I have recently moved to Australia. English is not my first language but people can more or less understand what I say. I plan to study further after the pandemic ends. I am now applying for retail / hospitality jobs to cover my cost of living.
My only work experience was working as a tutor. I also did some FOSS development when I was bored. So obviously, I put
X years of teaching experience in my resume.
When applying for jobs online, sometimes they ask for my
customer service experience. It is often a multiple choice question so I can only choose
X months. Does teaching experience count as
customer service experience?
It is weird to call students "customers", but it is actually true in a certain way from my experience. If you don't entertain your "customers" well enough, they won't come to your class :)
