My First Job: Betty White
11:23 AM EDT
Summer Jobs+ is a call to action for businesses, non-profits, and government to work together to provide pathways to employment for young people in the summer of 2012. It's about helping people find their first jobs.
Actress Betty White's first job isn't much of a surprise. The nonagenarian landed a guest shot on a talk show back in television's early days, and although the role was small, she learned one important lesson from the job: she wanted to stay in show business for the rest of her life. And she has.
So far, employers have listed more than 300,000 jobs, mentorships, and other employment opportunities this summer through Summer Jobs+.
