10 Things That No Professional Receptionist Will Do For You
Succeed by not asking
One who is not familiar with the business world might foolishly-think that "skating by" the receptionist is just a formality if you have a job interview with her company. If you do think this, you have so much to learn.
To say it all in one sentence, the receptionst is without question, the most-important person in whatever company you care to name. I know that you'd love to argue with me, but when you slowly think this through, you will come around to my way of thinking.
I cannot list everything that a professional receptionst does during a typical workday, but you can bet your last dollar, it is far more than most of the employees in the company and even the managers and bosses. And if you are seeking employment with the company she works for, take my advice, no matter if you are a male or female, no matter how much you ask, plead or even beg on bended-knee-- there are
10 Things That a Professional Receptionist Will NOT do For You
10.) POSE FOR YOU TO -- snap a suggestive photo of her sitting cross-legged on her desk.
9.) RUSH RIGHT OUT -- to buy you a cold soda because you are dying of thirst.
8.) JOIN YOU -- in singing your favorite song, "I've Been Working on The Railroad."
7.) USE HER PHONE -- and her time to call your cousin " Sal," to see if he will pick you up after your job interview.
6.) ALLOW YOU -- to hold her hand because you are nervous about your job interview.
5.) TAKE TIME -- to play a few hands of Gin Rummy with you to settle your nerves because you have never applied for work with a company as big as the one she works for.
4.) INSPECT YOUR -- wardrobe and tell you (for $100.00) how good you look.
3.) LET YOU BORROW -- a few bucks to buy your lunch because you forgot your wallet.
2.) LET YOU LEAN OVER -- the front of her desk just to enjoy how gorgeous she looks.
1.) DO IMPRESSION -- of Beyonce and sing a few of her hit songs.
If you don't believe me, the next time you are out of work and you apply for a job at a company with a nice-looking receptionist sitting out front, go ahead. Be brave and ask her to do a few of these things.
And do not be offended if she asks you to leave.
Notice: this is NOT a professional receptionist
