Always taking right decision in life is the best thing to do.
It is very sad how most of the teachers find themselves in awkward situations when they stay too long before securing a job in TSC.
There are some people who get employment immediately after graduation, others within a period of one year after graduation while others remain unemployed for up to five (5) years.
The chances of securing employment opportunities with TSC are mostly determined by the following factors;
*Length of stay after graduation
*Willingness to work in any part of the country
