National Receptionists Day

Townsquare Media

Two weeks ago we celebrated Administrative Professionals Day or Secretary’s Day. Today it might sound like the same thing, but people who do the jobs know they’re different. Today is National Receptionists Day. It’s always designated as the second Wednesday of May.

It was created in 1991 by the Director of the National Receptionists Association, Jennifer Alexander to “gain awareness and appreciation for the role of receptionists in a business setting and to provide community and support for receptionists nationwide.”

It’s a day to recognize and appreciate all the things that receptionists do. And for many companies a receptionist is the first person that customers see when they walk in. If they have a great smile, speak well, they’re cheerful and helpful it helps give a great first impression of the company.

This also considered National Receptionist Week.

Some famous people who started of as receptionists include

  • Naomi Judd who teamed with daughter Wynonna to form The Judds.
  • Linda McCartney worked as a receptionist for Town and Country Magazine. It’s where she met Paul McCartney.
  • Dolly Parton played the role of receptionist Doralee Rhodes in the movie “9 To 5”.
  • And who can forget Pam Beesley – the receptionist on “The Office” played by Jenna Fischer.
