how can i get a receptionist job without any experience?
im trying to find a local receptionist job during the day time hours. i am still a highschool student, so i lack previous receptionist jobs. i have worked with customer for over 3 years and am looking for a receptionist job, so i can work two jobs and save my money. all the receptionist jobs available all require previous experience.

Apply for the jobs that require experience and focus on what you do know how to do. You might also let them know that you're willing to come "hang out" for a day so they can see if you're a good fit and how quickly you pick things up.
