Default Direct Interactions- WAH Call Center Research Development Specialist

Research Development Specialist

Company Introduction

Based in Seattle, Direct Interactions provides contact center solutions using American agents that work from home. We are socially responsible in our business practices and seek to provide great at-home work opportunities for all Americans, including people with disabilities. Our clients rely on Direct Interactions to support their customers by telephone and email while representing their brands with care and professionalism.
Direct Interactions seeks three home-based workers for an exciting business-to-business program. Successful candidates will make outbound calls to human resources professionals at major corporations, law firms and accounting firms to encourage them to complete an online survey. These are not “cold calls” because a prior business relationship exists however agents must exhibit professionalism and tact when asking busy clients to fill out the online survey.
Although this is not a sales position, some sales skills are valuable. For example, successful candidates demonstrate the ability to build strong relationships in a corporate environment using phone and email. Our people excel at building rapport and communicate effectively with directors and executives of Fortune 500 companies.
Workers will be measured by their professionalism and effectiveness on the phone as well as their productivity working from home in a virtual contact center environment.

• Ability to articulate a persuasive argument on the value of enrollment
