Dear Ms. Solomon:
Your customer service manager position advertised on Monster is an excellent fit to my qualifications.
During the past five years, I have been promoted to increasingly responsible positions within ABC Company, serving as a customer service representative, acting supervisor and East Coast customer service manager (my current role). Throughout my tenure with ABC, I have built lasting customer relationships, salvaged key accounts and strengthened customer loyalty.
Regarded as a proactive problem solver and liaison between cross-functional business units and high-value client accounts, I am passionate about serving customers with excellence. Achievement highlights:
- Rebuilt the East Coast customer service team from the ground-up. Instituted new training programs, accountability measurements and performance goals that led to record-setting gains in customer satisfaction scores¾from 85% in 2016 to 96% in 2017.
- Averted the threatened loss of three multimillion-dollar accounts. Investigated and resolved billing discrepancies and rectified shipping delays to win back client trust. Worked with cross-functional teams to improve accounting and logistics processes to prevent future issues.
- Rolled out a new CRM system to allow for more personalized and customized service.
My customer service management experience is reinforced by a bachelor’s degree in communications, proficiencies in CRM database systems and fluency in Spanish.
I am confident in my ability to further the success of your customer service organization. Please call me at (555) 555-5555 or email email@example.com to arrange a meeting. I look forward to speaking with you.
