Jobless Fresh Grad Hits Alma Mater due to Call Center Work Offer

A jobless fresh graduate of a 5 year course got disappointed with his Alma Mater for being referred in a call center.

It appears that the Facebook user laments that his University wants its graduates to become call center agents.

Check out his Facebook Post Below;

Early this morning I received a text message from a CALL CENTER COMPANY and offer me a job as data analyst, sadly they got my contact details from my own and beloved ALMA MATER.
Yes I am jobless right now but I am a 5 YEAR DEGREE HOLDER and this job referral is a mock to my face and to my profession!!(no offense to all my relatives and friends who are in the call center industry).
I am just very disappointed to my ALMA MATER by doing this!
How shameless are you by doing this to me and to all the alumni of our beloved University. Is this the dream that you offer to us when we first enter the door of our University? You want us to become CALL CENTER AGENTS? (again no offense)
It is tempting to all jobless graduates to grab this kind of opportunity but if you think that this referral help your graduates it’s a big NO! NO! Its better you didn’t do this!
This only show that our University dind’t care about the future of their Graduates but we are only good in PULICITY

As a call center employee, reading his post did not offend me at all, simply because the kid doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

I was upset because there are a lot of young “smart” people out there who would prefer to be jobless and rely on their parents than work in a call center. Sometimes, a high school graduate or a college undergraduate working in the BPO industry is way better than a college graduate who thinks that working in the BPO industry is a dead end job.

Below are the reactions from other netizens.

  1. He wasn't offered an agent position. He was offered a data analyst position which i assume likely akin to his course. It's a shame he has negative sentiments about the BPO industry and cannot see past the fact that it's not all about being an agent but there are other departments and other opportunities in a call center career. It's also sad that in his 5 years of college he never learned that Call Centers has helped in improving our economy and that the post offered might kick start his line of expertise. What a shame.

  2. Architecture graduate sya, so I understand where he's coming from. Sayang ang skills nya for the post being offered.

  3. There are BPOs that handle architecture and engineering firms, and yes, they handle things from the basics to the upper level work, here in the Philippines. Not all BPOs are call-related. Business Process Outsourcing means jobs that get sent to be done offshore from the main office, usually in another country where the company could be cost-effective vs hiring employees locally in their area which might mean more expense. This kid needs to wake up. He's no longer in school and needs to learn how the real world works before he hurts himself.

  4. Hiyang hiya naman ang accenture sayo.

  5. Tutal taga NU Ka naman daw simulan mo na mag design ng mga SM.

  6. Archi...pwede sana sa Graphics department...kaso sa attitude nya...wag nalang. Makapagmataas naman si kuya..taas ng pinag-aralan..higaan/upuan sa bahay lang naman kayang bagsakan.

  7. Wonderfull keep sharing Awesome post. Thank you for the valuable information.

  8. Hates the crowd in them. Hates the idea of working with them. Hates the fact a policeman earns a basic pay of 29K plus allowances he earns 50K a month, something a call center agents supervisor earns and not get shot at. Thinks call centers are like sardines factories where people stink and gossip while on aux. Like this right now. The alternative was you joining ISIS but became one instead.. in a call center.

    Where were you 5 years ago?
    Where do you think you will be 5 years from now?

    Why do this?

    If you answered pay for obligations like bills, feed the family, buy medicine for the loved ones... common.. we all know even at 35K its never enough. Maybe 60K is decent. Give the competitiveness argument to India they are cheap unless.. you are.

    Well... are you?

    Indian or cheap or both.

    The angry alumni matter did not deserve the dignity of a comment. Don't ask me why I bothered but your welcome. Drink your vendo machine dispensed coffee, rise and shine.. its 10 mins past the hour of midnight since you went on aux... aboard the Death Star.

    AUTO IN!

  9. I favor a variety of blogposts, My spouse and i really appreciated, I need specifics of the idea, considering that it's very amazing., Kind regards associated with providing. contact center

13th Month Pay Bonus Calculator

There are a lot of articles that have been published on how to compute the 13th month pay and I have read most of it however, I think it’s missing the actual calculator that can compute our estimated 13th month pay. The 13th month pay calculator that we have created would be beneficial especially for those employees who have been employed by the company for less than a year because, the amount of the 13th month pay will be pro-rated (will depend on the number of days or months of service). Based on DOLE’s Department Advisory  the number of days for leave without pay should be taken into consideration. Computation 1: If you have been employed by your company for more than a year use the computation below; Computation 2: Pro- Rated computation. If you have been employed by your company for less than a year use the computation below; Our Calculator has used the formula above to compute your estimated 13th month pay.  How to use the calculator: If you hav

Back Pay Computation in the Philippines and Reasons Why it’s Delayed. After taking calculated risks, you have finally decided to leave your current employer due to health reasons, lack of career growth, or a greener pasture, etc. Just like you, I always look forward in receiving my back pay because it can be used as savings or as an additional fund that you can utilize while transitioning to your new job. Computation of back pay may vary depending on your company polices however, the following items should be considered. 1.       Last Salary – your last salary may be withheld and will be release as back pay. 2.       Pro Rated 13th month pay. 3.       Tax Refund 4.       Vacation and Sick Leave conversion (if convertible to cash). 5.       Other deductions or liabilities – loans or lost equipment (Headset, locker keys, etc.) Illustration of Last Pay Slip for Back Pay Aside from your last pay the employer should also release your Certificate of Employment, BIR Form 2316 and a release waiver and quitclaim tha
