China has created a vacancy for the role of a receptionist in the central committee of the Chinese Democratic League and about 10,000 applicants are trying for the position.
The receptionist role, which has to do with office maintenance and continuous communication with their customers, is one of the most competitive positions in the 2017 Chinese Civil Servant’s Exam.
The exam, which has been scheduled, will start with an 11-day long political background check into the applicant’s profile before they can be allowed to sit for the exam next month.
According to the Chinese requirements for the position, the candidate must be between the ages of 18 and 35 with a college degree or higher before being allowed to sign up, with the exception of full time Masters or Doctoral students who can be as old as 40.
In similar terms, Nigeria is also plagued with the same challenges of unemployment, with thousands of people applying for a limited number of available jobs.
A typical example of the situation is the Nigerian Immigration recruitment tragedy, which occurred on Saturday, March 15, 2014.
It was gathered that about 6.5 million people in all the 36 states and the capital of Nigeria applied for 4,000 vacant positions in the service.
Recently, the National Bureau of Statistics reported that unemployment has risen from 12.1 percent in the first quarter of the year to 13.3 percent at the end of second quarter.
