1. Identify your skill:

Applying for a job without knowing what you excel in is the first wrong step towards building a career in any firm/ industry. On the call center front, you get to choose from the field of IT, Finance, Customer Service/ care, etc.

Having a well- updated resume is crucial yet having a well- expressed cover letter is probably even more important than you think.

Also, maintain an English fluency throughout the cover letter to minus the chances of negative marking.

3. Submit your application:

Submitting your application is the easiest step in the process. Here is where your resume and cover letter is going to be inspected and based on which you can secure an opportunity for an interview or lose one.
