Customer Support Agent

If there’s one major complaint that almost every tech company in the world has to deal with from time to time, it’s tech support.

Having the right people in place is always a challenge, as the pay is normally at the low end in the tech world while the skill required is often high. This infographic by our friends at ZenDesk can be used as a roadmap when looking for that exact right person to represent your company on the phone and via chat.

Tech support is not fun. It’s up there with telemarketing and law when it comes to appealing to a specific type of individual. The right people makes the challenges much easier to face.
