About This Quiz

We all remember our first jobs. There you are, chilling out with your friends, playing games with your family, sleeping late in the summer with nothing to do all day, and then all of a sudden it happens, it is time to get a job. Hardly any of us still do anything like we did when we got our very first job, but what job we chose when we were young tells us a lot about who we turned into today. 

We think that if you answer a few questions, we will be able to tell you what your first job happened to be. Were you a babysitter, or did that kind of thing freak you out? Did you work at a place like McDonald's, or does fast food make your brain go really slow? Were you the type that would get up early enough to do a paper route or did you like to sleep in? 

Could you handle a shift on the cash register at a retail store, or were you the type that would rather be busting it in the hot sun mowing lawns? There are so many jobs you could have had, but we've only got a certain number of questions to guess. Can we do it? Let's find out.
