My first job was as a Office-Assistent, It was part time and would paid 700€ per Month and that was enaugh for my pocket. I enjoyed and also save a small amount per month, because I didn't have any other responsibility.

Thank you

My first job was production operation in a telecom company..bad salary and also condition but a good place to learn about it works.

I got my first job after I had gradueted Technical Music School in Ukraine. I was a teacher of playing the piano and music literature. It was enough difficalt work, because I went to the 5 different villages and often I walked when the weather was bad. In that years I earn too little for normal life. I remember that year without joy.

I haven't worked anything yet but I like this idea very much . I hope to work while my university studying inshallah because I want to depend on myself and to learn how I can arrange and use money in the right way

My first paid job was in a plant nursery when I was 15 and although I don't remember how much they pay me to work there I do remember that was enough at that time to buy my first set of tools to work as a carpenter apprentice a bit later and I was really happy for that. I enjoyed seeing plants growing and learnt how to grow lots of vegetables, nowadays I still use that knowledge to grow my owns plants and vegetables for my family.

Thanks for the episode.

Hello everyone. My name is Gil and my first job was as an office-boy, I remembered that I don't earn a lot of money on this job, haha and I spent all of my money buying my clothes, shoes and helping my parents to pay the bills in our home. It's was an easy job, simples tasks to do. When was a young guy I go out to the company's in my city and delivered my CV and that specific day I was walking in the street and a saw a flyer with announcing about an "office-boy" vacancy and at the same time I saw this opportunity because was an entry-level vacancy without the experience necessary and applied for the job and an I got, I had a lot of luck that moment.

Hello everybody
I worked in farm and sold vegetables when I was at secondary school. Actually I felt different to studied to get high marks. After I finished school I joined military technical college. So I graduated deploma as technician . However I decided to complete my study. Although I had worked as technician that time but I got bachelor in mechanical engineering from University. Really it was very hard-working to work and study. Everything will be easy with managing time and encouragement.

I hope that I have a job ,but I am a student I can't study and work at the same time.
