You're reading: Not all rosy jobs are glamorous

Katya Orekhova, an exuberant 30-year-old, has a job that many fashionistas probably dream about: she gets paid to help clients shop. But what she didn’t know when she decided to become a personal shopper about four years ago is that she would have to tame people’s difficult personalities and sometimes babysit others.

“Often people are tempted by the superficial image of a certain career they think would suit them better,” says Olesya Putina, managing recruiter from Recruit Alliance agency. She explains that there isn’t an ideal profession: emotional or physical “side effects” are present in all jobs.

Most of Orekhova’s clients are 35-40 year old women, who have the means, yet, lack either the time or stylistic ability to refresh their wardrobe. Typically, Orekhova takes them to Kyiv’s finest shops, but occasionally flies exceptionally affluent clients to Milan, Paris and London for the latest collections.
