      Warehouse, picking items and sending off for delivery. Got that when I started year 12 and I'm starting year 13 in September. Nice casual contract with excellent pay for my age

      Briefly worked behind a bar in a pub for a few shifts, but was too far to make it worth my while. First proper job was working as security at my uni's SU.

      I was an unpaid front-end website development intern for a couple of months, but my internship was cut short when the company went bust.
      My first proper job is the one I'm in now, which is a systems and software intern at ARM.

      If so, consider me extremely jealous.
