    at what age?

    My first job at 16 was in a clothing store as a salesperson. Loved the job...especially being a girl, 16 and surrounded by clothes.

Super good jobs for only being 16, met lots of people in high places that gave great references!

    I had a summer job in France after my high school graduation with my friends.The two of us had a job in the cafe and our other friend was working in a night club.
    Her job was great for us,we had all the free drinks (and bartenders :lol: ) we asked for! :happydance:

    And not even a month later I moved to Willimstown for college and got a job in the bookstore I work in today.

    My first proper job was when I was 18 as a Turkish- English translator, packed it in as well because they wouldnt pay me! But in high school, other students used to pay me to have photocopies of my notebook because I used to write down everything the teachers said LOL I was a geek! :) Now I am the administrator of a language school, and Im loving it!

    I was a paper girl - 13 years old and £5 a day! Rip off! lol

    I quit at 16 to do waitress work, not great at just £3 an hour, but much better than £5 per 3-4 hour rounds!
