Being a receptionist may not seem like the most glamorous job, but it's still a highly important role in a business. If you're a warm and welcoming person and you love interacting with people, this job may be a great fit for you!
A Day in the Life of a Receptionist
The receptionist is the first person to interact with a company's guests and callers, and a first impression is everything, especially in business! A good receptionist makes sure to value every visitor and caller and treat them as a VIP, no matter what their relationship to the business may be.
At Stanislaus Food Products, for example, we want all our customers to be treated as valued members of the extended Stanislaus family.
Our receptionist would always be friendly, courteous, and helpful when connecting people to the appropriate department or staff member. They would also be a team player and be sure to greet everyone with a smile (yes, even on the phone)!
Qualifications for a Receptionist
As the first person to greet a guest, the most important qualities that a receptionist should have are excellent customer service and communication skills. You should also possess an intermediate or advanced level of computer knowledge, particularly firsthand experience working with programs like Microsoft Word, Excel, and Oracle.
Organization and attention to detail are key to succeeding as a receptionist. You must be able to multitask as needed, and you should have excellent active listening skills and a cheerful attitude. Remember, every person you greet should feel like part of the family!
