Ask the Readers: What Was Your First Paying Job?
Editor's Note: Congratulations to Michael, Deb, and Kristen for winning this week's contest!
For a lot of young of people, their first job comes with a bunch of other firsts: the thrill of the first paycheck, the first time they have "real world" responsibilities, their first forays into work politics, etc. Whether the experience was good or bad, the first paying job is, to many, a marker for adulthood.
