Receptionists usually sits up front and answers phones, greets customers, sometimes books conference rooms and orders lunch. Occasional light administrative work. Secretary and Administrative Assistant are the same thing. PS: Executive Administrative Assistant you work for an 'executive' and make alot more money.
