Be cheerful, friendly, and passionate.

The best customer service employees bring a positive “can-do” attitude to customer interactions, and they are passionate about their company’s mission. Bring that same attitude into the language you use in your resume.

No experience, no problem.

If you don’t have years in customer service roles specifically, that’s OK. Just make sure to talk about the ways you applied customer service-related skills in other roles you’ve had, such as a server in a restaurant or a retail sales associate.

Quantify your success.

You should of course talk about your success as an employee at previous jobs, but also be detailed in how you enabled customers to be achieve particular goals or scale impact. Show off your customer-centered perspective.
