Becoming wise

I have been working in the BPO industry for the last 3 yrs or so. The general trend I have seen with BPO crowd is they like to party, go to pubs/ discs, or to places like Manori/Gorai/ Madh etc and again party hard. With BPOs providing the option of financial freedom (that too a good amount) for kids just out of college its obvious that these young bubbly BPO crowd like to do things they could not do with their measly pocket money or allowances given to them by their family.
Ask any BPO guy about their plans for the weekend and its pretty much the same - party, meet gf/bf, go out with gf/bf, movies, malls, go to drink etc. But today things are changing; there is a small group of population who is breaking the monotonous Ways to spend their weekend. One of the hot favorites of the crowd esp BPO couples are Dance classes. Couples that its more quality time spent while they try to get a step of two with their duck feet plus its always cool to flaunt those cool moves the next time they hit the dance floor at the disc or at a party. Even singles feel that a little cha cha cha really helps them unwind after a hectic monotonous week at call center between cold calls, meeting targets and. providing customer service to irate customers.

I think finally the BPO crowd is slowly but steadily becoming wise. They are no more the kids who are looking out to just to make a quick buck till the time they actually want to decide what stream they want to do their Masters Degree. Even the BPO industry was considered to be like bubbles, which was expected to burst after sometime. But companies like 3G, J P Morgan, Accenture and IBM has proved that this is a serious business and they need mature and serious people who take the BPO job as seriously as any other full time career. As the industry matures the people in the industry too a maturing.

It's a good post, it all depends on how people want to live their life. They by their decisions bring value to their existence.

The only other point I have is, if the dollar falls a bit too much the BPO industry might be in a tough spot.

Your right about the BPO buck being spent more on constructive activites nowdays. But the scary fact always remains, that too much money too soon, is sure to bend the mind someway and most of the time, its towards instant gratification.Also the quick burn out of the BPO employees, has made the younger generation sit up and take notic.
