    From 1973 through 1984 I think I had about 2 or 7 jobs...after that I was a painter....so I'll guess 5!  smile

    God, people.  I don't want to think about it.  I'm a typical writer/artist type that has done more eclectic things than I care to remember....  And, well, I had my first job at age 11 or so, so it would be a large sum, if I wanted to count.

    I am happy to say in my forty or so years of working that I changed jobs three times and two of them were before I was twenty-one.

        We have a split legal profession - I'm in the court work (advocacy) and specialist legal advice bit. We wear wigs, gowns etc in court (-:

          What area of legal advice? Those wigs give me entertaining mental images. No disrespect. I didn't know you still wore those. lol

            I do immigration, extradition, public law, and a bit of immigration-related crime.

            We do indeed still wear them - horsehair wig, black wool gown, white stand-up collars, and bands.

    I ran 2 different businesses before I could legaly drive, 2 more jobs before I could legaly vote, 1 more job before I could legally drink.  Then I went to college and 2 more jobs in the last 20 years.  Now I work for myself, again.  If you're keeping up thats 8.

        I'm a permit consultant in Chicago.  If you're building a skyscraper or erecting a tent, throwing a block party or filming a movie, you need a permit and I'm the guy that knows what you need and how to get it.

        Not Sure I've lived in 4 different states while doing all these jobs(Texas,Kansas,Colorado, and now Arizona), I loved interviewing for jobs it helped sharpen my acting chops. Every job was an exprience most good, but some bad.

    More than I care to remember...but good question...marinealways!
    Let me just say... I've worked various "Management" gigs...and learned alot from each one. As Far As Different Ones...? (for the next category question) No...they were mostly all the same for me. Really...once you get through all the regular paperwork...they all seem the same!
