Most ‘function from home’ tasks that you locate online appear to be some kind of pyramid or ‘start your own service’ system. Paying a signing up with fee or buying their products for you to sell on? No thanks!

Eventually I made a decision to have another little look and also encountered The Conversation Store. I saw the “Live Conversation Agent” task on their professions page as well as, after checking out the description, a huge wave of joy came over me. Not only did I suit their needs to a tee (careful learner with an analytical mind, solid capability to multi-task, high degrees of organisation ways to advertise jobs on social media as well as a keying speed above 80 words per minute), it also looked like a task that I would actually like to do!

I applied instantly! I patiently waited for a reply however, to my surprise, I wasn’t waiting long in all.

My interview started like any other: we presented ourselves and also had a little bit of a casual inviting chat (that made me really feel comfortable). Then it was on to the major interview. What was unusual was the reality that the conversation was very similar to an in person interview, except it was using real-time chat!

The inquiries were about my previous experience, why I was looking for the job, how I ‘d handle particular situations and also my knowledge of The Chat Shop and their solutions.

Amy was aiming to reveal my toughness and also weak points to figure out whether I might fulfill the high assumptions that they establish. She needed to know where I would certainly require a little additional training and where I could bring new skills to the group.

This is the last stage of their recruitment process and also I was proud that I had got this far but I was likewise very nervous! Thankfully the telephone meeting was not as scary as I when assumed as well as it was extra casual than official.

I obtained asked about my pastimes, what I like to do in my leisure as well as a couple of questions regarding the Live Conversation Agent position. I also had some comments on my ‘Live Conversation Interview’, which was wonderful to listen to.

At the end of the telephone interview I was supplied the placement … as well as I approved with wonderful satisfaction, certainly. I mored than the moon and also I still am!

When I had accepted the deal I was emailed the contracts that required to be signed electronically (exactly how awesome is that), my working hours, what team I would certainly be in and all of my log-in information all set for my training.

Not long hereafter I had a phone call with John– my Team Leader. This phone called lasted around 2 hours and also he explained every little thing I needed to understand about the “Live Conversation Agent” setting. I made sure to make great deals of notes in my notebook as it is a great deal to take in.
