Executive assistants that work for the richest 1% are going to be constantly challenged in ways they never thought possible.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 10, 2013
Headhunter to the Stars Brian Daniel is the founder of The Celebrity Personal Assistant Network and is now revealing insider information in his new recruiter blog, which includes the debunking of job myths when working for the high net worth.
While it’s true that working for the super-rich does have benefits, Daniel is shedding light on what many consider a dream job. Flying on private jets, running errands in a Ferrari and staying in the world’s best hotels are just some of the job perks that come with being a Lifestyle Manager – but there are also drawbacks.
Daniel shares in his blog that working 12-hour days, 6 days a week are par of the course. Not even counting, of course, the unimaginable pressure that comes with the job. “The demands of billionaires are unrivaled," says Daniel. "Executive assistants that work for the richest 1% are going to be constantly challenged in ways they never thought possible.” In short, moving mountains everyday requires out of the box problem-solving.
In our overly-competitive world where job ads can receive 1000 or 2000 candidate submissions, the best personal assistant jobs are not easy to come by. While it’s true that the positions are not easy to obtain, there are more opportunities than ever before since there are about 50,000 U.S. households with net worth between 50 and 500 million dollars – not counting the 1000 billionaires.
And those prestigious positions are not just in Los Angeles and New York City. High net worth families live throughout the United States in every corner. LA and NYC only have about 50 billionaires between them, so the other 48 states are wide open for opportunity – if you know how to penetrate the hidden job market.
Changing careers in this down market has also caused many seasoned executive assistants to switch to becoming a full-time personal assistant, which usually requires working in a home office as opposed to a corporate environment.
