The first step to acquire any job is to make an intelligent and coherent resume (CV). This is the first reflection of you as a professional, an individual as well as what kind of a student you were/are. List down your academic and professional achievements and be honest about them. You can also give an overview of any extra co-circular activities you’ve participated in, besides mentioning the trainings and/or seminars attended (if any).
It is said that networking is of utmost importance in today’s competitive professional world. Look around and you may find someone who has a reference in the call centre industry, or you may know someone who works or has worked in some call centre. Ask them for information about the call centre as well as the industry itself. Apply in their company, because when you know someone who is already working in a company, you have a higher chance of being called for an interview and/or selected for the job.
