I am 25 years old, and I've had at least 11 jobs since I started working at the age of 17.
When I was in my teens I had the crazy idea that I wanted to do as many different jobs, learning as many different skills as I could, while I was young enough to 'pull it off'.
How better to learn how to garden, cook or make coffee than to actually spend a summer doing that for money, right?
Since I graduated from college, my above-average number of job switches have been partly due to the poor economy. It's been hard to find a job, and I took what I could get until something better came along.
Also, I have the desire to find a job I love (which I think I've done with my current role in marketing with Nurse Next Door).
I live in an expensive city so I picked up a second job four months ago and have been working six to seven days a week to pay my rent and still afford a few dinners out with friends during the week.
Other jobs: Grocery store clerk, barista, salad prep for a catering company, landscaper, basketball camp counselor, waitress, merchandiser for a beer company, sales associate for lululemon, medical sales rep, casino clerk selling cigarettes and lottery tickets
A CNNMoney analysis of Census data shows these jobs -- which have roughly the same amount of men and women workers -- have little disparity in salaries.
