The Unfair Treatment Of Not Having A Backer

In the work industry, there are multiple ways to get the job that we've been aiming to get if we have the guts and determination to do everything just to get the position that we want. We are willing to lend a huge amount of money for the needs of the requirements of the company that we're applying to. And we know that it really needs a huge amount of money to meet the requirements, such as medical certificates, NBI clearances, and many more. After completing all the required requirements needed for a normal employee, we needed to pass all the requirements all by ourselves to the office and, of course, wait for a couple of days for the confirmation call. You will be lucky if they truly call you on that particular day, but if you haven't received any calls for a couple of months already, then you don't have to expect that they will accept you because they won't.

Lucky are those people who have a backer working on the company that they're applying to. Especially if their backer has a higher rank than a regular employee, it'll be expected that they will already be accepted without the need for an interview. 

So, what actually is this "backer" thingy? And why does it sound so superior in terms of job-seeking?

A backer is a certain someone that is working for a particular organization or company that will be the one to pull the strings and open the opportunities for someone that wants a job with their company. They are the ones who help and support those people, commonly their friends or relatives, to get the job position that they're applying for.

What are the advantages of having a 'Backer'?

If you have a relative or you know someone working for that company, then consider yourself lucky and safe, for there is a possibility that you will be accepted for the job position. Backers aren't just normal employees working in a company; they could also be someone working in a government or a government official that you know that might help you get the job that you desire. The benefits of having a backer are that you are almost certain that you will be accepted, especially if your backer is a government official or a "Kapitan." Having a backer beside you could also make your application process even faster than you expect since it will be processed directly. 

But, what are the disadvantages of not having a backer?

People who don't have a backer are mostly just ordinary people in the community. To be honest, here in the Philippines, no matter what your degree is or what your achievements are, when it comes to the job you're applying for, there's still a fifty-fifty chance that you will be accepted if you don't have a backer. Even if you graduated Cumlaude, you won't get the position that suits you. You might be accepted, but you will be placed in a lower position.

My teacher once told us the story of his friend. His friend was a manager at a certain car branch for over five years. When the owner of the company passed the throne to his son, my teacher's friend was then kicked out by the new owner, which is the son. The only reason why he was kicked out was that the new owner wanted his friend to be the new manager. His friend was just an associate graduate for two years, while he, has a degree and graduated Cumlaude. He lost the job that he'd been working at for five years with just a single snap.

People who don't have a backer are mostly bullied and treated unfairly. Compared to a regular employee.

That's how fvckd up and unfair the system is. Even until now.

You can call yourself lucky if the company that you're applying for has the most overwhelming environment and a very charming group of people.

The underlying thing behind this is that, some companies wanted a backer system especially those with them for a year and they already gained the trust, why? They believed that the person knows the people more than them, some company are more on trusted people even no experience for trust is more needs hehe. sorry if I sound objects but are they going to subject such a person if they knew that person could ruin their name? hehe

This is the saddening truth. Good for those who have backers but those who are qualified but have no backers, it would be hard for them. Wala rin akong backer sis kaya kapit lang sa prayers at Diyos. Sya ang pinakamalaking backer.

Before now I thought things like this only happen in my country, but I have come to realize that it's the same everywhere. It's a very disgusting attitude where a job position is given to someone less qualified for it simply because they have a backer

It still happen in at present and its sad. Too much politics in the office that the best people for the job didn't get the job that leads to compromising the job itself.

Yeah, until now it's still circulating all over the job industry. People who deserve the position won't be recognized and that's the saddest part of it.

This is actually happening in my country, especially in government offices, you will hear that a seat is reserved for someone that is still in highschool and they will be paying the person.

lucky are those people who have someone they know working in that particular company. And you're right, the most common thing like that happens in government offices.

Yes this is true sis. As an applicant if you have a connection with the company or what we called the backer. It's really lucky because it will surely you will hired the said position you are applying for. If we will think about it, it's good especially those who needed a job.

The main issue is it's really unfair to those people who work hard with their efforts to be hired but those who have a backer, it will be going smoothly without too much worries. It's really unfair to the ordinary employees.

Uso yang backer na yan sis sa mga factories. Kapag may nagrefer sayo sa loob sigurado na makakapasok ka. Pero sa amin sa IT industry, nope!..dapat mo pa ding dumaan sa proseso at ipasa ang exams and interviews. Kahit nga mga referrals namin madami pa din bumabagsak.

mas better tala yung ganyan ate, na hindi mag ma matter sa backer, dapat yung skills talaga yung hinahanap kung qualified ba talaga. Kasi super unfair sa iba kapag may backer.
