Was your first job or working experience related to the career path you eventually chose?

Yes. I worked in a research lab at a medical school. My (eventual) career involved working in research labs for the federal government (NIOSH) and the same medical school as where I started.

If your crappy high school job became your career, you probably went wrong somewhere..

What if your high school job wasn't crappy?

My high school job was working for my dad in his cabinet shop and I have worked in a cabinet shop ever since

There wasn't much luck involved. I went to the local medical school and talked myself into a research job that didn't even exist yet. I had spent the summer before at a research institute doing a NSF summer research program.

I started out doing the dishes, now I own the place. Worked out pretty well for me. 😃
