近年来，中国社会一个热门的话题就是国考(the National Civil Service Examination)-公务员热(civilservant craze)。当年用来形容髙考的“千军万马过独木桥”，如今同样可以用来形容公务员考试，甚至与考大学、考研、留学热相比，考公务员热度更甚。原因之一就是公务员的职业稳定性优于其他各行业，有 “铁饭碗(ironbowl)”之称。另外，国家也为公务员建立了完善的保障制度，这使得公务员具有比其他行业更优越的待遇。工作稳定与福利保障使公务员成为许多年轻人梦寐以求的职业。

Honesty is to be sincere and upright,and match one's words with his/her action.Being trustworthy is to keep one's word and not to be false and deceitful.Confucius taught his disciples to be honest.In study,if you know a thing,say you know it;if you don't,say you don't.He thought it was the correct attitude towards study.In ancient times,the doors of Chinese shops had on it an inscription“genuine goods at a fair price for all customers.”This shows that since old times China has advocated the ethics of fair trade,honesty towards customers,no deception and no falsification.In modern China,the virtue of being honest and trustworthy has been carried forward.It is to be single-minded and responsible at work and in learning,and it is to be honest to friends and one should practice what he/she says.
