Customer Support, Virtual Assistant, Project Manager, Quality Control

Philippines - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 1

My past and present jobs revolve around providing good quality customer service. My main responsibility has always been about making clients happy. Let me describe my job tasks starting from my present job then my past job. At the present, I am working as the executive virtual assistant of the president of a US-based website company for real estate agents since July 3, 2014. My position involves many tasks such as calling clients, customer service and support through email correspondence, managing projects, quality control, research and support lead. During the start of my shift, I confirm appointments with clients then acknowledge receipt of tech support tickets and other kinds of emails/inquiries/requests. My main role at the start of my shift is to let clients know that we received and are working on their queries. Then I assign tech support issues to our tech support staff. Right now there are three of them. Pretty soon there will be five of them who I need to manage altogether. Thankfully, my boss hired me an assistant who helps me get my tasks done. I keep track on tasks that are on top priority and make sure that all tech support staff are working on them. While I assign other staff to build websites of new clients, others are assigned to fix issues or do upgrades on the websites of existing clients. I provide them clear instructions to meet the clients' needs and then update the clients on their tickets. When tech support staff say that they are done with their tasks, I do quality control checks before confirming to clients. During my free time at work, I spend time on watching internal training videos and reading company SOP's and tutorials. That made me eventually learn tech support tasks one at a time. During busy times, I help tech support staff on their tasks such as integrating CRM on a client's website, updating website content, correcting website forms and researching on a tech support issue. I learn new tasks almost everyday. Our tech support staff always have questions on their tasks and I answer them or help them find the answer. I train them when I need to. Prior to my present job, I worked as a technical/customer support representative at a call center company. I was enjoying my job for two years and two months which turned out to be technical support, customer service and billing support all in one. I took incoming calls and helped customers in fixing their internet, phone and television issues. That work experience made me become a skilled technical support and customer service provider with a variety of experience and a positive attitude. The summary of my knowledge and skills are: email support, customer service, virtual assistance, appointment setting, phone support, call handling, Dropbox, Google Docs, Google Drive, Google Voice, Infusionsoft, Basecamp, IDXBroker, iHomefinder, Kayako, Gmail, Top Producer, support lead, problem solving, multi-tasking, data entry, ability to solve problems quickly, pays attention to details, types fast, has sufficient knowledge about MS Office and learns new skills rapidly. Being a positive person and a problem solver, I have proved to my boss that I am a rockstar VA and customer service specialist. My hunger for knowledge and dedication at work have made me become a great freelancer that I am now.
