I have a friend who now a call center agent.Recently, we bump into each other and we had talk about different things. After a short while, she encouraged me to apply in their company as a call center agent. Considering the long hours of work and the responsibilities of being a teacher I got curious and thought if it is worthy to give up my teaching career and work there.

It is not worthy to give up the teaching to work in as a Call Center employee. The main reason is the night shift as it will affect the health. It is better to work in the day shift even if you're getting low Salary compared to the Call Center. As I know the teaching job is boring, you may try any another Job.

Hello there. I am a nurse by profession. I got in on the call center bandwagon because nurses have low paying jobs here in the Philippines, like 7000 a month. For a while it was fun because I earn 2x the salary than the one that I had in Nursing, and aside from that, I met a lot of cool people in the call center. But the only problem is the breaks and the schedule. Some would be asked to go to work at three in the morning, or 1 in the morning. And most of all, when I reexamined myself, I realized that this is not my life's passion. My heart longs to be a teacher of Nursing. So I resigned from it, and currently, I am in grad school taking my Masters degree. I feel happy with my choice but I don't disavow the fact that the call center in a way has improved my English, my outlook and my understanding of another person's culture. Bottomline, you should do what you love to do that way you won't consider work a chore. After all, there's no such thing as an easy job

They are very different jobs. I have actually done both, and prefer teaching. That being said, everyone is different. You will never know if you don't try and in the end, you just have to go with what you love doing.
