      ...gud day po!!! tnanks po sa info... but is there any other company that can be affiliated? i mean, i have a computer shop business, what if all the home based agents working on that specific company will rent my shop exclusively for business transactions, and lock-in for 6 months or a year? i experience that somewhere in ortigas, that they reserve seats exclusively for agents who rented the place... :)

      Hello Prof. A :) Yup, this call centre work at home is so strange but interesting. Great opportunities for moms and some people who can't go out for some reasons.

      Hi Cheeky! Yeah we always need serious dedication and hard work to be successful in anything. A virtual call center job is a nice alternative for those who can only work a little pressure I think. Stay home moms are really happy about such jobs. Thank you moi friend :)
