What jobs can I apply for having great customer service skills?
I have few years long customer service experience, worked for best customer service employers. However, my aim is to move away from retail, where I've been working for years, to non-retail environment, either reception or admin, where my customer service skills could be advantageous and useful. The problem is that when I apply for receptionist/secretarial job, I don't get these sort of jobs, because I am told that I don't have any reception/secretarial experience, and when I apply for admin/admin assistance where the customer service is also mentioned as required skill, I don't get the job either due to, again, lack of experience in administration. So either way, my customer service alone does not attract any jobs (except in retail...) so please any tips how to get out of this situation and move away from retail? What do I need to write in my CV/covering letters to attract employers? Just to add, I tried several times getting unpaid work experience or internship but with no results. Any advice would be highly appreciated.
