  • I started my first job a week before turning 18 and worked there for 6 months before I moved out-of-state (so my Husband and I could be Together) ..then I got my second job about two months after I turned 20 and worked there for 7 months until my OB told me to quit due to being high-risk (I got Pregnant with my Son after I was there about a month and quit when I was 6 months along). I became a SAHM two days before I turned 21 when We finally got home from the hospital after my Son was Born. So..not much work experience. I am a damn good teacher for my Son, though..He is THE most brilliant Child - but I can't take all the credit, as it just comes naturally for Him.=]

  • I started working when I was 15, had my dd when I was 18. I worked until she was around 9 months old. So maybe 4 yrs?

  • I worked once when I was 15 for like 4 months, and then again for 6 months when I was 17/18. I had my son when I was 19 & chose to continue not working after that. So I didn't even have a year total before I had him. Since he was born I've got another almost two years under my belt, but less than 3 years experience just isn't impressive for a 22 year old! My resume is so patchy - it's no wonder I"m having a hard time finding another job!
