Twitter Hashtag Reveals First Celebrity Jobs

The hashtag #firstsevenjobs shows that even celebrities start somewhere

Looking at the success of celebrities and business moguls can be enticing and intimidating to onlookers. For many trying to aspire to be like them, it is hard to imagine that they also had to work unglamorous, ordinary jobs just like the rest of us.


This week the Twitter hashtag #firstsevenjobs showed that before they made it big celebrities were just like everyone else hoping their dreams would come true.


Among some of the big names that tweeted the hashtag were Stephen Colbert, Constance Wu, Buzz Aldrin, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Tim Allen.


In today’s world, it’s easy to only focus on the positive aspects of life like a highlight reel but in reality, the road to success and is hard and paved with challenges.


We rarely hear or see what famous people were doing to get where they are now. Looking at all of the celebrities, pop culture icons, entrepreneurs, and CEOs on the list below with their first jobs puts success in perspective. It goes to show that everyone apparently moves at their own pace and that roads to success should never be compared with others.
