CGS (Computer Generated Solutions)October 2011 - April 2012
This position required very high communicational skills because I was using all my time as a call-center agent. I was calling Vodafone Romania customers that were in their last 3 months of contract, in order to determine them to renew their services contract for at least another year. The job was demanding because I had to talk almost non-stop with as many customers I could and convice them, solve their problems, listen to their complaints about the company and make sure that when they stopped the conversation, they were more please with Vodafone than when I first initiated the call with them. This job required a lot of patience, calm, the ability to carefully choose my words, make the other person feel like I was at least trying to understand what he felt and that I was doing everything in my power to help. At the same time, I also had a target to achieve, of 30 new contracts a day.
