Posted by admin on August 9, 2010

One of the most significant cultural tsunamis of recent memory is the proliferation of the call centers all over the country.  A decade ago, nobody even knew what a call center was.  Now, a major chunk of the newly-graduated youth find employment within the walls of the new mecca for fresh grads, the call center.  Everyone knows someone who works for a call center.  The whole phenomenon has its highs and lows, don’t even get me started.
