    Re: Disadvantage of BPO sector? Is it possible to work in software filed after working in BPO?

    It depends upon you passion/interest for software fields/skill/language etc. There are internal job postings exam/interview for the internal switching of employees in case of IT+BPO companies like Infosys, HCL, IBM, Convergys etc.
    However as you are fresh graduate, i think you must wait for a direct software job as there might be arising of frustration, depression etc in the prior case.

    hi,
    as u told u have high academic then you can try for software directly instead BPO. its quite difficult to do a BPO job as you need to flex yourself with rotational shifts. if u start with BPO then to enter a software is quite difficult else you should have high reference and technically good.

    all the best

    If you go for BPO Sector then your income will not increase too much
    After leaving bpo you can go to other sectors as other sectors will provide you much more money with a great experience

    dear actually the only drawback of working in BPO is that its experience doesn't counts when you apply to a function specific jobs like in your case of software job......

    BPO experience will definitely counts when you are applying for customer support cell or client supporting network jobs in banks and some good placement agencies...

    but on the basis of BPO experience getting a software job is very difficult... it depends on your skills, dedication, learning capabilities,& knowledge of the core subject....

    Hi,
    As you said you have high score in academics then please dont get into BPO and if you are talking about Infosys Shifting you to Developer/Maintenance position after you join into their BPO then sorry to say dear its completely false, It will never make such shifts(exceptional cases possible only 0.1/100) However IBM Tech Support is something which can put you into SAP Networking module after 6-8 months of good work shown in your job(Tech support), they do make internal shifts unlike infosys... So in worst case scenario you can go for IBM Tech support work for few months with good commitment you will for sure get internal shifts(genuine) Not sure about wipro and HCL(never heard people having internal shifts to core IT Field from BPO in these firms) But i strongly suggest you to wait for Core Software jobs instead of working in BPO as you have got good Academic marks, dont spoil the beginning of your career with a BPO because after 1-2 years if you wish to move out of it because they arent making any internal shifts then you might face a bigger task to find Core IT jobs, Better wait now and make a good entry with a good profile rather than a BPO in Infosys... Hope i made sense...
    All the best

    Re: Disadvantage of BPO sector? Is it possible to work in software filed after working in BPO?

    dear friend

    you asked about the disadvantage of working in bpo sector dear as we know if the work which is giving you good salary and job satisfaction then there is no disadvantage of any job ,the main reason which goes against the bpo sector is this that the working hours are very heitic and in starting the salary is also not good

    you want to go for software company for your better future so you can go for it because you have enough computer degree so go for it and apply for the desire post in which you want to apply for this you have to be alert of notification and apply and then prepare for the entrance exam if you are fulfilling the criteria of govt. sector then you can apply for the govt. sectors also.

    all the best

    Re: Disadvantage of BPO sector? Is it possible to work in software filed after working in BPO?

    the main disadvantage is ,

    you shouldwork totally 8 hours with one hour gap between those eight hors as in a software comapny .

    You will have warnings in your job
    you must satisfy the customers , if you are in voice process .
    The salary will be less when compared to it industry. It is around 8000 to 14000 permonth .

    Night shiftings is also a great disadvantage .

    hi, there is no disadvantage to work in bpo sector as this sector is a good one for career. you can learn many things from this sector.
    yes, you can join IT field after bpo. you can join infosys, tech mahindra and HCL. even all the three companies always give a chance to their bpo emplyees to be a part of their IT projects through internal job posting process.

    Hey..Hello...to start with the salary in BPO is less plus the time period you will spend in BPO will not count as experience, the working hours could be day or night and the top of all there is no actaul growth in BPO sector and the job security is also missing....so if you are in dire financial need than go for BPO otherwise complete further studies or try in some other company..and the answer to your second question, YES you can apply for any software company while or after working in BPO but it will not count as work experience in your resume........

    HELLO FRIEND

    Since you have good academic record so i would like to suggest you to go for software job . The reason behind this is you can enjoy the job with your technical skill. Regarding move to software from bpo i feel it will be difficult to move. So i would personally suggest to wait and grab software opportunities as you have good academic record

    wish you all the best....................

    Re: Disadvantage of BPO sector? Is it possible to work in software filed after working in BPO?

    hello friend

    See it all depend on your interest toward the kind of job you are doing.Since you have not mention your area of interest its difficult to answer your question. But i would like to suggest you the following things

    1. If you are really interested in software job then i would like to suggest you to stay in the same company for 6 more month to complete 1 year and after 1 year of experience you can try in any software companies.

    2. Most of the software companies now a days give preference to experienced candidate so you will have maximum opportunities after 1 year of experience

    3. If you are interested to earn just money then you can move to this job because they are offering more money as compare to present company.

    so friend it all depend on you so hope so you will chose better option for you

    wish you all the best..............

    hello friend

    Yes you can go for software testing job

    since you have worked in life science industry as software validation analyst so it depend on recruiter whether they consider your experience in life science industries or not.If they consider its well and good and if they don't consider your experience then you can join the software companies but you have to work as fresher

    Also based on your graduate qualification you can also apply for the Goverment jobs

    Re: Disadvantage of BPO sector? Is it possible to work in software filed after working in BPO?

    The disadvantages purely depends on your passion for the job.....!

    Generally BPO is a good job with high package and job flexibility...!

    IT companies like TCS, CTS, Infosys, HCL, etc.... after working in their BPO's take you to their software concerns too....!

    So, now if you get a campus placement at Infosys BPO as you said, it is wiser to pick up the job....!
    If you feel satisfied in the due course you can continue and then go in for a software job with your experience.......

    Wishing u gud luck...!
    Regards,
    vjp......!

    Re: Disadvantage of BPO sector? Is it possible to work in software filed after working in BPO?

    Dear..

    First of all let me tell you about the Disadvantages of BPO sector :-

    Biggest drawback is that Experience will not get counted
    Less salaries
    Less growth
    Slow rate of Promotions
    Late night Working shifts
    Pressure job
    No future outside BPO

    If you want to go for Software job then you can join but let me tell you in well advance that even if you worked for Infosys BPO then also Infosys software will not count your experience and not even give you any relaxation in any of the recruitment process so its better to go as per your future plans, Demand of the course as well as your area of Interest.

    Hope it will help

    Cheers...!!!

    Hi friend
    Well jobs at BPOs depends on the interest of the persons .No comments on that but records says that not safe for girls as night shifts are there and we all have witnessed many mis happs thats all about BPO.And talking about working in software company you should have good knowledge about domain you want to work on like...Java,C#,.Net......etc.
    All the best..........

    Re: Disadvantage of BPO sector? Is it possible to work in software filed after working in BPO?

    Hi
    The main disadvantage of the BPO centres is the odd timing which one needs to follow while working in a BPO. Rest the job is well equipped with technology and growth, many people do it for the part time jobs but there are so many people these days who actually are in the profession of the work culture of BPO.
    Another disadvantage of the BPO is that the experience you gain by working in a BPO, will count only in the BPO sector jobs. You cannot include its experience in your software industry or the production industry. If you still going to include it as your work experience, then also it wont be considered

    Dear sir,
    As you have told you are a student with high academics, then please don't make any hurry, it will benefit you only. Wait for a chance to get a direct entry in software stream. But if you still want to join BPO, then it also OK, you may opt for it as there are internal switching of post also every now and then, in companies like infy. you just have to clear an internal exam and you would be given post as per your qualification.

    Re: Disadvantage of BPO sector? Is it possible to work in software filed after working in BPO?



    My dear friend.

    First of all i want to tell you the disadvantages of working in the BPO sector.

    The pay scale in the BPO sector is very small.

    Normally you will earn up to Rs.10000 per month.

    And the increments regarding the BPO jobs are very less.

    So, as you are pursuing B.E in the CSE field and you have mentioned that your academic qualification is good.

    So, i won't suggest you to go in the BPO field.

    Surely, you should go into the software field as it is a very growing area.

    You can find jobs in companies like:-

    --> Infosys

    --> TCS

    --> Wipro

    --> Satyam etc.


    Yeah you can also work in software companies after working in BPo but i won't recommend it.

    Rest it is your own choice.

    Thank You.

    Work experience as CSE will only be helpful in related jobs.
    If you are applying for jobs as customer service than that experience will be counted.
    But to apply to major jobs in operations or sales that work experience will not be counted.

    Even if you are applying for MBA than that experience will not be counted.
    But you can alway rise within the BPO sector also and grow towards higher positions within the BPO only
    You need to work hard

    Dear friend

    There is no disadvantage in BPO jobs only thing is depends on our mind
    because BPO is a part of IT industries software is also a part of IT industries
    In software a new and more technology will be updatesd and if you learn and develop your skills there
    your salary will be high and more over you have better future


    In Bpo not like that but here depends on talent you can earn more ..

    All the best..

    Dear Friend,
    There is no such disadvantages of BPO sector.

    But since you are having a good academic then i would suggest you to go for software companies.

    The pay scale of BPO is very low and the increments are also low.

    One more thing is that you need to be flexible with the time shifts.

    Since you are interested in the software field it will be difficult if you enter the BPO at first being a fresher.

    You should apply for the software companies.

    Even if they are not coming to your college for campusing then also many companies does off campus recruitment.
