Abstract: Public service jobs have been attractive and competitive to Chinese university students compared to private sector jobs. It is puzzling, in that China's civil service system suffers from many problems including the rampant corruption, brain drain problems, and the public's low trust in the government. Why do university students till want to work for government? This thesis adopts the public service motivation (PSM) theory to investigate and compare the public and private sector job seekers' motivations toward their future careers. The influences of a series of variables on the students' future career selections, such as major and family background, are also examined in this research.
