Receptionists are responsible for the smooth coordination of the administrative activities and front-desk tasks for a business.
In receptionist jobs, the typical responsibilities include:
- Attending to visitors and walk-in customers to the office
- Answering phone calls and transferring the calls to the correct recipients.
- Making phone calls to support the office administration activities
- Booking appointments of customers and managing schedules of employees
The average income in receptionist jobs is $12 per hour. Whereas a receptionist can start work with a high school diploma, having a certificate in office administration/clerical studies may help you earn better. A bachelor’s degree course in business communication can also help you get a better income.
