Giving a bribe to get a job

Q: I am jobless. My father wants to get me a job in a govt. institution by giving a bribe to someone and getting me in without any eligibily test. Is it halal for me to accept it? I am strongly against it as I think it will be haraam.

A: Try your best to refrain from any type of corruption.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
