My first job was as a maths teacher and now after 24 years I teach... physics! A great change...
Only joking, I enjoy my job. A student of mine told me I don't remember how much time ago: «Prof (a short word to call a teacher here in Italy), you - an engineer - why are you a teacher only? You don't earn very much!»
Well, today I can say I'm very happy to earn... enough and enjoy my job. Sometimes the "failures" in life are the best thing!
Hey, Jack, by the way... A few months ago you advised me to go to the London Eye on my holiday over there this summer. I responded you, like a posh: «Oh, no, what a terrible idea... I'll like visit only museums and so forth...» Errr, can I tell you? I climbed up on the London Eye too!

Hi Sirjoe777

I hope you had a good time in London and enjoyed your trip on the London Eye.

i studied dentistry for 5 yeras and graduated , then i was searching for a job in a private clinic,and i started work immediately,i was responsible for the composite restorations only,it was a great experience because i met important and educated patients,and everything was doing great until i fought with the assistant,she was unrespectable and very rude,so i decided to quit and to start my own job in my own private clinic,but the worst thing that has ever happened to me is that,when i got my first salary,i putted all the money in my purse and went to bye boots,and while i was searching for the suitable boot,two old women entered the shop and they had a big sac ,while i was busy trying my boots,they stole my purse,and i didn't notice until after it was  too late,i reported this accident to the police and i was crying because it was my first salary,i felt sad and desperate.

My first Job is a cashier in one of the restaurant at my country which I get easily because of my cousin's help. And it was the  first time to work with foreigner there. The manager of it is Singaporean and I have learn a lot of things from her. I have made much money to support my parents by working there for three years. After I did transfer to  market which is under the same owner.

My first job was in a chemical lab during summer break. It was a bit of a strange experience because I burned my hand with acid. It healed well, but that was a good lesson on not talking too much while working with dangerous stuff. Very Interesting exchange of ‘first job’ experiences.
