Front Desk Receptionist

I have been job hunting since January and we all know what a pleasant experience it is. I have been discouraged, depressed, nervous, and tired beyond belief from not sleeping and worryingabout everything. If any of you guys aren't using ZipRecruiter, I strongly encourage you to try it out. I was on Indeed, Monster, Career Builder, and the only one I ever got a response from, and interviews with was ZipRecruiter. I have been in an office/customer service environment for the last 10 years, but not sales. All the interviews and phone calls were from companies wanting sales....until the week before last. Front Desk Receptionist with a company not too far from me, so I jumped right on it and applied, along with a few other Administrative positions. I received an email from the hiring manager through ZipRecruiter and scheduled the interview for the next day, Wednesday. I show up at least 5 minutes early and there were people in front of me, and people interviewing after me were already showing up. The interview itself was nerve rattling because I was doing all the talking, asking all the questions. I sent him a thank you note through ZipRecruiter and he replied that I would know something by Friday, as he had more people to interview Thursday. The negative thoughts started creeping in.....around 4pm Thursday he called and asked if I had thought anymore about the position, to which I replied "when can I start?" Last week was my first week there and I still have to keep pinching myself to make sure it's not a dream. I know it's not all going to be perfect, but I find myself wanting to do my absolute best because so far, it's one of the best places I have worked in. So even when you feel yourself getting discouraged and depressed, just keep on fighting. I'm not young, I'm in my 40's and it's a reality check when you have to get out there in the job hunt again.

I totally agree with you, I know what that’s like. Getting back into the hunt can be very taxing on you. When you start to feel discouraged or depressed it’s always good to say a prayer. I’ve found that it will relax you

Interviewers look for things that make you stand out from the rest (other than work history, skills, etc. ) They like when you ask questions, it amplifies your interest. Plus, the fact that you sent a thank you also means something. Somewhere along the way, I was told to always follow up with a thank you , it could mean the difference of you getting the job over someone else. Congratulations and good luck with your new position!!
