However, the hot phenomenon of Chinese civil service examinations reflects in some degree the great temptation of this career on the public which is inconsistent with the development of citizen society in China. This temptation on one hand may be convenient for the government to enroll talents and help enhance development of civil servant team; on the other hand, it can also cause unhealthy views on careers, inappropriate talents allocation mechanism, waste of talent resources, and therefore influences the benign development of society.
