Cashier - 1 year (the high school job)
Deli Clerk/Cook - 4 years (the job during college)
Door to door fundraiser and campaign coordinator - 6 months (longest of my life)
Legal Secretary - 1 year
Paralegal - 1 year and counting (legal secretary and paralegal was for the same employer though, they paid for my additional education )

Should be interesting to see where I eventually end up. Each job brought a large increase in pay so the moves definitely made FIRE more of a possibility.
