Receptionist Resumes

A receptionist is the first person a customer, vendor or even the employee will see when entering the office. A receptionist might also be the first person we hear or the first person to respond our emails. So, the receptionist has this challenge to look very presentable, attractive and have good communication skills. A receptionist not only greets people but they also answer any phone calls, sort the emails, courier deliveries, looks after the people allowed to enter and leave the office, schedule meetings or travel arrangements, do paperwork and in some cases, they also do administrative tasks.

Every company has its own norms and they hire receptionists as per their own criteria. No formal education is necessary to become a receptionist. Even a high school diploma is enough. Training is given to such individuals over the job. Use of spreadsheets and databases can be useful for these people.

A receptionist does not require a professional degree. They can be a degree holder in any subject or just a high school graduate with experience in customer relations.
