become PERSONAL Shopper...diploma needed?

I have a good friend, who adores to shop, and is BRILLIANT at finding bargains and putting together very chic outfits for any event, or for daily business life. Does she have to have a degree or qualification to do this?

Diploma in what, shopping?

I reckon any relevant experience or qualifications would help set her apart.... after all, there must be thousands of women in Zurich who adore shopping and are reasonably good at it.... but as far as I know there's no official requirement.

Re: become PERSONAL Shopper...diploma needed?

i guess things like personality and how she gets on with people might be a big factor.

i've been approached by some personal shoppers recently and for me, an immediate filter was qualifications - there are plenty of women who would enjoy shopping no your credit card, so a qualification from a top art/fashion school was a must for me and i also was interested to see what designs the person themselves have made and also what they were wearing.

I thought this was you Phil, now I know for sure it was. You must give me the number of your people and my people will call them.

I guess she can do so for her own, her friends and/or clients pleasure and even charge something for it if she wants to.

Otherwise have a look at the link (sorry not available in English yet) of this "Relooker & Counsellor" I know here in Neuchâtel and see what her qualifications are.
She charges a 100.- CHF for an hour of that kind of shopping just to give you an idea.

Re: become PERSONAL Shopper...diploma needed?

We are in jokes & funnies now right.

I'd love to type more but, my online masters thesis in tea making and dog walking won't finish itself.

Re: become PERSONAL Shopper...diploma needed?

Could your friend nip out and get me a pint of milk, the Saturday Pink and a four-pack of Carling? And don't forget the crisps.

Cheers,
Nick

Re: become PERSONAL Shopper...diploma needed?

I have been wiping my ar$e for some time now and can generally quite well.
I wondered if people might like me show them how to wipe their bums for a fee.
Do I need a qualification to show them?
