Resume & Motivation letter 

Your resume looks its best when it has perfect grammar, name and contact details, chronological job history, brief descriptions of your previous work and relevant achievements. We look for a well-structured document that gets the message across in a concise way. Your resume should be a snippet of your complete profile, not a full list of everything you’ve ever done.

Tailor your motivation to the job requirements and explain in detail how your passion, drive and enthusiasm make you the right person for the job.

Show us why should be your next career destination and don’t hide your enthusiasm. Interviews at are conversations, so relax and let’s get to know each other.

    "Customer Service Rep"

    I worked at full-time (Less than a year)


    The management was great, the perks of the job are good, and the company environment is excellent.


    It is still customer service in a call center. You will have to deal with emotional people on the phone all day. The company does their best to make the position as good a they can but they cannot change the fundamentals of the job.

    Advice to Management

    keep doing what your doing.
