The Laguna Beach Cast Reunites

It's been quite some time (over a decade, for some) since the sound of Hilary Duff's "Come Clean" became synonymous with what would inevitably be our weekly fix of the best (or worst?) thirty minutes of "reality" television.

The cast of "Laguna Beach" served it to viewers hard with laughs, gasps and some serious emotional investment in 11th grade relationships.

But when your high school years are documented for everyone in the nation to watch on their television screens, it can be hard to adapt to a "normal" life after.

Luckily for these MTV alums, they've managed (for the most part) to slip into successful and structured careers, which allow them to make a living without relying on their "Laguna Beach" fame.

Well, for the most part at least.

Here's where 11 of your favorite "Laguna Beach" alums are working today:

Notably left off the list were the core four of the show – Lauren Conrad, Kristin Cavallari, Stephen Colletti and Lo Bosworth.

These four have gone on to start and partake in several career endeavors, from fashion lines, to spinoff reality shows (We admit it, we miss "The Hills" just as much as we miss "Laguna"!) and much, much more.

Simply put, they've capitalized off of their "Laguna" days and made names for themselves in the ever-changing celeb sphere.

We must say, we're proud of all of these former MTV stars – they've all seem to have found their niche, which is something that can't be said for everyone.

Now, check out what these celebs said on Twitter about what their first seven jobs were:
