My first job was when I was fifteen years old. It was at a local carwash that my dad knew the owners and got me the job. I ended up working my first and last day that day. They said I was to slow when I was being trained on how they do stuff. I was paid $30 and given a Gatorade and sent on my way. They lied and said they would call me if they needed me. I laughed when shortly after they were shut down.

Im sure you are happy with your first job and im sure you are extremely happy with your job you have now because it seems that you have come along way in just 4 short years of your life. My first job i had 10 years ago in my sophmore year of highschool and i worked in a telemarketing industry and i hated the job so much that i only stayed working there about two weeks and actually left because they were always sending me home early because i wasnt able to get enough sales done. Well i think i made around 7 something an hour plus commission which was just awful and i hated it. I would never work in that industry again because im not one to talk on the phone at all.

hello friend, That was a great thing that you earned that 30rps for a whole day of hard work! :) I have got rs.500 for a small website that I developed for my client around some 2yrs ago, and I felt so happy that day, that finally I have done something to get that money earned. I still remember that day when I got that money in my hands:)

My first paying job was when I 9 years old and that was babysitting a family friend's 2year old toddler. I didn't do much except make sure that he gets fed, cleaned, and naps at the right time. I can't recall how long I was doing the job for, but I was happy getting paid. Thinking about it now, I should say that young kids who takes on the babysitting job should know what they're doing. It's important to know the safety of the baby and their own. I enjoyed the fact that I can buy something I like from the money I worked for. (^_^)

when I was in my 3rd year of college, I've been a staff in my auntie's internet cafe. I'm proud of it for the experience because I have learned a lot in it and it helps me for my course is computer science. But I cannot say that I really enjoyed the experience. But still I'm proud of it.

When I was a Kid, I never wanted to be dependent on my parents so I used to do some thing other to make my pocket money .Like I used to make kites and sell them to local friends etc. But the in true sense earning as I made my first earning as a private tutor some 35 years back. I used to take private tuition class of a tenth standard student and in return I used to get some Rs.35/- or so per month! This I have started when I was in college and soon after few months I gathered many students and I had a full class of students to teach! This was my liking and I wanted to teach the students right from the time I have passed my tenth standard! Today I am a Equine Vet specialized in Animal Genetics and Breeding and Work for one of the reputed Stud farms of my country, where we breed the Thoroughbred Race Horses, in the capacity of a Senior Resident Vet! Thanks for the discussion I liked participating in it!

My first job was working in the hay field of the ranch where we lived. I ran the head rake, which meant I went ahead of the crew to rake up the hay so it could be stacked. That was a long time ago, but I made $8 a day - not too bad at the time.
