With a strong conviction to promote social integration between the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macau and the Mainland after the change-over, there has been special policy supporting and encouraging high school students from the two SARs to pursue their higher education in mainland universities. Since then, around 15000 graduates coming from Hong Kong and Macau competing their university education and beginning to search for jobs in the mainland. This paper sets out against the broader context calling for deep cooperation between the two SARs and mainland cities for developing the Bay economy in South China to critically review how the graduates originally coming from Hong Kong and Macau find their job searches and employment experiences. This presentation also contextualizes the findings against the wider political economy context of internationalization of higher education to examine how student mobility would benefit their future career developments, as well as drawing learning lessons for public policy decision and implementation.
