  17. 17. Don’t Let this Happen to You! “My summer job was super gross.” “I worked at a pool last summer where my official title was "pool aide." … I had to clean up throw-up, sweep up smushed food, scrub toilets, stand at the bottom of the slides for hours – leading to my knee pains, wash out the showers, pull the hair out of the drains, listen to the complaints of parents who didn't think their un-pottytrained child needed a swim diaper, pick up dirty diapers in the bathrooms, and the best part; clean out the drains from the pool. You could find just about anything in there, from Band-Aids to G. I. Joes.” –Lauren D.

  20. 20. Exposure Your first job can also expose you to experiences you never thought you’d enjoy. You may think you’ll hate flipping burgers for a few hours a day, then find yourself applying to culinary schools.
