My First Job
CRN asked this year's Women of the Channel honorees to look back at their beginnings and share tales of how they got their start. Some pointed back to early jobs as lifeguards, babysitters and store clerks. Others wrote about their first "real" jobs post-college, both in and out of tech. A common thread is that all of them learned valuable life lessons that helped shape the professionals they are today. Here's a look at some of the first jobs held by the 2014 Women of the Channel and the wisdom they gained from them.
