New York City 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.
