You should hire me because I am really passionate about customer service. I really enjoy dealing with people and working with them to help them resolve any problems that they might have. My most recent role was as a Customer Service Representative with ABC Communications and I was in that role for three years. During that time I handled telephone calls, attended to customer queries, issued advice and resolved product delivery and technical issues. I also liaised extensively with the sales team and worked in collaboration with them to ensure services were delivered on time. I would bring my experience, excellent communication and interpersonal skills to your company and I know that my abilities to multi-task accurately under pressure and remain calm while resolving customer complaints in a friendly and professional manner would help me to succeed in this role.
