What was your first job? The first one you got paid for doing, by someone other than your parents.
If you count summer jobs, my first was as a lab assistant at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation. I mostly took care of the research animals, feeding, watering, and cleaning cages for rats, mice, guinea pigs, and chicks. Sometimes I helped the lab techs weigh the animals, or measure and weigh stuff for projects they were working on.
My first full-time (not summer) job after I graduated was as a bank teller where I’d worked the previous summer. But that only lasted until I got married and the huz and I moved from Oklahoma City back to Norman so he could attend law school. The J-school director hooked me up with the publisher of the Norman newspaper and my mommy-track career was born in the Norman Transcript‘s advertising department.
