My first job: A drive-thru restaurant love

A Krystal Burger restaurant in Chattanooga, Tenn.

Over the past few weeks, we've been asking you to send us stories about your first job.

Today, the story of a first job that paid off in more ways than one. Stephanie Donoghue is a Marketplace listener in Altamonte Springs, Fla. Her first job was at Krystal Burger restaurant.

"I didn't have a car, so I had to find the closest place that I could walk to; that was pretty much my only option," she said. "I learned how to work with others and talk to the public, how to treat customers and things like that. When you're just a young high schooler, you don't really think about that kind of thing."

Then one day, a cute boy walked in. To find out what happens, listen to the audio above.

In today's times where so many people are looking for jobs these stories, I feel, will help motivate these people as well as the ones who are making a career change. This site will help your story become a case study for everyone to get inspired or motivated.
