    After reading andrea's post I started thinking about my first job....and then wondered what everyone else did. So what was your first job???


    My first real one was for the YMCA, started reffing soccer when I was 16, now I ref soccer, ump tball, scorekeep basketball,baseball,and softball. Pays well and hours are few...not bad to keep my first job for 5 years I guess :lol:

    My first job was at Miller's Outpost working the dressing rooms when I was 16. That lasted just long enough for me to convince the guy at the local Ritz Camera that I was the right person to run their brand new 1 hour mini lab. It didn't take me long to figure out how to operate the damn thing but it took me a couple of hours to figure out how to change the paper roll. :lol:

    My first paying job? Erm, cash-in-hand and £50 an hour. No, not that! But it was still technically illegal.

    My first job was babysitting, after that I worked at a nursing home as a waitress, then as a housekeeping person in an assisted living home (lets just say older men don't aim well :er:), then at an insurance company, a photography store and I'm currently a life insurance underwriter and photographer :D

    first paying job? hmmm.... web designing... 3 years ago... I desiged a web page and then I wrote a code to it. Then the business spread and I had alot of work. But then I had to quit coz I had my exams and didn't have enough time for coding. Now I'm a ebglish/polish interpreter for a Danish guy who works here :)

    I scrubbed floors at a doctor's office.

    I'm now in medical practice management, so you could say I learned the biz from the ground up. :mrgreen:

    Pool Boy - Worked at a private pool & recreation club in the summers when I was 14. Basically I had to constantly hose down the concret around the pool, weed, pickup trash and any other jobs they came up with.
