How To Be A Job Creator

For those of you interested in bringing American businesses back to these shores, were you aware of this? Whenever you call a toll-free number for customer service and find yourself speaking to a foreign customer rep (think Peggy, of commercial fame), you might consider doing the following:

Once you realize that the customer service representative is not from the U.S. (you can always ask if you’re not sure), you may request, politely but firmly, to speak to a customer service rep in the United States. If the person suggests speaking with his/her manager, simply thank them and repeat your request. If you stand firm, you will immediately be connected to a rep in the U.S.

That is the rule and the Law! It takes less than one minute to redirect your call to the United States. Imagine what would happen if every U.S. citizen insisted on talking only to U.S. phone reps from now on. Think how that ultimately would impact the number of U.S. jobs which would need to be created here. It would become an exercise in Viral Marketing 101. Remember, the goal is to restore jobs here at home, so please ask nicely, and remember, these people are only doing their jobs – until, that is, we bring those jobs back where they belong! And with the power of numbers and the miracle of compounding, the 99% can become job creators. Don’t believe those who say, you’re only one person, what can you do that will make a difference? One is a very powerful number! And be sure to pass this on to your friends!

About the Author:

Born in a small, Illinois log cabin. No, that won't work. The pampered only child of incredibly wealthy parents. No, that doesn't fly either. Raised by French nuns after her aristocratic parents were beheaded. No, that's been done! An East Coast transplant to the Pacific Northwest, this notoriously late bloomer began her new life with a new career as a writer and blogger. She has taken to both the new location and the career move like a duck to water. Writing for Expats Post is a new adventure, and our intrepid risk-taker is diving in, feeling right at home with so many old friends.
Reached for comment she replied, "Okay, I wrote my bio, may I Please go out and play?"
We expect great, or perhaps merely more coherent, things from this writer. (Okay, that's a wrap. What a wacko!)

  • I cannot tell you how many times I have been talking to someone who really doesn’t wholly understand the language and just keeps repeating scripts to me that really have nothing to do with what I am inquiring about. this is good information and so important. I don’t think the average person realizeds that we even have that option. Awesome…

    • Dani, when I broke up with Capital One, I did it over the phone, and I think I was actually dealing with a computer! I’m so glad to know about this, I’m telling all my friends!

  • Dani, I’ll show you mine and you show me yours: file:///C:/Users/Meody/Desktop/MELODY%20BROO%20ARCHIVE/cutting-the-ties-that-bind.htm

    I will never do business with them again either. My mtg. is with BofA so I can’t get rid of them. But at least we’re free of one of the monsters! 🙂

  • I didn’t know you could do that! I wouldn’t mind the language barrier if it wasn’t so bad that neither I nor the customer service rep couldn’t understand one another. Sometimes I’m unsure if my transaction has actually been transacted!

    • Jen, I know what you mean. Some of the people I’ve talked with truly reminded me of ‘Peggy’. And I will freely admit that even those folks speak English better than I speak their languages, but still! Let’s get the word out, because most people Don’t know about this and they don’t want Us to know. Let’s Get the bustards!

  • Very interesting Melody, with jobs being sourced out to other countries this is a good idea to bring them back, it’s the same here with call centres and businesses. I’m pretty sure a lot of people are not aware of this.

  • Garry, I was so happy when I found out about this. We may be the “little guys” in this situation, but there Are some things we can do. We’re not helpless, it just takes a lot of us little guys doing the little things that can change the situation. We Are the 99%!

  • Yes! The written word filled with useful information. What a novel concept. I love conversations about business and the power of the consumer! This will sound pretty lame but…You go girl! I learned something new today and I thank you for the education, Melody. 🙂

  • Gillean, I guess we’re both lame, then, because it kind of gets me excited, too. Anything to give us the hope that, as consumers, we are Not completely at the mercy of the system! Thanks for cheering me on!
