Hi everyone,

As it was stated on the contract, we are required to stay and work for the country (pinas) based on the number of years that we had enjoyed the scholarship.

In my case, I graduated with a major of COmputer Technology at a University in Dumaguete. I was with the scholarship for 3 years and so I had to stay and work here in the Philippines for 3 years as well, correct?

Right after graduation, or that was even before graduation, I was already working at a BPO here in Cebu that handles Technical Support for all DELL portable and desktop systems. I'd say it's pretty technical and is 100% in line with the course that DOST helped me to achieve.

Here's my question. Is working for Call Centers valid for the work bond? I mean, this is still working within the premises of the country and by the way, eTelecare is a Philippine based call center primarily owned by the Ayala Groups of Corporation. Although I cannot deny the fact that our clients are based overseas, so that leaves me thinking if DOST would honor this job as something that is gonna pay back their support when we were still in college.

Hope the members of this site would be able to contribute their ideas or opinion about the matter.

Thanks,

Hi!
Yes, it is!
I even have a friend who worked as a travel specialist in a BPO also and already got her clearance.
