Lessons Learned From My First Jobs

  • Taking phone-in orders at a restaurant: People can hear whether or not you are smiling when you answer a phone call.
  • Waiting tables: People care about the How so much more than the What. And always be nice to elderly women.
  • Concierge at a vacation resort: People will pay you an unbelievable amount of money to make up their minds for them.
  • College internship 1 – big tech company: Your career is a beautifully crafted and important piece of art that no one else really cares about except for you.
  • College internship 2 – small tech company: A good leader creates simplicity.
