    It is most personal. What kind of job one should do depends upon the individuals’ interest. Of course in dire necessity one has to sacrifice the personal interest.

    For 7%  of all americans, the answer would be: McDonalds.
    For me, throwing newspapers. That was when adolescents, not adults, delivered newspapers, and telephones had dials and cords.

    I was a cashier in a hardware store chain that went bankrupt soon after I was hired.  I don't believe that it was my fault though.

    Together with my primary school friend, we were distributing some brochures to passerby along the street. Most just take the brochures and then throw them to the nearest dustbin without looking at it.

    I used to have a paper route with a friend of mine.  It was fun a really fun first time job especially when you are 12.  I remember that I used to think I made a lot of money back then.  Times have definitely changed.

    I was a counter clerk at a dry cleaners. It was an okay job although you would be surprised what I found inside people's pockets.

    Junior auditor in our country's biggest auditing firm. Was hard work - lots of overtime, pay not so good but it taught me a lot of things.
