"In my current position as an Operations Manager, I have spent a large amount of time around clients, getting to grips with their needs, and soothing any disputes that happen. In addition to these customer service skills, I am highly organised, and have great attention to detail. I am able to recognise recent and frequent clients, and I have build up a good rapport for being the friendly go-to face of the company."
"In my current position, I lead a team of 6 associates, all of which I have trained personally. Some of them came to the company as interns, and others were brought aboard as associates straight away. It's my job to train them in human resource tasks, and how to deal with particular clients that need specialised services."
"I hope that you'll find my skills and experiences interesting enough to consider a face-to-face meeting. I am very excited about the prospect of changing careers, and this position at your company feels like a perfect fit. I can identify with your mission to provide excellent customer service, and you'll benefit from a manager who has had experience in dealing with customers and training employees."
