What are some of the jobs/positions you've had?

I was just thinking about how my life could have been if I had made different career choices....

Here's some of the things I've done (included some interesting things in HS and College)
- Restaurant hostess
- Babysitter
- Retail sales
- Librarian
-Major's Youth Forum (project for high-risk teens...never thought of myself as one but we did qualify since mom was single w 5 children and we lived in the gvmt housing)
-Youth Court Lawyer (held real cases for 1st time offender, fought for client's "community service hrs" juvenile detention etc...thought I might want to be a trail lawyer)
- Commission on the Status of Women board member (my political phase in HS)
- Intern at WB Warner Bro. in NYC (This is the route I have most regret/curious. Wondered if I would have made it if pursue it. All the broadcasting major drooled over it and it was handed to me. One of the producers took a liking to me - sd I could be the next "Connie Chung")
- Intern at shrink office (have a major in psych but didn't want to be one)
- Au Pair (took care of triplets in Paris)
- Telemarketer (yeah, I know you hate those calls...that's why I'm nice to them. Its a hard job.)
- Inside sales rep/ manager
- Sales rep/manager for high tech
- 1st level IT support (desktop)
- Program Manager
- Pharmaceutical Rep
- Administrative assistance
- Dir of Preschool
- Commission Analyst
Now I am a Sales Compensation Analyst
