The junta has advertised around 4,000 job openings in less than six weeks since the beginning of October—a sign that the mass strike by civil servants has had a huge impact and that the regime is still struggling to run its administrative mechanism including education and healthcare services. More than 3,000 job vacancies were advertised in junta-controlled newspapers in October and 900 more were listed into the second week of November. Ministries that are recruiting include Science and Technology; Labor; Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation; Home Affairs; and Planning and Finance. Others included the Health, Education and Rail Transport ministries, whose employees came out on strike in the aftermath of the coup and joined en masse the Civil Disobedience Movement (CDM). More than 500 vacancies were advertised for the Health Ministry alone. The job ads list education requirements ranging from primary education to university degree, according to The Irrawaddy.
