, the figure was only 16 hopefuls competing for a post.
People stereotype civil servants, said Zhang Yan, a researcher with the Shaanxi Academy of Social Sciences.
"Most candidates are keen on the job for the good welfare and the 'power' it can bring about," said Zhang.
Since Xi Jinping took the helm of the CPC in November 2012, the Party has made a series of detailed regulations to uproot bureaucratic and extravagant work styles among government workers, such as requiring officials to travel with smaller entourages Vans Old Skool Shoes
, simplifying receptions and practicing frugality.
When Li Jia first took the job, her monthly salary was as low as 1,700 yuan (about 274 U.S. dollars). She has been affected by China's ongoing crackdown on officials' extra perks, dinner receptions and extravagance.
"The welfare system is not as good as before and my annual salary is rather low," Li said, adding that she has to live with other two people in a small room to save money.
"Fewer applicants this year means that more people treat this exam rationally Vans Old Skool
," said Wu Wenbin, an expert from Zhonggong. "It can give more opportunities to test takers who really want to work for the country and people."
Weng Simin, a senior student from Sun Yat-Sen University in Guangzhou, registered for the exam after deep consideration.
"I find it difficult to hunt for jobs in big companies as an archives management major. Government departments have a higher demand for this major, and I can apply my learning on the job," she said.
Zhang Yan said it is time to abandon the thought that being a civil servant is an easy job Old Skool Sale
, adding that the most important quality for the job is the willingness to serve the people.
Zhang believes that the civil servant "fever" will cool down and the "iron rice bowl" will be broken with reform of the administrative system. "Actually, the change has already started."
In order to improve herself and seek new opportunities, Li Jia is pursuing postgraduate study at Tsinghua University while working.
"The civil service examination is just the first step to enter the system. In the long term, you have to be fully prepared to take on lots of responsibilities as a qualified civil servant," Li added.

SYDNEY: Australia is poised to help China seize assets from corrupt officials and assist Beijing in extraditing economic fugitives, a report said on Tuesday.
Corruption has caused widespread public anger in China, and President Xi Jinping has vowed to root out crooked officials ranging from high-ranking "tigers" to low-level "flies".

, the manager of the Australian Federal Police's operations in Asia, said authorities were ready to seize assets of corrupt officials within weeks, in an unprecedented joint operation with their Chinese counterparts.
He told the Sydney Morning Herald that both sides had agreed on a priority list of alleged economic fugitives who have taken residence in Australia. Among them are naturalised Australian citizens and permanent residents who for years have laundered money under the guise of being genuine investment or business migrants from China, according to a report published in the newspaper on Tuesday.
