No innuendos please lol.

I'm turning 25 this year and I've had 3 casual jobs, one work experience, one undergrad job which lead to me getting a full-time job at that company once I finished Uni.

I've heard that there are people who have had wayyyy more jobs than me when they were 25 so yeah just curious I guess lol.

If you include paperboy, then I've had three. I'm 23 this year.

Feels like more though because I've been transferred a few times and had a few different roles - but 3 companies.

I'm 33, and let's see:

- part time shelf stacker
- part time university tutor
- full time software programmer
- full time software programmer
- full time software programmer/project manager
- full time project manager
- full time project manager

So that makes 7 jobs, 5 full time jobs since I was 19, so 5 different jobs in the last 14 years. Longest I stayed at one job was 6 years. Shortest was 2.5 years (though this one will likely only be 9-12 months total).
 
I'm 33 but had 8 years off as a stay at home Mum. I had a few little part time jobs in high school:

- working in my parents (and family friends) Thai restaurant
- Maccas - for about 6 months only to get some extra cash for an overseas trip at 18. Came back from OS, never returned to Maccas.
- Cheerleading (Brisbane Bandits) and other acrobatic displays at sporting events or corporate functions.
- I've done office temping a few times as well.

Real jobs as an adult:

- Receptionist for a printing firm
- Legal secretary/PA for the QLD Govt (Justice Dept)

Now there's something you don't see to often in a resume! [icon_ee

You should keep reminding your husband what a lucky guy he is! icon_thumbs_u

Besides the cheerleading ones, he was involved in most of those with me.

I actually would never put it down on a resume (how embarassing), but I do include high level competition achievements. Proves hard work and dedication - and is always an interesting topic of conversation in an interview.

Oh yeah my jobs in the past were:

- casual at Pizza Hut (they didn't even bother telling me that they closed until I turned up to work that day haha)
- casual at The Gabba during cricket and AFL season
- work experience at a Town Planning firm (I sent an email saying I quit cos of Uni, but I really quit cos I didn't get paid lol)
- casual checkout chick and fruit & veg chick at Coles (2.5yrs)
- undergrad urban and transport planner at one of the biggest engineering firms in the world)
- full-time job at the same company straight after graduating

Probs won't leave this job in a while cos I'm happy with it. Plus there are opportunities to get transferred overseas someday. I've been there for nearly 4years now.
