LI_CustomerService_Whitepaper_IMG
New position available! Candidate must be willing to get screamed at and insulted by angry customers. Interactions include phone calls, face-to-face, or online chat – all of which need to be handled with poise. Candidate must keep cool at all times, ensuring the customer leaves every encounter with a positive view of the company, no matter how negative he or she may be.

Nexxt career network identifies hot sectors for job seekers

Rich Headshot
What used to be Beyond is now Nexxt.

Just last week, the King of Prussia-based career network Beyond abandoned its brand name and launched a revamped online platform, all to suggest what’s Nexxt in the cause of connecting job recruiters with job seekers.

Pressing the changes is a “tight” labor-market era, with companies struggling to find quality workers, said Nexxt founder and CEO Rich Milgram. The times demand a more aggressive, multitiered approach from the service — one of the “top ten career networks in the nation” — to scour the digital hills for talent and more aggressively pitch jobs and unfamiliar employers to people who aren’t even looking for a new gig.
