An example of how to plan each criterion:

 

Demonstrated high-level communication skills including oral, negotiation, interpersonal and written skills.

  1. Challenges you have needed to overcome: Speaking to people with English as a second language.
  2. Actions you have taken to over the challenges: Use google translate, translators, extensive use of body language and pictures and communicate in a simple English style.
  3. Results/outcomes of the actions (facts and figures would be preferable): Strong relationships built, enhanced customer satisfaction and a high return customer rate.

Then put the paragraph together that you would add into the cover letter:

Demonstrated high-level communication skills including oral, negotiation, interpersonal and written skills.

While working as a customer service representative, many customers used English as a second language. This made coordinating meeting agendas challenging. To ensure accuracy, I utilised Google Translate, engaged in translator services, used extensive body language and pictures to communicate in a simple English style. These techniques proved successful as I had a high return customer rate and strong relationships were built on enhanced customer satisfaction.
