Help Desk Resume

Introduction and Background

[Suggest Improvement]

Help desk departments often monitor the number of jobs opened, completed and escalated by the department. For this reason, it may pay to discuss your ability, willingness and experience with jobs that serve many customers in a single day. If you have had good accolades such as employee of the month with service oriented jobs it may be a good idea to note that in your application.

You may also be required to liaise with other technical teams in order to escalate issues. Demonstrating technical knowledge and the confidence to escalate issues by communicating an accurate description of the problem, it\'s scale (that is the number of users it is affecting) and other important details such as the incident start time may help to show your suitability to the job. Specialist technical teams can be hampered in their recovery efforts by misinformation, so demonstrating a willingness to collect facts may also help.
