Before you start your day, *Take a Deep Breath*. PATIENCE would be the first and foremost step you would need to be successful in this job.

- TIME MANAGEMENT:

The task switcher shortcut would be the handiest shortcut you would need to be quick while on a call.
This shortcut switches between application-level windows without using the mouse. Hence, it was named Task Switcher.
- KEEN LISTENER:
You need to be a keen listener. Focus on listening first, listen to your customer’s problem.
If they are frustrated, let them vent out (You can mute your mic during this time LOL ) and give them options to solve their problem.
- VOICE TONE :
Since no one can see you. Your voice tone should reflect your personality. Be Polite in any circumstances.
Be precise with your words: “I totally understand your frustration, and surely escalate your issue as soon as possible” could be a way out with the frustrated customer.
Your voice tone can heal some frustration.
- SCREAM/TALK WITH YOUR WORK BUDDIES:
YESSSS! After your work. Now it’s your time to scream and vent out your frustration or hectic/stressful day with 100–300 calls.
It is the time, you can scream or talk with your work buddies and vent out all the stress you had taken the whole day.
Do not take this stress back to your home, Call oriented jobs are energy drainers.
But, leave this stress as soon as you step out of your work and breathe to have a wonderful rest of your day.
