How Properly Format Your Resume or C.V. For Call Center Jobs

Always Keep It Simple

Click edit above to add content to this empty capsule.

A C.V is what you use to sell yourself to the company that you are applying for.

As you have read in the last two posts about how to get past the first interview to get a job, and how to get a sales job. I like to focus on what will help you get a job because I have been helping people getting jobs for over 2.5 years.

In times like this economic recession you need every advantage over your competitors to make sure that you get the same job that over 50 applicants are applying for.

The first step before you actually get the interview is to make sure that your resume sells you properly to the employer.

In this post we are going to give you a few templates that you can use to make sure you get the right job.

A few tips for your CV:

Email: Do not have silly email or an embarrasing email address. Either use firstname.lastname@domain.com or name@domain.com, try to stop acting like a child or a movie buff. Email addresses like hotnhorny@hotmail.com or looking4love@gmail.com.

Telephone: If you have a cell phone make sure that your voice mail is not silly. Have a professional voice mail message, don't have Homer Simpson on your voicemail and don't have rap or crunk music playing in the background whilst the phone is being connected.

Now lets get ready for the templates.

In the personal statement you want to add information about yourself.  Usually in a paragraph.  It is okay to talk in the third person here.  Below is an example of what to add in your personal statement:

I am capable of working without supervision, and willing to assume additional responsibility. A committed team player with leadership ability, who uses high standards of communication aptitude to establish positive interpersonal relationships, quick and willing to assimilate and apply new work procedures.
