Common Key Skills and Action Verbs for Customer Service Representative Resumes

When applying to a position, the right combination of keywords is often critical be able to get past any applicant tracking systems (ATS). An ATS may only highlight a resume with enough keywords and the right action verbs, so a hiring manager may never see a resume that lacks the right phrases.

An ATS crawls through your resume, looking for specific keywords and phrases. If it doesn’t find them, your resume goes to the bottom of the pile. If it does have a good selection of keywords, it goes right to the hiring manager for consideration. Because your resume must pass both automated systems and excite the person behind the firewall, it is important to design a resume that naturally includes these phrases. The more keywords you work into your resume text, the more likely you are to land an interview.

Tips for Writing a Better Customer Service Resume

Quantify your customer service experience to feature your successes

When writing your resume, it is important to quantify your experience to give hiring managers a way to understand your skills and abilities at a glance. When pulling together bullet points for your resume, be sure to ask questions such as:

  • How many customers did you help per day?
  • How many products did you sell?
  • How many people were in your department?

The goal is to provide concrete information that describes your performance.

Example #1


Assisted more than 50 customers per day with purchasing decisions and product details to improve the customer experience, recommending sale items and earning a customer satisfaction rating 15% higher than the company average


Helped customers with sales transactions

Example #2


Implemented upselling process that resulted in a 6% increase in total sales, earned certificate as Employee of the Month, and took on a mentorship role for new representatives


Offered customers additional products and made recommendations

Highlight your communication skills and ability to listen to customer needs

A customer service career requires the ability to listen to customers, communicate product information, and finalize sales or handle complaints. The ability to communicate politely and in accordance with company policies is critical for driving high customer satisfaction ratings. Include some concrete examples of your success at communication in your professional experience bullets, without ignoring the importance of concrete information.

Example #1


Maintained a customer satisfaction rating 15% higher than the company average by delivering on customer needs and memorized the product catalog of more than 400 items to more rapidly assist customers


Met required benchmarks for customer satisfaction

Example #2


Worked with customers on complaints, successfully avoiding service cancellation on 98% of calls and providing additional information about ancillary service


Minimized cancellation requests

How to Align Your Resume With the Job Description

Customer service positions may be more competitive over the next decade. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that the economy will shrink by 4% in this industry. Automation technology plays a big role in the expected change. More companies allow customers to handle frequent tasks like returns or exchanges through a bot or via a web portal. With less need for human oversight on standard procedures, companies may not be adding as many customer service jobs.

A hiring manager might sort through dozens — or hundreds — of resumes to find a shortlist of qualified candidates. To help your resume make it to the list of resumes that lead to interview requests, be sure to include the skills and experience listed in the job description.
