On the 2nd, Gyeonggi-do appointed Ryu Mi-sook as a new 7th grade administrative employee to the Employment Equality and Career Break Women Support Team of Gyeonggi-do Northern Office in Uijeongbu.
He is the oldest among the 47 civil servants newly appointed by Gyeonggi-do on this day (grades 7 and 9, research positions, and professional career officers). Born in 1967, she is 56 years old. She is a newcomer, but according to the regulations, she must retire after 4 years (June 2027).
On the 9th, in an interview with Maeil Business News, Mr. Ryu said, “I didn’t want to live the rest of my life unemployed in the so-called 100-year-old age토토사이트, but there weren’t many jobs that women in their 50s could apply for.” “I decided that the most rewarding job I could choose was a civil servant,” he explained.
Mr. Liu has a colorful history. Her first job is as a teacher. She graduated from the Department of English Education at the University of Education and taught English at public middle and high schools from 1988 to 2002. She then quit her job to take care of her sick daughter.
He was already in his 50s when he recalled her return to society as her children recovered their health and entered college. Mr. Ryu prepared for the Gyeonggi-do 9th grade civil service exam, which anyone over the age of 18 can apply for. In 2017 she passed and she worked at the Gyeonggi Provincial Office until 2018.
Mr. Ryu’s challenge does not end here. While serving as a civil servant in Gyeonggi-do, she also challenged and passed the 7th grade civil service exam in Seoul.
From 2019 to 2021 she worked at Seoul City Hall. However, it was not easy for her to take care of her family, commuting from Uijeongbu to Seoul City Hall every day. Mr. Ryu prepared for the Gyeonggi-do level 7 civil service exam again and was assigned to the Northern Gyeonggi-do government office close to his home.
Mr. Ryu said, “I prepared for the exam at home with the exam textbook, and I took online lectures for the difficult part.” There was no,” he said.
Mr. Ryu, who became a civil servant late in his mid-50s, has his bureau chief, section manager, and team leader all younger than himself. Mr. Ryu said, “As a new civil servant, I think that rank should be given priority in the workplace.”
“A public servant is a job that involves more important things than pay,” he said. “As a public official, I will do my best every day as this is my last chance to do something valuable to society.”
Coincidentally, as his first job, Mr. Ryu was in charge of supporting middle-aged women’s employment and operating the new job center entrusted to the Gyeonggi-do Job Foundation.
Ms. Ryu said, “I thought it was my destiny to be given this kind of job after a career break,” and said, “Based on my experience, I will support women in Gyeonggi-do who have had a career break to build economic power and achieve self-realization.” As Mr. Ryu, who also has a career break experience in Gyeonggi-do, works in the career break women support team, she expects to be of great help to women who have had a career break in the province.
