While the Hamilton creator’s working life began operating a slushie machine at his aunt's store, late-night TV host Colbert can recount jobs as a futon frame maker and salesman.

According to Time, the social game began when Twitter user Marian Call, a musician, asked, “What were your first 7 jobs?” and named her own early work history. The simple question soon spread with hashtags #FirstSevenJobs and #First7Jobs, which later began to trend.

Take a look at the first jobs held by various actors, musicians and public figures below.
