What was unusual was the reality that the conversation was really similar to a face-to-face interview, except it was by means of online chat!

The concerns were about my previous experience, why I was making an application for the work, just how I would certainly manage specific circumstances and also my expertise of The Chat Shop and their solutions.

This is the last stage of their employment procedure and I was proud that I had actually got this much however I was additionally very nervous! Luckily the telephone meeting was not as frightening as I when thought and it was a lot more informal than official.

I got asked about my hobbies, what I such as to do in my spare time as well as a few questions concerning the Live Chat Representative position. I also had some comments on my ‘Live Conversation Interview’, which was excellent to listen to.
