Marie Cris E. Mabuhay – Telemarketer and Lead Generation Specialist
Hello there! Welcome to my story.
My name is Marie Cris Mabuhay, born and raised in Naga City (The Happy Place), the heart of Bicol peninsula, Philippines.
When I was a kid I thought of becoming a fashion designer but when I reached high school I realised that there’s no design school that I can pursue my passion for creating my own clothing line. So in college I decided to take BS Civil Engineering even if it’s not my first love, but still, the good side was I will still be “designing” a house. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to finish my school due to our family’s financial crisis. My parents couldn’t afford my college fees anymore and I still have younger siblings as well.
Anyways, how you view life is a choice. So instead of dwelling on the situation I looked for opportunities to keep me going.
I decided to look for a job so I can start earning money to help my family with our financial needs. Luckily, without any work experience, I landed my first job in the BPO industry in 2009 as a Customer Service Representative. I worked my way up from being CS agent to product trainer and eventually being a team leader in some of the biggest names in the business industries of Telco, Airline, Credit Card and accounting softwares. I have gained experience in Sales, Customer Service, Learning and Development and Management and have attended numerous leadership training and seminars along the way.
I received awards and recognition for my hard work back then. But above all, what was extra special was when I saw my agents perform and being promoted in their chosen paths… this was the most rewarding part of my stay. No amount of words can explain how happy I am seeing them grow.
I had to leave the BPO world in 2015 and started my own food cart business, as apart from designing, I also have a passion and the taste for cooking. Funds, resources and great support from my family was there so I took the chance to enter the food business.
In 2016 another blessing came – I fell pregnant! 🙂 I have a beautiful daughter and her name is Olivia. Everything changed from that moment on and I know that it has changed for the better. 2016 was the same year that I started working from home. I have worked as a telemarketer, lead generation specialist, and assistant.
Above and beyond the skills that I have developed, I am a woman of integrity and that is the value that I uphold the most in all of my life’s choices. Now, I want to continue being an empowered woman and still be able to take care of my daughter while pursuing a great career working from home. I want to contribute and be a part of your company’s success as an employee serving a mutual purpose. Let us grow together, as a team!
Thank you for taking the time to read my short story.
Again this is Marie, your future VA.
