You've Gotta Start Somewhere!

Ideally we all look for the best job we can get. We want a job in a good company, in our area of expertise, with lots of benefits, etc. Most of us know that rarely happens when we are starting our career. So those of you starting out working wherever you can just to get by – don’t be de-motivated! Look where these celebs started out!

1. Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt used to promote El Pollo Loco Restaurant by prancing around in a chicken costume. I think this is awesome.

2. Beyonce Knowles

Beyonce’s mother used to own a hair salon, and before Beyonce’s career began she was stuck sweeping hair ‘to the left’.

3. Gwen Stefani

Gwen Stefani spent her teen years mopping the floors and emptying bins at Dairy Queen, before she made the ‘Sweet Escape’…

4. Mick Jagger

This guy also started out selling ice cream. How cute! But wait, after that he moved on to working as a porter at Bexley Mental Hospital. Weird. On another note, I’m sure it inspired him when writing songs like ‘19th Nervous Breakdown’

5. Ozzy Osbourne

Ozzy Osborne’s first job is a bit shocking but not very surprising. Ozzy used to work at a slaughter house. Enough said.

6. Rod Stewart

Rod Stewart is colorblind. So what better job for a colorblind young boy than being a screen printer printing wallpapers?! … He got fired.

7. Tom Cruise

Extra extra read all about it! Tom cruise whipped around town as a paper boy at a young age. If only he knew how many headlines he would be making in the future.

8. Whoopie Goldberg

Whoopie Goldberg used to be a bricklayer. I think it’s safe to say she has had somewhat of an improvement in her career.

9. Madonna

Madonna used to work at Dunkin Donuts. She got fired for squirting jelly all over customers.
