Civil service jobs for Expo workers

FORMER workers and demobbed female soldiers who served the World Expo 2010 are to get civil service jobs without having to sit entrance exams, employment officials said yesterday.

When the six-month event ended on October 31, a large number of staff had to find new jobs in an already crowded market.

Zhou Haiyang, director of the Shanghai Human Resources and Social Security Bureau, announced yesterday that some ex-employees at the world fair and women who left the army at the end of last year will be offered jobs in government departments.

And they will not have to take the annual civil service exam, which last year attracted nearly 60,000 people competing for 3,416 positions in Shanghai.

Female soldiers were recruited from local universities to serve at the Expo.

In a wider move to help nearly 20,000 Expo workers and volunteers find new posts, the city has been organizing job fairs and setting up special channels to collect resumes and recommend candidates to employers.
