KUWAIT CITY, May 20: About 35 percent of Kuwaiti citizens registered under the employment waiting list are not serious about finding jobs, especially considering the fact that many of them had refused positions in certain ministries quoting sources from the Civil Service Commission (CSC).
They explained that some of them refused jobs almost 27 times, which indicate that they are not serious about getting a job.
Majority of these people are above the age of 45 years. Some of them desire particular kinds of jobs in certain state institutions, and such desires are not easy to fulfill.
Meanwhile, Director of Selection at CSC Rateb Al- Uraifan revealed that 6,000 youths among the job applicants keep refusing the jobs that they are being offered.
He insisted that CSC aims to provide jobs to every youth but many refuse to be employed in certain ministries, affirming that the applicants have the right to refuse job offers but many times, their refusals are not justified.
