Career Help

Hey!

Asking for a relative as she’s in a pickle and wanted some advice. I said I’d run it by the Sheer Luxe community :slight_smile:

Has anyone got any career/job suggestions for someone who’s very good with people, and essentially someone who is mrs “hostess of the mostess”. She has experience of working in events management and fashion PR, but hasn’t quite found her niche. She’s really well presented and tactful. She likes working under pressure, especially when working at an event, and likes to be amongst “the arts”. I just wondered if anyone had any interesting job suggestions for her to dip her toe in? It doesn’t have to be in fashion, although I do consider her to be creative.

Thanks!

Perhaps a concierge / lifestyle manager? There are lots in the above sectors and if she likes working under pressure this could suit her well with the type of clientele they look after! x

Hey! I’ve been there before. I previously worked in PR and as someone who thrives around people, events, activations, I really enjoy that career route but was looking for something more creative.

I now work as an Account Executive for a branding agency! I’d highly suggest she explore this route. Each day is very different; we serve a wide range of clients (tourism, hospitality, food and bev, fashion) as well. It’s fast paced and we get the opportunity to not only design visual identities and build brands, but also design and develop client campaigns. This role sits between the client and the art team, meaning you can tap into both the business and artist side without having to sit soundly in one avenue.

Additionally, a Brand Marketing Manager is something to research as well. She’d have control over the marketing calendar, ideate event activations, tap into her PR skills through connecting with editors, develop social content - all for one specific brand.

Hope this helps!! Best of luck. It’s a fun adventure! Tell her to just trust her gut :slight_smile:
