  • 1988 Newspaper Deliverer - Was riding my bike with a friend when a stranger pulled up and asked if we wanted jobs. It took my Mom some convincing as I was 12 at the time.

    1992 Video Store Clerk - Neighbor, who happened to be the manager of the store, called me up and asked me if I wanted a job.

    1995 Dept. Store Sales Associate - I went into the store every other day asking if any jobs were available and spoke with the manager until they hired me. I became employee of the month my first month there. I put in 35+ hours a week, went to high school full time (senior), and took a statistics course at the state university.

    Summer 95 through Fall 96 - unemployed, freelance computer work, data entry clerk (for relative), and telemarketer. None of these lasted longer than a month. The telemarketing job (which took 3 interviews to get) lasted 2 weeks and 3 days. Two weeks of which were training.

    1996 US Army - Well, this one wasn't hard. I walked into a recruiting station and said "sign me up". The story was actually more interesting than this but unless you know me - it doesn't matter.

    1998 Contractor to US Army - One of the contractors that I worked with while in the Army offered me 5 times what I was making in the Army to get out - so I did. This is not as easy as it might sound.

    2000 Contractor to US Dept. of Justice - I was contacted via email to see if I would like an interview. Apparently one of my co-workers who knew I was frustrated with my job had given them my name. The offer was too good to pass up.

    2003 through current as Federal Employee - One of the government managers who worked with me at the DOJ had moved on to another *unamed* agency and asked me if I wanted to go too.
