Are you trying to find a job?
Ask yourself this question: How good is Your Resume?
The fact is that most people have boring and plain resume papers and you are probably one of these people.
Due to the economic crisis of recent years, the amount of jobs available has decreased. This is causing competition to be fierce and forcing people to get creative with the resumes.
If you’re one of these people, your first task should be to create a resume that not only serves its original purpose but also stands out from the rest of the pile.
The design of your customer service resume:
One way to impress your future employer is to create a resume that looks good, clean and creative. Your resume needs to be different to be able to stand out from the rest. Don’t be afraid to be creative. You can use different colors and themes and apply it to your resume.
If you lack creativity, you can search in Google and look for creative resume styles to get some ideas from other people’s examples.
Please make sure you go for elegance, common sense and good taste. Applying all the colors of the rainbow to your customer service resume will not exactly improve your chances of getting the job.
The length of your resume models:
There are many people that will argue that you should put every detail of your past life in your resume, along with every bit of information and skills you can think of but this is far from true.
Put yourself in the hands of the person going over resumes. Your resume is probably one in a pile of many others and reading every single one of them line by line is not exactly a fun task. Now imagine how pleased an interviewer is going to be when he has to read a resume that is two or three pages long.
Keep your resume simple and add only your most important information in a clean and orderly format.
Focus your resume on the job you are going for:
Since this is a customer service resume, you need to focus your content on this area. Customer service requires good personal and communication skills. You need to be able to solve a customer’s problem and also be able to establish long term relationships with this customer.
Your future employer will be looking for parts in your resume that pertain to the customer service skills needed to succeed. It is important for you to highlight the skills and experiences you can bring to your employer to increase your chances of being hired.
Think of your resume as a sales letter and your employer as a potential buyer. If the buyer is looking for apples, there is no point on trying to sell him potatoes.
Keep your head up and follow the tips on this article. Once you have a good quality customer service resume, make sure you distribute it to as many potential employers as possible.
The more resumes you pass out the greater your chances are of getting hired. Stay positive and get ready to start 2012 with a positive step towards your new career.
