If you are thinking of working for the Administration, but do not decide, we tell you the pros and cons of being an opponent.
There are many people who are cheering in recent years have prepared some opposition, since, and after having been frozen for a while, the Government has made a great call public. However, it is important that you think about the pros and cons of becoming an opponent, since this process is usually very long and tedious.
Should I oppose?
The first thing we recommend you do is take a blank paper and start analyzing your personal, work and family situation. He thinks that studying an opposition on many occasions is not compatible with work, so you will have to have an economical mattress. Then it will be time to evaluate the location, since if you get a place you will have to live in that city permanently. Are you willing to do it?
Most people decide to prepare an opposition to get a stable job, since today only officials have secured their position. That is why many young people (and not so young) begin to study tired of continually seeking work, being rejected by recruiters and not being able to make future plans because of their economic uncertainty. Of course, there are also those who oppose by vocation, since some jobs can only be performed after having passed one of these processes.
Surely you know a friend who has been opposing for years and still does not have the place. This panorama is sadly frequent in Spain, so it is important to be patient and persevering when embarking on this adventure. If you are not motivated, you give up the first change and you are not able to study under pressure, this may not be the best option.
Nor do we advise you to become an official if you have an entrepreneurial spirit and would like to be your own boss, since climbing in the hierarchy of the Administration is quite complicated. The officials have their salary secured every month, although they are usually one of the first groups to suffer the cuts, so do not believe that working for the Administration will make you rich.
I have already decided, what should I do?
If this is the first time you prepare an opposition, you probably need outside help. Throughout the national territory you can find countless preparation centers, which facilitate the agenda, answer your questions and enable you to face a court. Some of them even help you with the documentation to process, so you just have to devote yourself to the study. Of course, not everything is rosy, and these academies are usually quite expensive. Their prices can range between 50 and 200 euros a month, a fairly high amount if we take into account that many opponents stop working to devote them solely to getting the place.
It is also important that you know that approving an opposition does not guarantee you a fixed position in the Administration, since in most cases you will have to participate in a contest to have the position in ownership. Your obsession from the moment you decide to oppose will be to get points, which you can get with training or language titles, courses, experience, etc.
The salary of the official, although it is for “always”, is not too high, and sometimes the colleagues of the private company charge better. However, these professionals will be able to improve their salary with experience, since officials usually charge extraordinary payments and supplements (destination, specific and productivity).
How to find out the calls for oppositions?
All oppositions that are convened in Spain must be previously published in an Official Gazette, whether at the national, regional or provincial level. Appeals for local posts must also be made public in the spaces authorized by the City Council. In addition, the Internet is a fantastic source of information. All you have to do is know how to search.
And, of course, it is essential that you know from the outset the degree of official you can or want to opt for:
Group A: Candidates must have a university degree as a graduate, graduate or graduate. This category is subdivided into A1 and A2.
Group B: require a certificate of Higher Technician.
Group C: officials of sub-category C1 need to be in possession of a baccalaureate degree, while candidates of subgroup C2 are only required to graduate from ESO.
