A woman who had 23 jobs by the age of 23 has put together some top tips for starting a career based on her vast experience.
Anastasia Cechetto, 23, has been a baker, model, SEO specialist, and ice cream vendor, to name a few, and believes one of her greatest strengths is her versatility.
She hasn’t excelled in every role and openly admits she’s jumped on some before being pushed – but insists she’s learned from all of them.
Now Anastasia is on her 23rd job, having founded her own company, Ace Influencers, and made her CEO before her 23rd birthday – and now she’s shared her top tips on how to advance in your career.
What do you think of Anastasia’s impressive career? Let us know in the comments…
Anastasia, who lives in London, said: “In the beginning I was a baker, it was very difficult – I had to stand in the freezer a lot. I was 16 and I was completely inexperienced, I messed up so much they did me at the checkout.
“I learned so much from each and every one of them, the tougher jobs like washing dishes and waitressing taught me discipline and I respect the people who do those jobs.
“People are under a lot of pressure to make quick decisions about what they want to do – but I just went with what was right at the time and gained experience in the process.”
By the time she turned 18, Anastasia was a baker, supermarket cashier, waitress, shop assistant, dishwasher, piano teacher, and market vendor, and she says she was “a terrible employee, but she’s never been fired in my life” because “I always left just before I was.” “.
Then she became an event organizer, which was “quite fun at times” but not for her, so she quit and started selling ice cream at a zoo in Amsterdam – “Too cold for my taste. Getting free entry to the zoo was pretty cool though.”
Until she was 18, she worked in retail and supplemented her income with acting, modeling and babysitting.
Anastasia spoke four languages, English, Russian, Dutch and Italian, and then became a translator and a clerk in a photo shop until she retired in 2021.
She then became a personal trainer until she was 23, teaching fitness classes for a nearby gym before taking a break to try her hand at being a social media manager.
Around the same time, she tried her hand at being a barista at a vegan business, “who knew it was so hard to make latte art?” and then quit both jobs to become a social media manager.
She said: “I can’t believe I got a managerial job back then. I used tons of Google, YouTube and other resources to get good at this job. This job has taught me a lot.”
She went on to become a content writer, SEO specialist, freelance social media manager and online personal trainer – “I loved this business but I’ve outgrown it. It taught me a lot about running a business, but I was ready to move on to something bigger.”
Anastasia was soon the creative director for a luxury hotel, “a great job” — but ultimately not for her as she wanted to be her own boss, so she founded Ace Influencers and became CEO before she turned 23.
She continued, “Maybe people get stuck because they’re so deep into something that it can be difficult for people to pull away.
“You have to follow your heart, I think, if you feel like something isn’t for you, don’t be afraid to try something else — don’t be afraid to follow your dreams.”
Anastasia said that she often got jobs she wasn’t qualified for, like SEO specialist and content creator, and that she learned what she wanted to do by trying many things.
She said, “I’m a fast learner. Often you have to make an effort and I would learn or research how to do these things at work – I would try to learn from websites and YouTube and then when I was at work I would try to ask questions and get things done.
“I was terrible at waitstaff and baking, but I was pretty good at producing content.
“Through all these jobs, I realized that having freedom and getting real results was important to me, and that can be challenging when you work for a company.”
When Anastasia realized she wanted to work for herself, she thought about her strengths and decided to start a marketing agency – drawing on her time as a content producer.
