It all started last Thursday, when Alaskan songwriter Marian Call asked a simple question on Twitter while offering her own answer:
The idea was that you might learn something about someone by the first jobs they held. We’ve all had a few embarrassing ways of generating an income, right? (Not that our current jobs are anything to be embarrassed about.)
For some internet reason — which means, roughly translated, “who knows?” — the hashtag #firstsevenjobs took off the following weekend on Twitter, with the famous and infamous fessing up about their past, including people like astronaut Buzz Aldrin, actress Mira Sorvino, and playwright Lin-Manual Miranda. Here are seven other famous people revealing their early employment history.
James Gunn (Screenwriter, Guardians of the Galaxy)
Constance Wu (Fresh Off the Boat)
Melissa Fumero (Brooklyn-Nine Nine)
Savannah Guthrie (The Today Show)
It’s fun to see where these stars started. You can add your seven on Twitter using the hashtag #firstsevenjobs then tag us @TINYpulse. And then have some fun seeing what other occupations others have suffered en route to their current and presumably happy station in life.
