THE KARDASHIANS haven’t always lived a life of reality TV stardom, private jets, and multi-million dollar businesses.

Let’s take a look at the jobs that Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe had before they became famous.

Although she is now a billionaire beauty mogul, Kim, 41, got her first taste of fame by clearing out the closets of Hollywood celebrities.

With clients including Nicole Richie, Paris Hilton, Serena Williams, Cindi Crawford, and Kenny G, she organized their closets and would sell their unwanted items on eBay.

Kim was still merely dreaming of her own reality show when she then landed her position as a personal stylist for singer-songwriter and her best friend Brandy.

The would-be star was thrown into the deep end, revealing during her first ever E! interview in 2006: “I’d never assisted a stylist before, I never went to school for it, I never really knew what the job entailed.

“I just kind of blew it off and we’d always shop together and one day she called me and was like, ‘Will you be my stylist?’

Kim then appeared on the reality show The Simple Life due to her friendship and working relationship with the program’s stars Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton.

As a result of her connection to Paris, many believe that Kim was a personal assistant to the socialite, but in 2017, she clarified that this was not the case.

Speaking on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, she explained: “I would work with Paris, and I would love to organize and clean out their closets and get rid of all their stuff and sell it on eBay and then shop for them, shop for her. That was my job. I loved it. But people will say ‘assistant.’ They always have it wrong.”

But it was with Paris that Kim learned how to play the fame game.

Talking to Rolling Stone in 2015, she revealed: “We’d go anywhere and everywhere just to be seen… We knew exactly where to go, where to be seen, and how to have something written about you. 

“All you had to do is go to this restaurant, or this party, talk about whatever you want to talk about, and it would be in the paper the next day.”

Kim’s sex tape with her then-boyfriend Ray J would also contribute to the family’s rise in fame, and it became a main storyline during the first season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which premiered in 2007.

The only one of the three sisters to go to college, Kourtney, now 43, studied at  Southern Methodist University in Dallas for two years before she transferred to the University of Arizona, where she majored in theatre arts and minored in Spanish.

However, she failed two classes, and would later admit to US Magazine: “I was too nervous to give speeches.”

Kourtney also applied to law school but decided not to go, before she took on her first real job as a movie production assistant.

“I had to yell ‘cut’ and ‘rolling’ all day,” she told US Magazine.

Kourtney then set up a children’s boutique with her mom Kris Jenner named Smooch.

The mother-daughter pair followed in the footsteps of Kris’ mom Mary Jo Campbell, who owned a similar store in La Jolla, California, for over 30 years.

On a Celebuzz blog, Kourtney reflected: “I used to work in the store all day, every day, stay hours after closing and was obsessed with it… Smooch was my baby!”

However, the E! Star decided to close the boutique in 2009 when she was pregnant with her first child, Mason.

Khloe, 38, graduated high school one year early, leaving her with five years to gain experience before the family’s Dash boutique opened in 2006.

She spent her late teens and early 20s as an assistant to Nicole Richie, whom her sister Kim also worked with.

Reflecting on her old job, Khloe revealed to Emergency Contact podcast: ‘I went to school with her [Nicole]. 

“She was one of my best friends growing up and we were just really, really close and then when she started doing The Simple Life — I think it was after The Simple Life — she just needed some help and I just needed a job.”

Fashion has always been a main interest of Khloe’s, and before she founded her denim company Good American, she played a major role at both of the family’s stores – Dash and Smooch.

As Kris’ youngest daughters, Kylie, 24, and Kendall, 26, grew up in the spotlight of KUWTK fame.

Kendall began modeling aged 13 when she was signed to a major agency, while Kylie launched her first beauty product, a Lip Kit, when she was just 18.
