Dear Miss Know It All,

I am interesting in being a personal assistant or estate manager. How do I get started?  I feel like a new born babe – help!

Dear Newbie,

We all were newbies at one time or another. I look at starting something new as a great adventure! First, do you have any computer and/or clerical background? Are you a college graduate? These things will look great on a resume and weigh heavily in your favor if you are looking to be an assistant. Much of an assistant’s job, actually, is spent sitting at a desk. If you have any concierge or customer service experience, this helps also.
If you feel any of this applies to you, then go to my website and look under the “Resources” page and you will find a list of employment agencies that specialize in placing people as celebrity assistants and/or estate managers.
Good luck!
