Taipei, Feb. 28 (CNA) Software engineer has become the top-ranked dream job in Taiwan this year among those seeking to change jobs after the Lunar New Year holiday, replacing “civil servant” in past years, according to an online analysis by the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA).
Being a civil servant has long been seen as a secure job with a stable income, but the relatively high benefits for public servants have drawn public criticism more recently, limiting interest in pursuing a government job, a report on the analysis said.
The analysis was aimed at identifying the 10 most-wanted jobs among Internet users seeking to change jobs after receiving their year-end bonus and relaxing during their Lunar New Year holiday, which fell from Feb. 6 to 14 this year. [FULL STORY]
