New Book Provides an Insight into Becoming a Celebrity Personal Assistant

Share Article

Celebrities, direct movies, star on television shows, write books, play sports and run giant corporations, so they are left with very little time to make dinner reservations, shop for birthday gifts, pick up the dry cleaning, and answer the telephone. That's where a personal assistant comes in. It's a great job for people who want a glimpse at how the truly fabulous live. It's also a great way to break into glamour professions because of the many of the contacts you make — not the dry cleaner, necessarily, but many of the others — will be invaluable.

In Beyond the Red Carpet: Keys to Becoming a Successful Personal Assistant, author, Dionne Muhammad, provides those seeking to become an assistant to the stars with the requisite information to be triumphant. This 120-page career training guide also serves as a continuing education resource for current celebrity assistants and lifestyle managers. The unique concept of this book also provides a few real-life vignettes as told by “assistants” working with some of the country’s most high-profile entertainers.

Dionne’s book will teach you:

•    How to get started in a PA Career

•    Characteristics needed for Success

•    Effective Networking

•    How to work with Staffing Agencies

•    Resume Preparation

•    Top Interview Questions
