Several ways to apply for public-sector jobs

We thank Mr David Kwok Ng Kan for his feedback ("Internet job applications not elder-friendly"; Monday).

The Careers@Gov portal offers a convenient way for candidates to apply for public-sector jobs through the Internet.

An applicant applying for multiple vacancies within the portal needs to fill in the form only once.

The portal also serves as a depository so that applicants can update their career history and other information at any time.

That said, candidates also have the option of applying for public-sector jobs via e-mail and by post. So, there are several ways for applicants to submit their applications.
