Description: This past Saturday the Globe and Mail Report on Business featured a rather different sort of an article where ten highly successful Canadians talked about their summer jobs of years gone by. Finance Minster Bill Morneau talked about the value of hard work at his summer jobs. David McKay of the Royal Bank noted how a co-op job showed him what he did not want to do for the rest of his life. Christiane Germain, of the Groupe Germain Hotels chain spoke of how a job in a cheese store taught her things about providing top-notch service to clients.
