Leo is well-suited to any career in which assertiveness, charm, and warmth are important for success.
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.
The following careers are well suited to engaging Leo:
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.
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.
3. Goldsmith or Jeweller
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.
No one can roar like the Lion, and so this career makes good sense for an outgoing talker 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 more private life.
Being sexy, charming, and vocal is right up Leo's alley. This position could suit one's vanity and need for attention. Speak for and showcase products and services you believe in for the best success. All types of offerings are not only acceptable to Leo, but needed as much as clean air or food.
6. 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.
7. 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.
The Lion has a weird fascination with hair. They can be excessively preoccupied 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.
9. 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."
10. 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.
