Names written on paper put inside pasta to prevent rigging in draw organized by employment organization
BAYBURTThe Turkish Employment Organization (İŞKUR) has taken an unusual measure to prevent rigging in a draw set to give jobs to unemployed people by putting the names of candidates written on papers inside ring-shaped pasta.
The organization said some 2,700 people applied to the program, however only 500 of them will be given jobs.
Officials said they adopted this method as a measure to avoid rigging in the draw.
The 500 people will be given temporary jobs in public institutions in the eastern province of Bayburt for six months as a part of a program called “Working for the society’s benefit.”
The event took place in an indoor sports hall in Bayburt in the presence of a notary.
The incident went viral on social media.
The provincial director of İŞKUR, Abdullah Kahveci, released a statement about the draw, confirming a total of 2,700 people had applied to the program.
He said those selected from the draw will be able to start working as of March 17.
“We will start nine projects in municipalities, religious affairs directorate’s offices, provincial administrations, forest management offices and at the Bayburt University all over the province. The draw will be conducted only for the Gökçedere Municipality. The other municipalities can employ candidates without the draw,” he said.
