My First Job: Jimmy Fallon

Summary: 
Jimmy Fallon talks about his first job as part of the Summer Jobs+ program.

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.

Jimmy Fallon is the host of NBC's Late Night and an alum of Saturday Night Live. For all his success as an entertainer, his first job was anything but glamorous -- he worked at a grocery store where it was his responsibility to keep the floor mats clean.

So far, employers have listed more than 300,000 jobs, mentorships, and other employment opportunities this summer through Summer Jobs+.
