Top Ten Careers for Leo

Top Ten Careers for Leo - Ruled by the Sun, Leo needs a job in which he or she can shine. Being in the spotlight
doesn't hurt, either!

Leo is well-suited to any career in which assertiveness, charm, and warmth are important for

The Lion is the most outgoing - or at least the most confident - employee on staff. Some
Leos are quiet and unassuming, but possess an inner strength that is magnificent. They are
not temperamentally suited to a job where there is no personal interaction. They need to be
on the go and busy, or they will become easily bored. Leos prefer a career that allows them
to look and feel important, and a good paycheck doesn't hurt! Goal-oriented and
competitive, they usually are well-known and liked within their chosen field.
Leos need to have goals to meet, an expense account or perks, and the opportunity to
shine. They are motivated by flattery and recognition and will do anything to get it. Lions
aren't known for staying in one place too long and will tend to change careers or move
around a lot. They are very good at manipulating others to achieve their goals, in both
positive and negative ways.

The following careers are well suited to engaging Leo:

Actor:Always grabbing attention, Leo loves to be center stage. Whether in the public eye or the
life of the party, the Lion will entertain and engage everyone around him or her. Leos can
easily express themselves and take on other personalities. Naturally dramatic, they seek to
grab the spotlight, sometimes even to the point of making others virtually invisible.

Cardiologist:Leo has a lot of heart, but can also specialize in working with patients who have cardiac
trouble. They have a talent for understanding this major vital organ and its supporting cast of
arteries and the circulatory system. It's no accident that the operating room is sometimes
called a theatre and that the heart surgeon becomes the star player. It takes guts and
confidence to specialize in this area.
Goldsmith:Gold is the metal of the Sun, and by extension, Leo has an affinity for working with and
owning it. This craft requires an understanding of the properties of the metal and an eye
toward bringing out the beauty inherent in it. Sometimes Leo can be all about flash and trying
to impress others, but when Leo people turn their hand to this art form, they are able to
express their inner truth.

Publicist:No one can roar like the Lion, and so this career makes good sense for an outgoing big
mouth like Leo. Whether they are sending out press releases or maintaining rumor control,
Leo is just the person to make sure the right people get informed. This is a great career,
because they get to work in the public eye without actually becoming a celebrity. This works
well for shyer Leos who prefer to maintain a private life.

Spokesmodel:Being sexy, charming, and vocal is right up Leo's alley. As long as she's attractive and takes
care of herself, this position could be available to her and would suit perfectly her excessive
vanity and need for attention. Having her hair and makeup done and having a stylist is a
dream come true. Depending on the product or service, this could be positive or negative
attention. All types of products are not only acceptable to Leo, but needed as much as
clean air or nourishing food.

Theatrical Agent:This is a perfect career for outgoing Leo. The Lion has a unique understanding of the acting
profession and loves to facilitate and organize. Just being a part of the entertainment
industry makes Leo quiver with delight. Negotiating with casting agents and interacting with
actors would be an exciting prospect to a Leo. This career allows them to use their skill in
representing the interests of artists and identifying which person on the roster is the best for
the audition.

Reality-Show Personality:This is not really a career, but if you ask someone who has participated, you might get a
different take on it. There is potential, however, to do endorsements and end up on game
shows and other entertainment venues. Whether these people actually have any talent for
acting is on a case-by-case basis. The main skill needed here is the ability to take 15
minutes of fame and make it last a year.

Hairdresser:The Lion has a weird fascination with hair. They are excessively vain about their own
tresses, but would happily work with others. Leo hairdressers win a lot of hair competitions,
where the most dramatic look is the ultimate winner. Leos do well in the salon, because they
are able to cultivate a look and a persona that gets attention. They keep their clients
entertained and flattered, as well as beautifully coiffed.

Sales Consultant:Leo loves change and variety, as well as the opportunity to work with the public. This makes
him or her an excellent sales person, whether behind the retail counter, doing business
development, or on the road with a product line. Lions will maximize their commissions by
charming the pants off their customers. Using a unique mix of body language and fast
talking, they are able to dance around the most serious reservations and arrive at "yes."

Motivational Speaker:If inspiration or a little kick in the rear is needed for motivation, then Leo is a godsend. They
have a natural talent for getting people all fired up and ready for action. Some may see this
as bossy and overbearing, but not in this context. Channeling that effusive energy in into
something positive is a dream job for our roaring Lion. Leo has no problem being on a
platform or telling anyone what to and where to go for success.
