Angie Alesco – From Juggling Two Jobs to Working Full Time in the BPO Industry

In this podcast, Derek is joined by Angie Alesco, a BPO worker who shared her story of grit, energy, and commitment.  Angie’s story is common here in the Philippines and she symbolizes the energy of the Filipino people.

 

Summary

  • Angie shares that she is the sole provider for her family which includes her parents, three children, and a niece.
  • She juggled two jobs just to provide for her family and put her three children through school.
  • After working as a government employee and a nurse, she then ventured into the BPO industry after her friends told her about outsourcing opportunities and benefits.
  • Working now in the BPO industry, Angie shares that she is earning more now and has a lot more rest compared to when she was still working two jobs at the same time.
  • She shares that she has more peace of mind working in the BPO space because she and her family are covered by health insurance.

 

Key Points

  • Angie’s story of juggling two works at the same time to provide for the family is common among Filipinos.
  • Working in the BPO space has more benefits for their employees such as higher salary, paid vacations in a year, and health insurance for the employee and the family.
  • A mother’s love is unconditional.
  • Outsourcing opportunities are taking the Philippines by storm, but its growth is stunted by lack of awareness of Filipinos and slow internet service in the country.
