How to be a personal assistant to a billionaire

 

Working as a personal assistant to a billionaire is possibly the most desirable job out there.  It may be easier than you think.  The first step to take is to identify what billionaires live in the United States. If you want to work for a billionaire, the Forbes “Rich List” is the best way to identify what billionaires you should target.

 

There are over 1,200 billionaires in the world today, and about 400 of those in the United States.  Just think of all the opportunities for administrative assistants, office managers, personal assistants and estate managers.  The good news is that being a personal assistant for the rich doesn’t require a prestigious degree from a university.  In fact, most celebrity personal assistants don’t have a college degree.

 

After you have identified what billionaires live in your area, send them your resume and cover letter.  Explain to them why you feel that your qualifications will fit their needs.  The good news is that you may just be the one they are looking for.  Billionaires often have unlisted jobs, also known as the “hidden job market”.  If they are looking to replace an existing assistant, having your resume on file may be of good use.
