Receptionist or Information Clerk Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Receptionist or Information Clerk?

Receptionist or Information Clerk in Blanchester:
"Pleasant."
Pros: Relaxed friendly atmosphere. Meeting new people.
Cons:

Receptionist or Information Clerk in Houston:
"Everything Means Something."
Pros: For the first time in my life I just jump out of bed in the morning looking forward to a wonderful adventure. Working at the front desk at one of the largest community colleges in the United States has given me confidence and courage that has created a wonderful sense of self in my persona. Meeting people from all over the world, I have learned so much about myself and how adaptable I am. It is much easier to communicate with the hands and the eyes than most people realize. The campus is very large, with persons coming in needing information about everything from degree plans and financial aid; to preparing for entrance exam testing or how to drop a class. There was really only basic training when I started. However, my previous experience in the business world and as a sales person really contributes to my ability to reach out to other departments when a disgruntled, but prospective student walks in and looks at me as though I am their last hope. I really love it!!!
Cons: Beginning as a work study student a year and a half ago, I quickly fell in love with the job. The days fly by with so much to do, but being paid as a student at my age is very troublesome. I'm thrilled that I've done so well, but worry I'll not be able to apply my degree in a position that will give me both satisfaction and financial security I need to work into my seventies.
