Blogger slammed for 'insulting' remarks vs call center agents

A blogger has been slammed for ranting against his alma mater and posting remarks that call center agents found insensitive and insulting.

Facebook user Erickson Ignacio Marcos posted the following on Tuesday, August 18:

Early this morning I recieved a text message from a CALL CENTER COMPANY and offer me a job as data analyst, sadly they got my contact details from my own and beloved ALMA MATER

Yes I am jobless right now but I am a 5 YEAR DEGREE HOLDER and this job referal is a mock to my face and to my profession!! (no offense to all my relatives and friends who are in the call center industry)

I am just very disappointed to my ALMA MATER by doing this!

How shameless are you by doing this to me and to all the alumni of our beloved University. Is this the dream that you offer to us when we first enter the door of our University? You want us to become CALL CENTER AGENTS? (again no offense)

It is tempting to all jobless graduates to grab this kind of opportunity but if you think that this referal help your graduates its a big NO! NO! its better you didn't do this! This only show that our University didnd't care about the future of their Graduates but we are only good in PULICITY

Here are screenshots of his post:

As of 3:45 p.m. today, the post has 39 likes, 72 shares and over 300 comments, most of which are from call center agents and individuals working in the business process outsourcing (BPO) industry.

Some blogs identified Marcos as a National University (NU) graduate.

A few netizens questioned the authenticity of the account as the page was created only recently and contains two photos. "Must be a bogus profile created para maging controversial," a certain Grace Baban posted.

Marcos has not removed his rant despite receiving a barrage of negative comments from bashers.

NU has yet to give a word on the allegation.
