I babysat from the time I was 15 until I graduated HS, my senior year in HS I worked as an afternoon receptionist at a real estate company as part of my business program I was in.  (School half a day, work the other half), after graduation I worked at a Hallmark store in the local mall

I worked the summer between my jr and sr year full time as a secretary at a place my dad had worked at. I got a job at a restaurant a month before I graduated hs.

Age 13+: Sitting. Mostly for the next door neighbors. Pretty solid gig of most Sat nts.

Age 16:Snyders clerk, pink long shirt, stocking shelves, manning the cash register  I remember the nt b4 my first shift I was nervously practicing making change, as the machines did not do this for you back then).

Age 17: KFC counter clerk, greasy polyester brown uniform. Ugg. Only good thing that came out of that job was my dating one of the fry cooks.

6 bad months age 18: Nursing home nurse's aide. Depressing and kind of gross job. Ironic that I got a BSN.

College on campus: Dorm front desk (got paid to study, good gig), and dorm cafeteria worker.

Summer after freshman and sophomore yr of college, GS camp counselor, lifeguard/riding camp. Fun fun fun.

I worked in an Ice Cream Shop one summer!  Most of the customers were surfers.....I was in Heaven.    Next, I worked for an Insurance agency, making appointments and answering phones.    At 17, I began working for a Plumbing Company, answering phones.   That was the best job, ever!   I worked there for 6 years.
