Resume & CVSample for Business AnalystPosition Summary- Customer Service Officer

Customer service officers are also known as customer service representatives or specialists. They are required in almost every industry to handle the customer-business relationship, and their job tasks can vary depending on where they work. The responsibilities for this role include communicating with customers either face to face, on the phone, through emails or other channels; providing information about products and services; taking orders; responding to customer queries & complaints; processing returns; and directing calls to specialized departments in some cases. They have access to responses for the most commonly asked questions and to specific guidelines for dealing with requests or complaints. However, if a Customer Service Officer is unable to solve a specific problem, a supervisor or other experienced worker may help.

Whilst addressing customer issues, customer service representatives need to analyse situations, investigate problems, and determine solutions. When a customer calls with a query or to register their complaint, a representative checks their file in the company’s computer system and use the information to resolve problems. Additionally,  they also update information in the customers’ accounts such as change of address and order cancellation etc.

打工仔常說:「在辦公室裏做人比工作更難啊!」若不幸遇到職場欺凌,大部分打工仔也會選擇啞忍或辭職。香港教育專業人員協會在今年2月以電郵向超過一千名教師進行調查,發現過半受訪者在過去六個月內,也在學校遭遇過一次或以上的職場欺凌,例如言語的攻擊、冷嘲熱諷、在背後中傷、上司不停打壓,甚至給過量不合理的工作等等。 這些只是冰山一角,欺凌問題充斥在各行各業。作為打工仔的你該如何應對呢?直接與欺凌者對話,背後的說三道四者,就最怕光明正大的擺上枱面?記錄所有「罪證」,若將來要向公司投訴或訴諸法庭時,這些證據也會成為呈堂証供?與人傾訴和嘗試磨合後也解決不了,那就訴諸投訴機制:工會、勞工、勞工組織和法律援助,都是你的武器?千萬別採取極端招數報復,也不要怪責和否定自己?以下為你詳細解說面對職場欺凌的Dos & Don’ts! 遇到職場欺凌你要做的事 1. 直接與欺凌者對話 愈早發聲,就可避免自己成為「長期攻擊」的對象,這是最關鍵亦最難行的一步,但只要有勇氣踏出這一步,就好大機會可解決問題。要知道如果你愈是忍氣吞聲,欺凌者就會變本加厲。所以當你注意到你受到欺凌時,在情況許可下,可作出即時回應。 例如同事經常要你去幫忙做自己工作範圍以外的事,你可禮貌地說:「不」。幫得一次,他就會繼續找你麻煩;若果你的拒絕令到他說更多難聽的說話,甚至作出人身攻擊,你就要直接說出你的感受,例如:「我無法幫你處理你的工作,但亦請你停止你帶有侮辱性的說話。」很多時候欺凌者會以「開玩笑」作為藉口,或者笑你「唔玩得」,此時你亦可以直接說出你真實的感受:「對啊,我不認為可以這樣開玩笑,希望你能尊重我。」說話時亦要注意自己的姿體語言,挺起胸膛抬起頭地顯露自己的自信。 很多時候欺凌者就是看準被欺凌者的懦弱,透過打敗別人來獲取成功感。若你能自信地回應他的冷嘲熱諷,一來他不會預計到你「原來」懂得反抗,能殺他一個措手不及。二來,每次你也正面反擊,他不能獲得成功感,漸漸便會失去攻擊你的興趣。...
