1.5 million applicants got registered, an indication that Chinese graduates are chasing more stable career than the high paid private sector jobs.
According to local media reports, the number of civil service aspirants in China is now 20 times more than what it used to be a decade ago. Like most bureaucracy around the word, the Chinese babus too face the same criticism: lack of dynamism and entrepreneurial spirit.
Interestingly, the Chinese do not prefer all administrative jobs. According to reports quoting Chinese state-owned news agency Xinhua, customs and taxation service is the most preferred job whereas very few want to join services like China Earthquake Administration.
