There are personal assistants, and then there are celebrity personal assistants. Have you ever wondered what it is like to work for the likes of Reese Witherspoon, John Travolta or, ugh, Britney Spears?
How to become an assistant of celebrities is a common question asked in the Entertainment section of Yahoo Answers. I guess a lot of people are enticed with the prospect of hobnobbing with famous people. Me, I’d love to see them in person but definitely not as an assistant, especially given the 24/7-always-on-call-job as an assistant.
But if this is something that you’d like to get into, there are three ways for finding employment as a celebrity assistant:
- Know someone who knows someone – yes, the power of referral is alive and well in Hollywood
- Become a member and search the job board of theAssociation of Celebrity Assistants http://www.celebrityassistants.org/
- Use employment agencies in the LA area.
