In celebration of LinkedIn turning 15, we’re sharing what we wanted to be when we was 15…
Jonathan Hirst – I was told by my careers advisor at school that I should train to be a Fish Farmer… That was computer algorithms in 1996 for you!
Tommy Castleman – When I was 15 I was running a lottery in school (I also got the teachers playing) and I had grand dreams of taking the Moorside Lotto national #schoolslotto #illegalgambling - In short, I wanted to be an entrepreneur.
Angela Hough – I always wanted to be a Vet – I even got a BTEC diploma in dog grooming!
James Walker – A Stand-up Comedian because my mum always told me I was dead funny and my singing voice was only good for the shower LOL
Rob Booth – I wanted to play up front for Man United, in fact I still do
Molly Thornton – I wanted to be a Fashion Designer, I used to draw clothes (not very nice ones I have to say) all the time!
