KUALA LUMPUR – The Public Service Commission (PSC) received 1.56 million applications last year to fill 25,046 job vacancies in the public sector.
Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Datuk Joseph Entulu Belaun said to ensure that only quality candidates were selected, each application received would go through a rigorous screening process.
“PSC receives a lot of applications each year from candidates who want to serve the government but permanent job opportunities available each year are so limited.
“In 2015, the PSC received 1.63 million applications but the vacancies available were only 24,606,” he said during a question-and-answer session in the Dewan Rakyat today.
Entulu said the high number of applications each year made it easier for PSC to make selections to fill the vacancies. – BERNAMA
