Job-seekers from China results in Tibetan graduates loosing out on jobs

DHARAMSHALA, Feb. 25: The overwhelming competition in the government job sector in occupied Tibet due to increasing number of Han-Chinese job-seekers and preference given to Chinese applicants, Tibetan graduates aspiring for civil service are loosing out on opportunities to employment in their native land.

A report by Radio Free Asia dated February 22 pointed to “Han Chinese flooding job markets and civil service exams slanted more and more toward Han applicants” resulting in Tibetan youths becoming unemployed.

An anonymous source cited by RFA said, “In 2018, there were 40,000 applicants in the Tibet Autonomous Region alone who sat for the entrance exam for positions in the Chinese civil service. However, only about 3,000 passed their exams to become eligible to be considered for government positions.”

The same source also said that majority of graduates from Tibetan universities were left unemployed.

A Tibetan living in the Yulshul Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Qinghai province told RFA that between 20,000 and 30,000 Tibetan and Chinese university graduates sat for civil service exams in the prefecture in 2018 in addition to applicants from other areas in Qinghai.

“Entry level government jobs pay from 6,000 to 7,000 yuan (U.S. $893 to $1,042) per month, and the number of applicants has increased over the years, with the number of Chinese applicants now astronomically high,” the source said.

Tibetan applicants also stand disadvantaged due to testing system that are heavily reliant on Mandarin Chinese and preference given to Chinese applicants in regards to dominance of Chinese culture in the government sector.

The Tibetan graduates are finding it very difficult to get jobs in the private sector including high-tech firms and other industries, making government sector jobs the main priority for them.
