Do the people with corrupt mindset generally wish for a government job?

I had a glance of the article from one of the leading newspapers dated a couple of years back. It had stated that government job attracts corrupt youngsters like a magnet. I have frequently heard people saying, once I get the job the life will be set because the perks under the table are very much. Many highly studied graduate tend to apply for government jobs below their qualifications just to have some security plus cherries on the cake. They like the idea of not getting disbarred from the job in general and could enjoy some outer refreshments. The research done on this subject is really extensive, but the main point is highlighted about the prevailing mindset among many. Do comment.
