Want to be able to say you work for someone famous? No need to put yourself through the 24/7 schedule and crazy demands that come with being a personal assistant. Plenty of celebs are entrepreneurs on the side and have founded or become part owners of thriving corporate ventures. We’ve rounded up a list of 10 celebrities who are hiring right now. While you may not actually rub elbows with these stars in the office every day, at least you’ll be able to brag about who your boss is!
Jessica Alba — In 2011, the Golden Globe-nominated actress and mother of two co-founded The Honest Company, which offers affordable, nontoxic products for families with infants and young children. The Los Angeles-based company is currently looking for a human resources manager to help “shape the HR and culture function” at Honest.
Martha Stewart — Despite her prison stint almost a decade ago, Stewart’s homemaking empire has shown no signs of slowing down. Ten new jobs have been added to her website in the past month, with positions in everything from marketing and sales to art and editorial.
Will Ferrell — It makes sense that an actor known for his "Saturday Night Live" sketches and off-the-wall comedies is one of the people behind comedy video site FunnyOrDie.com. The website is currently looking to upgrade its platform and rebuild it from scratch, and they’re looking for a Rails engineer to help them do just that.
Justin Timberlake — The former *NSYNC heartthrob and singer/actor purchased MySpace back in 2011 and revamped the faltering social network. While the only current job openings are sales positions in Germany, this might be an excellent opportunity for anyone looking for an extreme change of scenery.
Sammy Hagar — Little-known fact about the Red Rocker: he founded the Cabo Wabo Tequila brand and restaurant chain, with establishments in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; Stateline, Nev.; and the Las Vegas Strip. According to Indeed, the Stateline location has several server and host positions available now.
Ellen DeGeneres — Details on Ellen’s internship program are pretty vague, but evidently it’s not hard to apply: all you need to provide is your name, contact information and your “story” in 1,500 characters or less. Loyola Marymount University student Julie Kogura shared her experience as an intern for anyone interested in learning more about it.
Ted Turner — Billionaire media mogul Turner owns CNN, Turner Entertainment and TNT, among other major entertainment and news networks. His companies have so many available positions that there’s an entire website, turnerjobs.com, dedicated to helping you work for them.
Dr. Dre — Beats by Dr. Dre is the artist/producer’s joint venture with Interscope Records chairman Jimmy Iovine. The company, which produces a line of headphones and sound systems, lists more than 60 available positions in New York, Los Angeles, London, Ireland and China on their careers page.
Victoria Beckham — “Posh Spice” certainly lived up to her name: the British singer and model has designed several lines of denim, sunglasses, fragrances, handbags and jewelry. The high-end fashion brand appears to always have its doors open to potential hires, noting on the website that all human resources inquiries should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bobby Flay — The Food Network star and grill master owns several restaurant chains with locations across the country, including Mesa Grill, Bar Americain and Bobby’s Burger Palace. There’s probably always room for a fry cook at a Burger Palace, but if you want a restaurant job with a little more prestige, apply for a chef or managerial position at Bobby Flay Steak at The Borgata in Atlantic City, N.J.
