In a post on LinkedIn this week, President Barack Obama shared details about his very first gig in the workforce: scooping ice cream at a Baskin-Robbins as a teenager in Hawaii. Obama said the experience taught him lessons about hard work and ultimately helped him get to where he is today.
“My first summer job wasn’t exactly glamorous, but it taught me some valuable lessons,” the president wrote. “Responsibility. Hard work. Balancing a job with friends, family, and school.”
Obama was writing to announce a new, multi-agency initiative aimed at putting more youngsters to work.
