Chicago Receptionist Jobs Overview

Receptionists are the first faces you see at nearly every business. They embody a business's personality and set the tone for a guest's visit. Beyond the smiling face and charming voice, however, receptionist jobs require someone who is a multitasker, who can handle office security, office supply inventory and ordering, and assisting with various administrative projects. As a receptionist, you'll also greet and direct visitors, monitor a logbook, issue visitor badges, and operate a multi-line telephone system.

Receptionist jobs are great entry-level positions that allow you to get a first-hand look (and perhaps some experience) at other jobs you might want to try. It can also be a stable long-term career. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projects a steady demand for receptionists, especially in physician and dentist offices. The need for bilingual receptionists is growing, so knowing a second language can increase your job opportunities and salary.

About Working in Chicago, Illinois

If you're going to Chicago to experience "da Bears," deep-dish pizza, and windy streets, native Chicagoans say "fogetta 'bout it!" While these have made Chicago famous, you'll find many locals eating thin-crust, tavern-style pie. Plus, the city isn't on any list of the windiest cities in the U.S.—a local newspaper named it "The Windy City" after the Chicago elite's propensity toward boastfulness and self-promotion. And while the Chicago jobs list (hit jobs, that is) includes notorious mobsters from Chicago like Al Capone, John Dillinger, and Baby Face Nelson, linguists are noticing that the "Chicago accent" is disappearing.

However, there's a reason Condé Nast Traveler has named Chicago the "best big city in the U.S." Chicago is home to top universities, including Northwestern University, Wheaton College, and Valparaiso. And if you're looking for Chicago jobs, you can relocate to any one of the city's unique neighborhoods, such as North Center with its cozy Irish pubs and breweries or Uptown, the lively entertainment district. For those who want to live further out from the city, you can also find jobs in popular suburbs including Cicero, Oak Park, and Evanston.
