Let’s Talk: Why Do People Put Others Down For The Type Of Job They Have?

If you’ve ever worked in customer service, you’ve probably heard someone say something like, “that’s not a real job.” But why isn’t it? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

So many people underestimate what it really is to work in customer service. You’re subjected to rude customers and sometimes even poor working conditions daily. But the benefit is that customer service jobs often lead to advancement opportunities. In these entry-level roles, people may actually just be acquiring all the skills they need to improve their chances of a promotion. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

There’s also the argument that it’s not a real job because “you didn’t have to go to school for it,” or “it doesn’t require any skills,” but people tend to forget how big of a role communication skills are in these jobs. Customer service jobs tend to provide you with skills that will be transferable at some point in your lifetime. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The work may not always be fun, but it’s one of the most character-building experiences one can have. Furthermore you’ll probably be working with some amazing people, too. Personally, I’ve made more friends working in customer service than I did working in corporate settings. It’s like having your friends come over to help you clean up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

So remember, there’s no job beneath a person; all work is noble. As long as your job is satisfactory enough for you and you’re able to support yourself on the income you’re earning, why does it matter where you work?

  1. There is NOTHING wrong with a legal paying job! Better than selling drugs and taking the risk of going to prison! You don’t have to worry about your kid going to school and being teased cause everyone knows you takes your clothes off for money. Bill Gates doesn’t have a college degree! Customer service is hard work! And if you don’t want to do it then it’s plenty of people overseas that will take it. And please let’s stop that cause I can’t stand calling customer services and the person speaking got a thick accent. Clear English please!!!! More Americans, that would be great!
