The role of receptionist can be one of the most valuable for any organization. I believe my role as a receptionist is to be the first impression of the organization. I take that very seriously and hope to reflect the values your organization holds most dear. Above all, my role as a receptionist is to provide a warm and inviting experience for visitors, guests and my fellow employees as they enter and exit the building. I hope to make a positive and lasting first impression that elicits a good memory of your organization.
When people call the front desk, they can be greeted with a warm, friendly personality that balances being professional with brightening their day. When visitors enter the door, they need to feel welcome and also have confidence that I know how to help them. At the same time, I also have worked in environments where client and patient identity are important to protect. Hopefully, your organization provides any necessary compliance training, so I understand the expectations for your industry.
I also know how to engage visitors by having casual friendly conversations if they express interest in doing so and knowing when to respect the silence when they are focused on the potential meeting with one of the team members.
Learning who does what in the organization also is a high priority, so I can best direct callers and visitors to the people best suited to meet their needs. While I am experienced operating most phone systems, I also bring additional skills including Microsoft Office knowledge and WebEx conferencing systems.
Not only can I provide a professional and friendly attitude, I also have a list of references who can testify on my behalf. Please know how much I value your time and look forward to taking the next step in the hiring process.

Re: Front-Office Receptionist, Advertised on Monster
Dear Mr. Simpson:
After reviewing your job announcement for a front-office receptionist, I was struck by how closely my qualifications match your requirements.
For the past 3 years, I have worked as a front-office receptionist at XYZ, Inc. (a medical device company), where my duties are very similar to those outlined in your position opening:
- Warmly greeting and assisting customers and visitors
- Providing prompt, courteous call handling, routing and screening within a busy office setting
- Assisting HR with maintaining updated company rosters and phone lists
- Using MS Office to develop reports, templates, spreadsheets and presentations
- Performing clerical assignments (e.g., copying, filing, emailing, web updates and records management)
I believe that past performance is one of the best predictors of future success. Here are excerpts from my most recent review at XYZ:
“…Christina is a tremendous asset to our team in her role as front-office receptionist…energetic, enthusiastic and upbeat…outstanding communication and customer service skills…highly organized and efficient…her computer skills have been a real asset to the department…reliable, flexible and willing to pitch in when needed…a team player and outstanding employee. We are all going to miss her!”
— Penelope Cho, Supervisor, XYZ, Inc.
Next month I will be relocating to Sometown, PA, making it impractical for me to remain at XYZ due to the 100-mile commute. I have given my employer 30-day notice of my resignation, and am actively seeking employment in what will soon be my new hometown.
I am available to interview in person with just a few days notice, or immediately over the phone or via Skype (Skype ID: christinanicholslive). I hope to hear from you soon.
