Worked a few years for a GC in Indiana PA then went the self employed route also as a GC and Cabinetmaker.. These days the employees are gone, so I've just cut back to HVAC service.

My first official "job" other than mowing lawns was tending 10 acres of nursery stock. Chopping weeds, cultivating with a couple different tractors and trimming and pruning the trees. My last was at the end of 34 years of teaching.

My father was an electricians mate on the aircraft carrier Randolph.
So guess what he taught me.

My grandfather served WW 1 & WW2 and came home and become a master cabinet maker and carpenter.

Through and after high school I worked for a moving company. Could tell you all about how people live their lives. Computer science in college. Quit after two and a half years to work as an electricians helper traveling and make some money. Never went back and wound up married with kids. Landed on an industrial site and stayed for 28 years. Made it to superintendent for the last ten years. Still hold electrical contractors licenses in seven states for the company I work for. Currently performing thermography on electrical and mechanical industrial equipment. Hope to retire in six years. I’m 61 now.

I grew up on a cattle ranch so the first job out of high school was the same job I had when learned how to walk. Ranching. I was an equine hoof rehabilitation specialist at retirement and had done that since 1976. Retired in 2018.

Various part time jobs like pizza delivery, etc while I was supposed to be attending college. Flunked out for not going to class. Did a few years as a police officer in a small town then worked in oil field in West Texas for a few years. Ended up going back to college and actually went to class. I got my degree and spent the next 34 1/2 years working as a computer programmer then analyst and then manager in the IT department for a defense contractor. I will be retiring 29 October after a good career in IT.

My first real job was as a "hod carrier" on a construction site. I was still in high school. Then I got my high school schedule arranged so my last period was study hall, and I had a full time job working 2ns shift at an aluminum extruding plant. Tried college, just wasn't for me, so I enlisted in USN rather than get drafted to go to the Nam. The Navy taught me to be an electronics technician, but they also discovered that I was a pretty good tennis player, so that's pretty much how I spent my twenty one years in the Navy. After the body broke down I got really good at electronics repair, went to work for Hewlett Packard and that's what I was doing when I retired a year ago.
