#MyFirstSevenJobs has been trending on Facebook and Twitter for the last couple of days and I have been tempted to share mine.

They are not glamorous at all, but they were filled with some great memories.

1. Cutting grass/shoveling driveways
Seasonal jobs should be every young person's specialty. Landscaping and snow removal usually lead to big tips when the job is over. When you're a kid, $20 can feel like $200.

2 and 3. Dishwasher
By far the worst part of being a dishwasher was the stench coming off of me at the end of the night. The smell of old food would stink up any room I was in.

4. Busboy/waiter
The profession that really tests your patience with other people. Some restaurant goers are absolutely the worst. When we have servers call in about being stiffed on a tip for whatever reason, I think back to all the times I had to wait on unappreciative hand and foot.

5. Cook
I cut myself several times with some very sharp knives in this particular kitchen. I knew after the first incident that cooking was not my calling. Nowadays I specialize in grilling burgers in my backyard.

6. Kitchen manager
I dealt with some absolute idiots managing a kitchen. Then again, at this point I already knew this was not where I wanted to be. It was like the blind leading the blind!

7. Nighttime DJ in Iowa
And the rest is history. Job No. 7 was my first job in the radio industry. Every job since has been a radio job somewhere in the United States. Job No. 12 is the job I have right now, co-host of the Deminski and Doyle Show, 2 to 7 p.m. on New Jersey 101.5.
