Find out how other people went about finding their first job.
Whether it’s as a cashier at a chain store or delivering the morning paper, landing your first job can be a daunting task. And while there are plenty of tips and tricks we could offer, sometimes what helps most is to hear how others landed their first job.
We asked our social media followers to share the stories of how they landed their first jobs. Here are some of our favorites:
“I got my very first job through family. My cousin, brother and friends I grew up with ending up all working at Jersey Mike’s together. And then my first “grown up” job with benefits was through a temp agency that got me on with a bank that hired me on permanently when I was 18. Ended up working for them for 10 years.” – Dana Wells Harrell
