What Are the Best Jobs for Meeting Celebs?
Life in the celebrity fast lane looks like it could be fun, but unless you’ve got your own reality TV show in the pipework, have a secret hit single hidden away or are about to star in the next big blockbuster, stardom isn’t something that’s in the cards for most of us. But, that doesn’t mean that its completely impossible to have a taste of the celebrity lifestyle. In fact, there are many different jobs or business opportunities which could provide you with a way to get in on the action.
Working as a security guard is one of the best ways to meet celebrities. Whether you work security in a club that is frequented by the rich and famous or even have a security position at a shop or store, there’s definitely a chance that you will meet someone famous whether they are out having a drink or appearing at a book signing or meet-and-greet. If you want to go one step further, you could even start your own security firm — celebrities always need somebody there to make sure that they are safe! If you are considering starting a security business, it can be quite easy to get started providing that you have an up-to-date SIA badge and provide your guards with certified body armour such as stab vests to ensure that they’re protected from any potential harm.
If security isn’t up your street and you’d rather be in on the gentler, less chaotic side of things then being a celebrity child nanny could be the way to go for you. With more and more celebrities choosing to start a family while still in the midst of their career, the demand for qualified, trustworthy people to look after celebrity children in order to free up their parents’ time for other things is growing. Specific tasks tend to be set by each family, but tend to include helping with dressing, meal times and playing. Of course, you’ll need to have experience with childcare and be fully background checked to be considered.
One of the best things about being a celebrity is that you rarely ever have to do anything that you don’t want to, you simply pay somebody else to do it for you. Behind every successful celebrity is a hard-working personal assistant who’s taking care of all the details and making sure that everything gets done, such as paying bills, returning phone calls and shopping. The life of a personal assistant may well be a busy one, but it’s definitely worth it if you want to get up close and personal with the celebrity lifestyle.
The media is never kind to celebrities if they have a less-than-perfect physique, which is why many of them spend hours each week training with a personal trainer to ensure that they stay in top shape. If you are passionate about health and fitness, becoming a top personal trainer could be your key to the celebrity lifestyle, giving you the chance to take credit for some amazing figures.
