    BPO industry should be nothing more than a stepping stone to pursue what you really want to do in life.

  2. Sa mga taong maliit ang tingin sa BPO industry. Masasabi ko eh…

    Kung maliitin niyo ito, subukan niyo? Mag apply kayo, matangap ka kaya? Baka interview palang eh bagsak ka na. At kung sakaling matangap ka ng HR recruitment, makapasa ka kaya ng training? Baka di ka rin pumasa? At kung pumasa ka sa training, ma CERTIFY ka kaya at ma ipasa mo requirements ng international clients? At kung sakaling makapasa ka nga, tatagal ka ba? malamang di mo matapos ang kontrata mo at wala pang 6 months eh suko ka na.

    Wag maliitin at itong propesyon na ito ay isang magandang career na pwedeng pag sikapan. 1999 palang nasa BPO na ako. Oo I’m one of the pioneers at that time. Was able to buy a condo unit in Pasig, was able to buy 2 cars, was able to start a small business (food cart). I married my wife in which is my colleague, yes, she also works in the same company. We ave a family now with 1 kid. Eats 4 times a day, have more than any material stuff we can buy and have our son study in a private school.

    Not to shabby eh?
