Call Center Exodus and the Rise of Online Freelance Work

I've worked in the call center for over four years until I finally turned to full time online freelance work. While the world hasn't changed much for me during my four years of stay in the call center, I am most grateful that I've worked in the BPO industry because the trainings, most especially the sales and customer service trainings played a big role in my freelance career now.

Freelance Tip Be An Expert

Freelance Tip #2: Be an Expert

If you're working as a freelancer, think of yourself as a doctor. You are someone who provides a solution, a recommendation, or a prescription. But there are a lot of doctors. You can either be a general practitioner or you can be a specialist.

On some occasions, I'd go to an Internet café near our boarding house just to submit my articles and communicate with client. During my early days with doing online jobs, my first few...

She bought an old typewriter and a bunch of lessons on typing. Then she would start working through her lesson, pressing through the rugged keys on the typewriter. It clacked and cracked on afternoons and evenings while I look on her and see her just have her eyes on the copy while her fingers find their way to the different keys on the keyboard. I...
