Good morning everyone and welcome to a new day, it shall be a fruitful one for us.
Welcome to today's article which is all about the ongoing Oyo State Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM) recruitment. It is going to focus on winning strategies qualified applicants Must Use if they want to be successfully selected by the commission for the job.
The Oyo State Government through the Teaching Service Commission earlier during the year approved the Recruitment of teachers into the State Teaching service, a welcome development to the indigenes of Oyo state.
During the month of February, Interested and qualified applicants were invited to submit application at different TESCOM offices with the state which was coordinated in different zonal offices within the state.
Meanwhile, due to the outbreak of COVID-19 the recruitment process was stopped and applicants were given hope that once the COVID-19 pandemic had been properly handled by the government then the recruitment process will start.
However, Oyo state Government led by Governor Seyi Makinde through the Teaching Service Commission had directed that all Candidate who submitted their application at different TESCOM zonal offices are to update their records.
The site which was supposed to open on Monday 13 July, 2020 could not function due to some technical issue which is being handled since then.
As regards the technical issue, the TESCOM released a statement on Tuesday 14th July, 2020 stating that the portal will be opened this morning for interested applicants to submit their details.
The portal was opened yesterday and the new date for the commencement of the registration is now between Thursday July 16, 2020 to Wednesday July 22, 2020 for further processing of applications.
The reason why TESCOM Announced that applicants should log in to upload their data is so that the process of recruitment can be easily done online.
The rate of unemployment in Nigeria is high so It should be known that thousands of people are going to apply for this same job you are applying for and you begin to ask yourself how you can emerge as one the suitable candidates to be chosen.
Information gathered by CityPost is that the exercise is for those who have obtained and submitted application forms at zonal offices before the recruitment exercise was put on hold due to COVID-19 Pandemic.
Many people have started trooping into the recruitment portal after it was opened but many had made some mistake which might make them slip down the pecking order.
In this article, we are going to be looking at some winning strategies applicants can use in order to increase their chances of being recruited.
Oyo TESCOM Job: Before You Can Be Successfully Selected and Recruited, Here Are 6 Winning Strategies You Must Use.
Please, do not rush, endeavour to read this article from A to Z so as to get the important points listed in the article.
1. Use Your Valid Mobile Number
Applicants who have earlier submitted at the TESCOM offices before the pandemic broke out are the ones eligible to have access to the portal for upload and submission of their credentials.
At the point of creating an account on the portal, supply the same number you wrote on your brown folder when you wanted to submit back then at different TESCOM offices in Oyo state. After supplying the number, the portal will automatically recognise your name and will ask you to proceed.
If the number you are supplying is incorrect then you will not be able to go past that stage and this has reduced your chances of registering and being successfully recruited.
1. Use Sharp Scanned Documents During Registration.
In this century documents are important aspect one should not forget to take serious. Some people have missed out of so many opportunities due to some form of negligence and lackadaisical attitudes.
When applying or registering for something online, it is imperative to note that documents to be supplied has to be in good shape and must be clear enough to be seen.
If you don't have enough cash, kindly borrow from someone and go to an experienced printing shop to get your documents scanned in order to have a successful registration and increase your chances of being selected.
Documents needed are Your NCE, ND, Or Degree certificate as the case may be, your means of Identification (NIN, Voters card or international Passport), NYSC discharge Certificate, Your Local Government of origin Certificate, Secondary school leaving certificate (SSCE)
Blurry or badly submitted documents will not be considered.
2. Choose Your Local Government Of Origin.
The TESCOM recruitment will be spread round the 33 local government areas in Oyo state.
Many people have gone ahead to register using the local government area of where they stay rather than their local government of origin.
If you want to be successfully considered for recruitment, make sure you provide the details of your own local government of origin.
An applicant who hails from Saki East Local Government might be of advantage than someone who hails from Ibadan South west due to population of educated people in that area as well as the number of applicants from that local government.
3. Apply For A Category You Best Fit Into (Teaching Or Non Teaching)
The TESCOM 2020 recruitment has two categories which are Teaching and Non Teaching cadre.
In the Teaching cadre, it was said that people with NCE, B.Sc, B.Ed, B.A, HND are the ones eligible to apply for that position.
Also, different subjects like Mathematics, Agricultural science, Biology, English, Yoruba, Physics, Chemistry, Economics, Geography and lots more are subjects applicants in this category can apply to teach.
So if you studied something related to Chemistry in the Higher institution of learning then you have to apply as a teacher in chemistry under the TESCOM recruitment and not as an Agricultural Science Teacher.
Many people will decide to apply to teach another subject probably because they have an idea in it but trust me if you do so you are limiting your chances of getting the job.
Also, for those applying for Non teaching cadre, TESCOM released the list of requirement for this category. Make sure you satisfy all the requirement and also provide the evidence as you upload your credentials on the Oyo state job portal.
4. Upload Genuine And Original Documents.
This is Nigeria and people are funny in their way of doing things.
Let it be known that this present government in oyo state does not condone any act of malpractice or impersonation at all so if you want to increase your own chances of being selected for this job then it is better you upload a genuine result.
Documents to be uploaded Includes Primary school certificate/Testimonial, O'Level result certificate, Degree/ HND/ NCE Result, NYSC Discharge/Exemption Certificate, Local Government of Origin Certificate, Birth Certificate/Affidavit, Evidence of change of name (if applicable).
Make sure that all your educational certificates are genuine in order to increase your chances of being selected.
5. Complete Upload of O'level Result.
Many people have not been able to access this vital information which is crucial to their application. There are some applicants who used two O' level result (Combined Result) but will only go ahead to upload one out of the two.
Before you can be considered to be selected, your O'level result must be complete with pass in English and Mathematics.
Do well to upload your O'level results if you didn't make your paper at one sitting because this is one of the winning strategies that might increase the likelihood of you getting selected for the job
6. Use A Reliable Working Internet Connection.
Whenever you want to start the task on the portal, endeavour to use a reliable Internet connection. Many have fallen victim of bad connection and this had stopped them from achieving their aim.
To successfully register and increase your chances of winning, a wired connection is more reliable so that there won't be some hitch when registering online.
Incomplete registration or submission of documents caused by poor connection will automatically place you on disqualification because all the requirements has to be submitted completely.
Get a very good internet connection and increase your chances of being selected.
Conclusively, while registering, endeavour to avoid all form of error that might come your way.
After completing all categories, kindly go to the preview section and go through all what you have supplied to see if there is nothing missing.
