Some short-term, on-the-job training takes place, but no prior job experience is necessary for entry into this field. Advancement includes stepping into management roles or becoming a higher level assistant such as an executive assistant.

Receptionist Switchboard Job Market

According to recent statistics, the job market for switchboard receptionists is expected to decrease by 13 percent by 2022. The decrease in job openings is due to the increased use of automated telecommunications systems as well as outsourcing of these jobs to overseas markets.
