Starter Job


This may not be the career you want. So sayeth the Jedi Job Master. 

But is the job that you take along the way towards realizing career ambitions & aspirations.  Food service jobs are gateway opportunities towards full time employment opportunities. 

But they should only be treated as gateway jobs, not permanent career opportunities. 

This picture was taken at  local fast food space in South Portland, Maine. It is my stop by place when I want/need/gotta have breakfast sandwich. 

Description: This is it! It’s time you worked for someone who will give you the tools to learn, grow and be what you want to be – both personally and professionally. We’re looking for hard working, enthusiastic individuals who want to be a part of a winning team. If you enjoy working with people and love to learn new things, we want to meet you. We offer flexible schedules and the opportunity to advance within our restaurants. Got what it takes? Apply online and see what your future can hold. Smiling while providing outstanding customer service is required.

I had two food service jobs early on along the path to 35 years & counting of full time employment. The first was the summer of 1974 at Boy Scout Camp Hinds-Pine Tree Council in Raymond, Maine. The second & last was at Northeastern University, Boston, MA – 1976/7. I’m not going to count KP duty in Air Force Basic Training. 

What gets learned & reinforced in these entry level jobs?  Work ethic, reliable on time reporting & attendance, working as a team, getting along with others, customer service, and the list goes on.
