Are we talking paying jobs? Because I was fetching diapers for my mom to put on my younger sister when I was a year-and-a-half old, and folding diapers and washing bottles when I was 6.

Anyway...for money...

1. Babysitter

2. Crew member at McDonald's

3. Sales at a department store

4. Radio and TV weather

5. Journalist

6. Political press secretary

7. Copywriter for a billion dollar clothing company

I've also had some paid acting gigs and voiceover work in there - but those weren't regular employment, so...
