My First Job: Gary McCrary

Name: Gary McCrary
City of residence: Victoria
Current title: Manager of the Victoria Shooting Sports Club
First job: I worked as a petroleum engineer for Exxon Mobile when I got out of school.
What it taught me: I learned that I didn't want to do that the rest of my life, and with the job I took after that, I learned I didn't want to work shift work, either. I learned it was important to do something you love.
