Hello, I remember my first job was part time job, was assigned from my teacher at university. That time, my team survey the comment of audience as project of music in garden. It made me more confident to communicate with different people and more patient with unwanted situation. However, I joined for this new experience and got money also. Each team-workers got money USD 30.- a time and place that I spend for daily life and  little shopping.

Hi. Everybody,
It is really nice to read all of your comments. I am Rafi from Myanmar. I have finished my university with B. Sc (Hons:) Physics in 2009 and I started applying for NGO, International Non Governmental Humanitarian Organization. Finally, I got a job with MSF-H ( Medicines Sans Frontieres)  within three months of my university. Actually, I applied for any kind of job I interested but  never got shortlisted for interview. It was the first shortlisted, the first interview and the first job of my life (As a personal assistant to Expatriate Medical Doctor) and the payment is $170. I worked with this position around two and half years then transferred to another position. I am very eager to improve my English  both written and spoken. So, I hope my best that British Council is the one which can help me to reach my target.

My first job was at United Nations project in the topic of  Disaster Risk Management.  I worked over a year in a rural community in my country. Since then I have been working on this issue, with different NGO and really I enjoy my work.

it's a very nice job, My first job was at Engineer, 

Hi, I'm Spanish and my first job was as a shop assistant. I sold coffee (beans or ground). Every day when I came home everybody said in the bus: Ummm, it smell good! It smell like coffee. It was not coffee but my clothes!!!

My first job was as assistant in the International Relations Office at the General Auditor Office of Nicaragua, I remember that I received $ 100.00 as salary per month.

My first job is not a real job ,it's a training period as a part of my study which is dentistry.
In my college ,I have five years of study.
In the last study year, we prepared to be professionals in our career so we were 
treated patients under supervision of our seniors.
The ministry of higher education & scientific researches gave us a salary which 
was about 40$ a month.
The college gave to us as one payment for 6 months of  work so the total a
mount of the many was about 240 $, and we have another payment for 3 months
of work but it was delayed to be cashed to us.
I may be go to my college in the few next days for receiving the money.
I spent the money I had got on my graduations photos and buying clothes 
because it was not a huge a mount of money.
I am looking forward to get my real job with real salary in the next month.

My first job is a training dentist at the last year in the last year of my study in the dentistry college.
The salary was about 40$ a month!
