10 – 17: Screenwriter: You’re rocking English, love creating cool stories and like the idea of being able to work in your pyjamas – you could well be the next Diablo Cody! Make sure to keep writing every day – that’s the key to success.

18 – 25: Stylist: Get paid to dress fabulous people all day? Yes please! You’re a fashion-conscious babe who worships Patricia Field and is ahead of all the trends. You love finding a bargain and could definitely get a job planning pretty outfits for pretty people in LA!

26 – 33: Publicist: A publicist is someone who manages the star’s career as far as getting word out about what they’re doing and managing any, ahem, slip-ups. It’s the best possible job for a professional people-person who loves being in the know. You have to be willing to work 24/ 7 to create the goss!

34 – 40: Producer: You’re a serious power-players who love doing deals and wants to be in charge of the whole she-bang – whatever that is! Producers make serious dosh but also work very hard, and are in charge of overseeing the whole shoot. Start by producing the short films being made by the aspiring directors in your neighbourhood.

About Georgia

I'm a young adult novelist with a weakness for hot nerds and cheese platters, not necessarily in that order. I am currently working on my third novel. I'm pretty excited about having just turned 30 because it means I can justify spending a lot of time thinking about homewares.
