my first job was research associate with a consulting firm. Initially it was very difficult for me to manage work but after one year started enjoying my work.

 
My first job was a gardener in  my school when it were summer holidays.This job was offered  me by the teacher. I worked with my friends and it was funnily and interestingly.We planted the flowers and watered them. I was working 3 hours.

Hi,
In the last episode, Episode No. 4 was talked about “Wolf & Ewe” and was meant that. I looked it up in Dehkhoda`s Dictionary and Knew what it was said isn’t Correct.
“Wolf & Ewe” is a slang expression and it means a time when we cannot identify wolf with ewe correctly, in other words, the time of day that the sky is dark and light and it is not enough light to see things.
Yours Sincerely,
Mohammad. 

Thanks Mohammad
 
I've been looking online and 'the hour of the wolf' is also an expression in Scandinavian languages. It's the time between night and dawn when the wolf is said to wait outside people's doors.

My first job was as a book-seller I would go door-to-door trying to convince people the books I had were that they really need in their homes. The unpleasant feeling  I had to say anything to get a sale taught me that it wasn't my job at all. It's much for to say I left it as soon I could and never tried again.

 

 
Hi
My first job was at a fast food restaurant, named Mc Donalds. I think there are Mc Donalds all over the world. It was a part time job and I didn't earn much money, but was ok. I was a teenager and enjoyed myself with my friends. I spent my money paying preparatory courses for college entrance exams and buying some staffs to me.
 
 
 
 

Hi, every one.
My first job was in trading!. this was when I was 14 years old. In summer I used to buy bread, as in my country that days it consumed you 4 hours turn to get the bread, and resell them for people in hurry, so I get some money. I save this money to buy my needs later when back to school.

My first job was as a sale assistent in a sale by auction. the books were old papers. The experience was great as I discover a environment of collectors and  fascinneted people by books in general. There is a particular atmosphere when the sale by auction is in process furthermore when a lot of people want the same book, every arm is up and the price is higher very quickly.

My first job was mathematics teacher in government school in Thailand, my salary was not much but enough for me. I love mathematics and enjoy my job. My country is in south east Asia, in my school we are going to use English as a medium of teaching maths and science but teachers' skill in English is not good. This is the reason of learning English of mine.

keep trying to improve your language by practicing it and make promise with yourself to improve English language within a certain period.
