The Different Office Jobs You Can Apply For

One advantage of an office job is that it typically has regular work days and hours. As a single or married working parent, having a work schedule that parallels your children’s school schedule makes it easier on you and the children. Most office jobs include a standard workweek from Monday to Friday that starts at 8 or 9 a.m. and lasts until 4 or 5 p.m. Most office jobs require basic skills such as typing, filing and writing, and experience with office equipment and computers. Upper level office jobs typically require a college education or even advanced degrees.

Receptionist Office Jobs on My Job Space

If you like talking to people, the receptionist position might be a good choice. As a receptionist, you answer the phone and respond to customer inquiries or needs.

Most company receptionists also handle other tasks that might include scheduling conference rooms, managing and ordering office supplies or opening and distributing company mail.
