'Previously many job seekers, used unethical ways to get jobs, evading competitions, but that trend has drastically changed due to the systematic development and practice of ethics and values, among the new generation'

Speakers at a program have said more talented, capable and skilled graduates are choosing government jobs, at a reception program for 36-37 Bangladesh Cadre Services (BCS) officials, by ODITI Limited.

For this they have to go through extensive work to prove themselves in the competitions which have also upgraded their quality of service and responsibility.

Speakers on Friday said, previously many job seekers, used unethical ways to get jobs, evading competitions, but that trend has drastically changed due to the systematic development and practice of ethics and values, among the new generation.

Around 100 BCS cadres were accorded reception at the program, held at National Museum auditorium.

ODITI Limited’s Managing Director Abdul Latif presided over the program. He suggested the prospective job seekers should effectively utilize their time after graduation and post graduation to get the desired job.

Comilla University Vice Chancellor Dr Emran Kabir Chowdhury attended the program as chief guest.

Mentioning the quality level and wisdom of government officials, he said: “The BCS cadres are filtered brilliants in the country.”

About the time consuming process of selecting BCS cadres, Dr Emran, also a former member of Bangladesh Public Service Commission (BPCS) said: “The final selection stage of the BCS exam is fully manual but transparent. So it takes time to announce the gadget order. We have tried to make it digitalized but it could not be possible due to the system.”

Zakir Hossain, additional commissioner of Customs, Excise and VAT Commissionerate in Dhaka (South) Customs House under National Board of Revenue (NBR), said:  “The increase in competition in the job sector is a good sign for job providers, as they can select the deserving candidate for the selected post.”
