Why do you think that some people choose Call Center Jobs. A friend of mne she was a graduate of Chemical Engineering adviced me to choose call center jobs in exchange to my present job. For her that is the only job she can offer that sure will make money. For you my friends, what do you think are the reason many people transfer to call center leaving their degree. If you are already inside a call center company, what benefits awaits the successful applicants?

I think one of the reasons why graduates choose to work in a call center company is because BPO companies don't have strict requirements when it comes to applicants. As long as they communicate well and not too sensitive about the time schedule, they accept them. Also, the compensation in call centers are above the average other entry-level jobs offer. I guess that's also one reason why many graduates are enticed to join call centers even if their degrees are not related to sales.

I have never been employed as a call center agent, actually I have only had one job and am grateful that I still have it right now even though it has been a tough year for our industry and our economy and many people have lost their jobs while others can't even get themselves employed in the first place. I do have friends who have been call center agents for a few years now. They say that the start of the career is challenging, but as you increase your expertise and you better your reputation, you actually do get compensated by climbing the organizational ladder - you get a better, less stressful post and a better paycheck :) Thanks for the response on my discussion :)

I agree with Moonchild, the compensation is the best-pulling factor for Call Centers. I know some people who were nurses and commerce graduates who were doing it because it pays more and they get to live in Makati--especially if they are not from Manila. Aside from that I don't know what else to say when it comes to long-term benefits and other stuff.
