaction Designers/Information
Architects. I'm more interested in China/Singapore/Taiwan than
Australia.

Thanks!

Hi Adrian,

As far as I know there is no specialized job site for interaction
design professionals in Asia Pacific. I've been using JobsDB.com
only. Recruit.net is pretty nice but not that useful to employers.

I don't like JobsDB because of its poorly-designed UI and high
charges, so I'm very keen to create a simple job board (like using
jobberBase) for that particular niche in Hong Kong, and hopefully
other people would find it helpful too.

Hi Adrian,

I agree with Belle. I have yet to encounter an agency who specializes
with this domain. But www.aquent.com has a strong APAC practice.
Aquent is all about marketing & creative professionals.

Best,
Darwin

In my recruting effort for Interaction Designers at Autodesk in
Shanghai, I've been able to locate strong candidates through
coroflot.com, which is a specialized in the design community (by the
way, I'm still looking for interaction designers!), so I would
suggest to start there.

For the Chinese Market, the large majority of the posts are by local
companies, in Chinese websites... one of the most popular is 51 Jobs
(http://www.51jobs.cn/); a lot of IT companies are using it.

Good luck!

Hi Itamar,

We spoke briefly before in a thread where I was asking for an
Asia-pacifc design related job search engine. You mentioned that there
were some openings at Autodesk in Shanghai and I've seen one through
recruit.net that caught my eye:
http://job.csdn.net/Jobs/ViewJob/C_5f2585824f2a47a694fcc5916835f0b1.aspx
I was wondering if you wouldn't mind answering some questions about
this position and your understanding of the user experience team at
Autodesk. If there is someone else I should direct these questions to,
would you please forward me their contact information.

Thank you for your time

Kind Regards,
Adrian
