Telecommunicators are those people whose job is to call a variety of different people and try to get them to purchase something or inform the caller about their company’s products. They are usually hired by the company to make these phone calls.
The type of calls that are made depends upon the company that the telecommunicator works for. One thing that the telecommunicator has to do is to multi-task. Multi-tasking is when a worker must juggle doing several things at one time.
A telecommunicator must multi-task by answering calls, typing in data into the computer and making decisions. Besides this, they may have to deal with urgent issues and shift rotations. They may be asked to come in and cover a shift because other telecommunicators did not show up.
