I was talking with my little cousin last night, and he told me he's looking for his #FirstJob - exciting, right?! He was asking for advice and wanted to know my opinion on where he should work.
My advice to him was:
- Stay confident
- Ask questions
- Be early
- Work hard
It got me thinking about where I've been since joining the workforce. I now work as a Community Specialist here at Jobcase - but it was quite a journey to get here!!
I started babysitting at age 12 for family friends. But, my first job that wasn't an
under the table gig was as a birthday party host at a laser tag arena.
It was such a fun job, and I learned so much. To this day, I'm still friends with a few folks from there!
