The Star

SOME 2,000 job seekers thronged the Kuala Muda district health office on Monday, responding to a recruitment drive for six vacancies, reported Sin Chew Daily.

The vacant positions are for chef, driver, general worker, senior general worker, office assistant and medical assistant.

People started to queue up as early as 7am and soon occupied a whole corridor of the department.

The daily also reported that suitable candidates were being sought for more than 100,000 vacancies

at various government departments.

Public Service Department director-general Tan Sri Ismail Adam said many civil servants retired every year, and the vacancies had to be filled as some sectors in government departments had to maintain a certain number of employees.

He said that apart from facing a shortage of dentists and pharmacists, the Government also needed teachers as well as army and police personnel.
