In terms of status of employment, 3,154 or 49.79% of the collective number of passers were unemployed – 2,241 passers or almost half (47.87%) in the Professional level, and 913 passers or more than half (55.23%) in the Sub-professional level. There were 1,702 passers who came from the private sector and 1,103 from the government.

Those self-employed have a combined count of 200. Data further show that bulk of the passers at 4,730 or 74.68% indicated entrance to government as their main reason for taking the career service examination. Lines of work highly considered by majority of the passers include human resource; social science and welfare service; general administrative services; financial service; math, physical and biological science service; and tourism and industry service.

The CSC said that Professional and Sub-professional eligibles may be appointed to appropriate positions in the government that are not covered by Bar, board and special laws, provided they also meet the education, experience and training requirements of the position desired. The CSC again administered the Career Service Professional and Sub-professional written examinations to 95,393 registered examinees on April 25, the first examination scheduled for the year. The second and last round of Career Service written examinations will be held October 17, 2010. Applications are now being accepted at CSC Regional and Field Offices nationwide.
