What your #firstsevenjobs say about you
A simple question posed by Twitter use @mariancall has started what has become our favourite trend: #firstsevenjobs. What were your first seven jobs? And what does that say about you?
It may have started as a simple question, but it didn’t take long before celebrities started weighing in on how they got their start. Everything from dish washer to babysitter seems to have made the list, and it’s offered some great insight into the beginnings of some beloved celebrities.
There are a few things you will quickly realize browsing through the feed: no two paths are the same, everyone needs to start somewhere, and you never know where you can end up. To that end, Workopolis has just released Job Insider, a handy tool that gives you an inside look at different jobs, and where they might lead.
Check out how these celebrities got their start:
