Although they are usually responding to current customers, Client Service Specialists may not have an existing relationship with the individual who requires service.

Examples of Client Service Specialist Positions are:
Customer Service Representative, Help Desk Technician, Customer Relations Specialist, Financial Customer Service Representative, Network Support Specialist, Benefits Specialist, Member Service Representative.
