KUALA LUMPUR, April 3 (Bernama) -- The Public Service Commission (PSC) received more than 880,000 online applications for jobs in the public sector during the first two months of this year, its chairman Tan Sri Mahmood Adam said today.

He described it as an overwhelming response, especially among Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) school-leavers.

However, the availability of jobs would depend on vacancies in government departments and agencies," he told reporters after launching the S.P.A Outreach Seminar: Introduction of SPA and Public Service to Special Affairs Department (JASA)here today.

Commenting on the position of 50,000 contract personnel in the public service, he said they were appointed based on vacancies of posts in the public service.

On today's programme, Mahmood said a career carnival was also held to provide guidance and information on careers in the public sector.
