I have an interview tomorrow at a dental office for a receptionist position. I have no prior office/receptionist experience. I do have 5 years of retail experience from a department store (so I am rich in interpersonal and customer service skills). I have a 62 wpm and four years of Spanish under my belt. How difficult would it be for me to attain this job. Also, any interview tips since I have no prior experience? Thanks in advance!

If you speak Spanish fluently, then you should have little problems getting into a medical or dental practice in which they want someone to be bilingual, especially if it's an office where they're willing to train someone.
