Life of Call Center Representatives


Jobs in the Philippines take a big leap upon the flourish of new careers that provide Filipinos attractive compensation. The trend is really going up because of these newly-launched industries, all thanks to western investors, and yes, the internet. If i can remember it correctly, Filipinos (that's how we call ourselves) will just settle for the typical clerical jobs or be in the food industry. Now, with the advancement of technology, a lot of careers were introduced to the country.

One of the most common sought after jobs is being in a CALL CENTER or CONTACT CENTER. In the last four years, this type of industry has been rampant, having numerous contact centers that were launched all across the Philippines. This is where people from western countries outsource off-shore to hire people who will work for them. That's the nature of my job by the way. CUSTOMER SERVICE is more of a layman's term. Americans, Brits or even Aussies chose to hire people out of their countries since labor cost here is really competitive. Cost cutting, as we call it. How does it work? It's either you're an INBOUND representative which mostly just do plain customer service or technical support, or an OUTBOUND representative- who does all the dirt calling houses selling insurance, websites, saying you won a lottery or what have you. Other's find it really easy of earning money, but to tell you honestly, it's as tedious as working as a secretary. You have to be shouted at by your customers, sometimes even cursing you to death, your body clock changes, and you have to work on wee hours since it's operating 24/7.  




Online Tutorial is like you are just chatting with your friends but giving useful info rather than talking about gossips


Another career to look for in this country is being an ONLINE TUTOR. These people are professional teachers who work as freelancers and have expertise on several subject matters like English, Math, Science, History, among others. Students having some challenges academically will seek help in guiding them with their performance in school. This pays well too since your student (Or let us say the STUDENT'S MOM) pays you on an hour to hour basis. You would only be required to work for a maximum of four hours everyday, sometimes, just thrice a week. Hence, you can work part time as an online tutor, and you can have a second job, or do the laundry in the afternoon. It's like you are chatting with your student and giving him additional info by sending some websites that your student could check on his end via internet, and explaining everything through the web.

Next on the line are the MEDICAL TRANSCRIPTIONISTS or MEDICAL TRANSCRIBERS. This goes to people who has wide knowledge on medical terminologies. When I say knowledge, I just don't mean parts of the human anatomy. I'm talking about medicines, physiology, different kinds of diseases and it's process. It's indeed one of the high-paying jobs in the country but also as challenging as the other careers ever thought possible. You have to be extra careful on transcribing accurately or you loose your job in seconds. You have to keep track of the transcriptions, you have to have a good grammar and should use proper punctuations, to be able to transcribe correctly. And by the way, these people also work for health-care facilities from another country, say the United States. You will undergo training but it will be an edge if you're already a know-how on the medical world. 




Being an ENGLISH TUTOR for KOREAN students is also one of the most looked-for jobs in Philippines. Koreans have a big population in the country for reasons I don't know (Well, don't have anything against them and I can't blame them if they want to stay here.). Unlike with ONLINE TUTORS, wherein you have a wide range of expertise that you can choose to teach, being a tutor for Koreans is just basically teaching them how to speak in English. Modesty aside, Filipinos are known to be proficient in English that's why this job really doesn't require extra effort. And to think that all you need to do is to teach what you say practically everytime you open your mouth. I must admit, it is kinda challenging still if you think about it, since you are teaching someone who barely speaks and understand the language. I didn't mean that they are hopeless case, it's just that koreans just know their language and just few English words so it's a long way to go. Most of Koreans seeking for an English tutor though just needs a little polishing with the language. And since you only work as a tutor for three to four hours, you can have another job and still go out and have fun with buddies. 

Are you a computer geek?Why not start a career as a web developer!


Another top-caliber job in the industry is being an IT DEVELOPER or a WEB DEVELOPER. Just from the term, you have to be damn good in computer. Not just basic stuff like creating a simple blog site or surfing the net, or creating a GOOGLE ADSENSE account. It's not even about chatting forever with friends nor adding several applications or widgets to your Facebook account. One needs to particularly be an expert on WORLD WIDE WEB (WWB) applications and numerous network applications, javascript, HTML, Internet protocols, etc. You have to know how to troubleshoot pc's and websites. You should even know how to hack your friend's pc. You should familiar to all the computer terminologies known by the any computer geek all across the earth. You will really earn here a fortune, but it can be a long way to go if you just started liking computers.

I'm very happy for all the work that you do, but I have one idea for the ones that do customer service. Please have everyone learn English. Sometimes it is so hard to understand what is being said. A lot of Americans get so upset because they can't understand what is being said to them, they just hang up and then they start talking bad about the company they were trying to contact in the first place.

Hi Meg!

Thanks for taking the time to read my hub. I understand where you're coming from because I work as a coach for a call center. Believe me honey, I know the language and accent barrier. But I'm not God and I don't have millions of dollars to have these people enroll to a communications school or something. But just remember that no matter how unperfect the grammar is, if you are determined enough to learn and to succeed, then you will learn and you will overcome your shortcoming. Nobody is perfect anyway, right? :-)
