  • 25 is LATE in life? They are just getting out of college at that age so that's when young people begin their career.

  • I didn't start until then really...I mean I had some off and on job, but, not actual working full-time for a longtime.

  • Why do you consider that late in life? They've just graduated from college, correct? They've got nearly 40 years until retirement at that point, so I would say 25 is fairly EARLY.

  • YES 25 IS LATE IN LIFE FOR A FIRST JOB-- When I was 16 I became a certified nursing assistant and worked almost every weekend and after school, I work 40+hours a week, I made as much money as my mother did, and my senior year in high school I work two jobs one at a nursing home and one at a group home, and saved 10k, as well as bought a car,and spent money like it was coming out my a**. Every kid should get a job at age 16 and work till through school it teaches responsability and how to pay bills and how to save money before you get in the real world and screw it all up.
    As well as good job skills.
