The huge throng of people logging onto the website of the Ministry of Personnel jammed the site for seven hours yesterday, the Beijing Times reported.
Yesterday was the day that the results of the country's 2006 government recruitment exams were posted on the site. Examinees nationwide rushed online to check their test results and struck the site starting from 9 am.
The sought-after page was inoperable until 4.30 pm when the Webmaster responded by broadening the site's bandwidth, according to the site's work staff.
It was the huge number of simultaneous clicks that caused the problem, they explained.
Over 360,000 people across the nation sat the exams last month in competition for 10,282 government posts, according to the ministry.
