I don't think there's such a thing as a "bad job." Sure, there are plenty of things you can do for a living that are unpleasant. But whether a job is "good" or "bad" has more to do with your attitude towards it than any specific property of the job itself.
And when discussing first jobs, they are all good, because really, what you get out of your first job isn't money, but experience. It's something no one can give you, that you can't learn in school. Having a boss, being responsible, and bringing home that first paycheck. You have to experience this yourself to really understand it and make it a part of your being.
I think back to my first jobs. Working for my Dad in the store, marking up merchandise, running the cash register. Making change (yes, I can make change). Then setting up and working at the Video Store later on.
Working in the Operating Room at Long Island Jewish, stocking the carts and wheeling patients around.
Waiting tables at a camp in Israel.
Working for a used auto dealer. Shoveling up after the guard dogs at the beginning of the day.
I learned from each of these jobs and grew as a whole. What I learned from that last job was that I was glad that I had been accepted to medical school.
So I'm really excited to learn that my daughter Fudge, a sophomore at Stern College, found a job.
