RE: The Asian Travel Guide to Asia
Often canidates for top managerial positions at large companies require multiple degrees. For example a top position at large electronics company might require a masters in commerce and a masters in electronics engineering. Because his knowledge of electronic products and how they are designed from his electronics degree combined with his skill set in buisiness through his commerce degree, and combined with his ability to be fluent in two languages will help guide the company to success. So this foreigner might not
get the position of a sales and marketing manager, he will actually get a more important position with higher pay and more power.

Sales and marketing is pretty much 100% local. Or at least you have to have significant market experience and understanding of the respective Asian market. What can you as a foreigner offer which a local with years of local understanding and experience of the market doesn't? First answer this. If you are already quite successful in marketing in the states, maybe maybe they will do a transfer. But nowadays it's rare. Especially if you don't speak the local language and more importantly understand the local culture.

Their shared service center in shanghai recruits purely within Asia pacific, r and d centers recruits within the country. With the exception of very specialized scientists from India and North America.

The areas which we are seeing hiring foreigners are: top top CEO level executives of the country/ region, we are talking about like CEO of say Accor china. These companies make hundreds of millions of dollars of sales per year IN The country ALONE. These guys are sent over from Europe. Senior managers of Unilever, Phillips and P&G these days are more local. ( have a look at their shanghai offices).

The other area we are seeing foreigner hiring is legal area. This is where if the company is engaged in cross border contracts , say purchase agreements under U.K. Law for example, or cross border m and a. This is where specialist experience is required and locals usually won't have them.
Some operation/ system roles are also open to forigners, provided there is sufficient experience in that specific domain but we are seeing companies like Heineken hiring most of these from local markets. Disney however is sending over a lot of technical people to Asia recently, as they are expanding in these markets. They are mostly sending the guys from The states, these guys do things like procurement for the theme parks, engineering, etc.
