    I have a degree in journalism and used to be great on the phone back during the 70s as a newspaper reporter.
    I wound up with a career doing something way different.
    Now I'm a retired old dude with a tinnitus load of chirping crickets being heard in my ears as I now write on this keyboard.
    Here is an example of me on the phone.
    Me: "As I said, ma'am, I'm a little hard of hearing. Could you please raise your voice?"
    Lady: "Oh, I'm sorry. You did ask that of me, didn't you? The most important thing we should consider is mumble, mumblle, mumble.
    Me: Excuse me, ma'am, the most important thing is--?"
    Lady: Oh,I'm sorry, this most im-or-mumble, mumble, mumble."
    (This is like talking on the phone to my own 27-year-old-son).
    (That's never a problem with my ex-wife. She's always loud).

    I could use a new career. What would the hours be like? And if working remotely what kind of office equipment would I need to possess?

      You would need a good phone and a computer with Internet access.

      Harmon is on Pacific time and since you'll be dealing with a lot of phone calls with businesses you'd need to be available during normal business hours (this couldn't be like a nights and weekends job).

    detail oriented and "superstar on the phone" seem contradictory to me. by definition salespeople aren't rule followers-they initiate stuff. Is this a sales position or administrative primarily?

      It's an administrative position with heavy incoming and outgoing phone responsibilities.

          So the "What" is actually "MAKING" calls, not the vague 'handling calls'... :)

          Reminds me of the time at HP when my boss wanted to hire someone to take over womb-to-tomb management of one of our configuration guides, which I'd been doing as a 'part time job' in addition to my designated responsibilities.

          I wrote the job description and interviewed several candidates, including the one we hired for the position.

          Nearly a year into the job, she came to my desk and announced that the job description I'd written was The Most Accurate representation of the Actual Position that she'd ever run into.

          Thanks, I replied. Thank YOU, she answered. And did a great job in that position, too!

          Ah, the memories. Skills unwanted today..
