Record num­ber ap­ply for civil ser­vice exam

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

The num­ber of can­di­dates for the 2016 na­tional civil ser­vice exam has sur­passed last year’s, with more than 132,000 ap­pli­cants deemed qual­i­fied for the exam as of mid-week.

A record 27,817 civil ser­vice jobs are be­ing of­fered this year by cen­tral gov­ern­ment de­part­ments and sub­sidiaries. The most sought-af­ter job was a po­si­tion of­fered by the China Em­ploy­ment Train­ing Tech­ni­cal In­struc­tion Cen­ter in Bei­jing, and the sec­ond most sought-af­ter job was a po­si­tion of­fered by the re­gional earth­quake bureau in the In­ner Mon­go­lia au­ton­o­mous re­gion.

But 876 jobs did not have a sin­gle ap­pli­cant. They in­cluded be­com­ing a rail­way po­lice of­fi­cer in Shang­hai and Xi’an.

The ap­pli­ca­tion win­dow will close on Satur­day, and suc­cess­ful can­di­dates must pass the 2016 na­tional civil ser­vice exam, which starts on Nov 29, be­fore they’re granted a job in­ter­view in March.
