Meet Jinju, a Customer Service Representative for Pivotal Support

jinju.pngI work at the Pivotal Shanghai office. It is a cool looking building where you have a great view of the city, especially at sunset. I’m a Customer Service Representative (CSR). I'm exceptionally good with Korean customers because I speak Korean and write in Hangul. I enjoy helping the customer, so I make every effort to engage the right resource for each customer request.

When I’m not working I am baking and the Shanghai team samples my creations. They are never afraid of tasting my new red velvet, pumpkin, chocolate chip, blueberry, strawberry cupcakes, lemon madeleine and green tea cookies.

I am proud to be a part of Pivotal Support because the team has a positive attitude and puts the customer's experience first. We always help each other and share any useful information, instead of discussing which job should be whose, people here love to say "I can help!".
