1. As a kid we lived in the country and I did the usual babysitting. I even had babysitting duties when a new baby was born. Luckily I lived close because I was called down around 4am to come and look after the child whilst they went and had another baby. I was very tired at school that day!!
2. Then we moved to the city when I was 15. I started at Pizza Hut when I was 16 and in Year 11 at school. I started as a kitchen hand washing dishes. Oh the long boring shifts! But I stuck it out and moved up to prep, then pizza maker and gradually shift supervisor. I stayed at Pizza Hut through the end of high school and during my 4 years of university -so 6 years all up. The advantage of Pizza Hut over somewhere like Maccas was the hours were much better. We closed at 10.30pm at night so the latest we worked was to around 11.30pm.

4. Next I moved onto my current job which I would have been at for 10 years in May. I've had 2 kids whilst working here and have gone from full-time to 3 days per week, up to a 7 day fortnight and now work 4 days per week. I still work in research, in surveys so do similar tasks to when I worked in market research but in one area - the vocational education and training sector. I started as a Research Officer but have moved up to a senior position whilst here. It's a great work place and I feel like I'm settled in for a while!!
