How to Get Out of Customer Service

Today being a representative of customer service is really hard since many of them tend to get disappointed. Still, there are a lot of people who pass the customer-service-representative courses, but only a tiny percentage of these graduates pursue this occupation. And the situation is getting worse every day.

Since there are not many representatives of customer service, people wonder – what do they do? What are their duties?

This question has also worried us. That’s why we have done some research. We’ve taken the customer-service-representative summaries and investigated what occupations they’ve chosen after quitting this job. Among over 1000 answers, we’ve selected 100 as the most preferable.

So, the ex-representatives of customer service commonly choose the following ten professions – office assistant, sales associate, checker, management assistant, manager in the office, salesman, trainer of customer service, waiter, administrator, and assistant in the office. 

All these professions are rather excellent. They can serve as the next stair of the career ladder or the platform where the ex-representative of customer service can use all his experience and abilities. 

These professions have one thing in common – they’re boring and predictable choices that you can expect from the former customer service representative.
