30 jobs in the PR and marketing world

Do you ever wonder what some of our world’s leaders did before they held such important political positions? Find out, and then check out our roundup of current job openings.

Do you know what Justin Trudeau did before becoming prime minister of Canada?

How about George Weah, president of Liberia?

Trudeau was a teacher, and Weah was a professional soccer player (footballer, for our European audience) with A.C. Milan.

Many people are well aware of Donald Trump’s first career before becoming president of the United States (real estate professional, for those don’t remember), but you’re probably not as well versed in the first positions the rest of the world’s leaders held in their professional lives.

CashNetUSA recently posted its list of “The First Jobs of World Leaders” to help boost your knowledge.

Military- and education-based professions were the most popular, with 34 world leaders having worked in these areas.  On the other hand, only one leader has worked in the following professional fields: “math and science,” “economics,” “not for profit,” “religion and spirituality,” “service” and “social sciences.”

Here are a few interesting first jobs: Guatemala’s Jimmy Morales started out as a comedian, Mongolia’s Khaltmaagiin Battulga was a professional wrestler and Afghanistan’s Ashraf Ghani is a former anthropology professor.

See all the interactive continent maps here, to find out where 197 of the world’s leaders started their professional lives.
