Even more awesome/awful summer jobs

Blog / September 2022

Here we go again

After having too much fun last year, circled back this Summer with another year of good/bad summer jobs at The Financial Post. Chatting with super-successful people about that time they used to sling up double-doubles or sell corn dogs for minimum wage is my love language.

They’re all awesome, if you ask me because I’m very biased, but just a few highlights include astronaut Roberta Bonder murdering moths (my descriptor, though I promise you she laughed), legendary fashionista Jeanne Beker frying waffles at the Ex (adorable photo included), Dragon’s Den Robert Herjavec stacking boxes, Tetris-style, and former Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff as the OG analog online dater.

As always, am humbled, keen and grateful for the opportunity and wish all gigs were half as sweet.
