For anyone who’s ever looked at Kylie Jenner‘s Instagram and wondered what it would be like to work for her, Victoria Villarroel Gamero, Jenner’s assistant and friend, is clearing up those questions.
In a video shared on Jenner’s official website and titled “What It’s Like To By My Assistant,” Gamero goes into how she got the coveted job as assistant to one of the most famous women in the world and the amount of work that goes into her daily routine. But before we go into any details whatsoever, the most important thing Gamero reveals is how she got the job in the first place: connections.
Gamero says that before she started working for the youngest Kardashian/Jenner sister, she worked for Kris’ company first. “Five years ago, I started working at her mom’s company [Kardashian Jenner] Communications and I would see Kylie there all the time,” she explains, before adding that she eventually snagged the position as Jenner’s assistant by standing out. “It’s funny, I saved my number in her phone as Victoria the Princess. I was very confident back then.”
She continues, “A year ago, I was looking for a job and she needed someone so they just took me. And she still had me saved as Victoria the Princess.”
Now, we don’t condone leaving your number in prospective boss’s phones as Princess (actually… we think HR might seriously frown upon that), but if you want to stand out from the crowd, you need to do something a bit out of the ordinary.
Despite the immediate job offer, Gamero had an awkward first day, just like the rest of us. She described walking into Jenner’s house on her first day of work and not being able to understand a word she said (lolz). After asking her to repeat herself several times, Jenner finally told her to forget it and Gamero thought she blew it. But not long after, Jenner told her new assistant some of her deepest secrets in a serious bonding session.
As expected, Gamero became so immersed in Jenner’s life that the two have become best friends. Jenner was even there when Gamero’s boyfriend proposed earlier this month. She says that while the position is a 24/7 job, it’s fun and she loves it. However, if you’re not open to a 3am call from your boss, we suggest you take your career ambitions elsewhere.
