What does a Receptionist do?

Receptionists are the figurehead of companies, museums, clinics or hotels. As a Receptionist you greet guests personally and are usually the first person visitors come into contact with. Depending on where you work, you provide information, accept luggage, inform the person with whom the visitor has an appointment about their arrival and accompany the visitor to the waiting room. In doing so, you make the visitors feel at ease.
