In its recruitment efforts, Jilin province is gradually raising the proportion of civil servants with over two years of grassroots work experience in order to cope with a general lack thereof.
In 2010, it is expected that over 60 percent of all civil servants recruited by provincial and municipal government organs in Jilin will have over two years of grassroots work experience. According to the plan, Jilin's provincial organs will strive to hire all its civil servants in 2010 from candidates who have over two years of grassroots work experience except for certain special positions.
Meanwhile, Jilin is also encouraging and guiding college students to work in grassroots organizations, and county-level organs in Jilin are planning to hire over 50 percent of their civil servants from this year's graduates.
In addition, Jilin has also increased its recruitment among civil servants from outstanding first-line cadres. It is expected that 20 percent of all civil servants hired by town and community organs will be from outstanding village and community cadres, forming a benign mechanism where high-quality talents can gain experience and where higher organ civil servants from grassroots organs can be promoted.
