Call center careers are on the rise all over the world, and why not? When you are offered higher pay for work with mostly similar skill set requirements as most office jobs, you would find it hard to turn down. And there are more perks to working in a Philippine call center other than a higher salary. Here are three major advantages.
Skill Development – Not only will your communication skills increase, as Outsource Consultants points out, but you will also have the chance to further your other proficiencies, such as listening abilities, analysis, a deeper sense of responsibility, and a stronger work ethic. And these are mostly general skills. Specific skill sets such as sales and technical proficiency can also be gained by working under these specific departments.
Career Opportunities – Upon entering the BPO industry, you will most likely be told about openings to further your career if you manage to achieve your goals and objectives as an agent. Most call centers in the Philippines prefer to promote rank and file for management positions more often than hiring externally. So if you consistently go beyond what is expected of you, you would most likely be promoted and in some cases, within only a year.
Continuous Need – The BPO industry in the Philippines is continuously expanding. Last year alone, call center companies have added more than 120,000 workers to their ranks and with above average pay grade too. Presently, the Philippine is now viewed as the BPO capital of the world, already outranking India in numbers and performance. With this kind of consistent growth, you can find ready jobs available with a very good chance of being hired within 24 hours of application.
So if you do believe that you have what it takes to work in a call center, then by all means do apply. You are not only contributing much to your betterment but you will also be partly responsible in expanding the country’s local economy and international reputation.
