Mil­lions ap­ply for civil ser­vice jobs

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

About 2.115 mil­lion peo­ple have ap­plied for this year's na­tional civil ser­vice, sur­pass­ing last year’s 1.998 mil­lion.

Ap­pli­cants showed spe­cial en­thu­si­asm for cer­tain job va­can­cies and tepid in­ter­est in oth­ers among the more than 27,000 gov­ern­ment posts avail­able.

A va­cancy at the Cen­tral Com­mit­tee of the China Demo­cratic League's re­cep­tion of­fice at­tracted a record-break­ing 9,837 qual­i­fied ap­pli­cants, be­com­ing the most com­pet­i­tive job this year.

The State Ad­min­is­tra­tion of Tax­a­tion’s na­tion­wide branches are the most de­sir­able em­ployer for ap­pli­cants. The sys­tem plans to re­cruit 17,476 peo­ple for 9,455 va­can­cies this year, ac­count­ing for 64.58 per­cent of all re­cruit­ments.

In sharp con­trast, 223 va­can­cies saw no one ap­ply. Me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal de­part­ments strug­gle to at­tract peo­ple, with most of their va­can­cies in re­mote and less de­vel­oped ar­eas.
