Would-be civil servant…

The parents of a young would-be civil servant who failed to secure a public sector job despite passing a 1998 hiring exam join in a protest yesterday outside the Interior Ministry building on Vassilissis Sofias Avenue, central Athens. Some 700 people who performed well on the 1998 exam but failed to land a state job have successfully challenged the results at the Council of State, Greece’s highest administrative court.
