    Uhhh, well my first job probably didn’t have an official title. I was a take-your-order-and-money-then-make-change-and-pass-your-lunch-to-you person (Cashier?).

    The first Official title I had was ‘Applications Support’, which basically meant I did any random tech/database tasks they could throw at me with minimal training.

  14. TP:

    Well when I was quite young I was a babysitter, then a waiter for one event, so I don’t suppose that counts. So my first one with a real paycheck (not paper money from babysitting) was when I was a writer/actor. It was pretty sweet 🙂

    Started a coordinating babysitting business at 13 so I guess “entrepreneur”;for cheque vs cash, “swimming instructor”; but best title a few years later? “Johnny Cash Demonstrator” for Canada Trust when they brought in their ATMs and called them “Johnny Cash machines”. Long live the red polyester blazer that went with that position!
