BAR­BARA COSSART

I started my first job in 1956 as the sec­re­tary to an ac­coun­tant in Biggenden, Queens­land.

I quite en­joyed the job. Af­ter board­ing school, I could be my own per­son and earn a lit­tle money.

I loved the free­dom my first job gave me.

MICHELLE HANNA

My first job was at a lo­cal Gold Coast news agency, where I did any­thing and every­thing.

I left the job af­ter work­ing there for 18 months, be­cause I moved to Toowoomba.

NICK EAS­TON

I was a spare parts in­ter­preter. I had to find dif­fer­ent parts for dif­fer­ent kinds of agri­cul­tural ma­chin­ery.

Ev­ery day was an ad­ven­ture, be­cause you never knew what was go­ing to walk through the door.

DAR­IAN JAYNE LEWIS

My first job was in hair­dress­ing.

I’ve al­ways been in­ter­ested in hair­dress­ing, par­tic­u­larly the styling as­pects of the job.

I liked how, through the job, I got to know many dif­fer­ent peo­ple and per­son­al­i­ties.

GAR­RETT MALONE

I was a bar­tender at the Emer­ald Me­mo­rial Club in Emer­ald, Cen­tral Queens­land, for four years.

The best part of the job, was be­ing a so­cialite. The worst part was clean­ing up af­ter­wards, when the bar closed for the night.
