My First Job

First jobs are monumental. Our first professional responsibilities, our first paychecks, and a big step into adulthood. They’re not usually the jobs we dreamed of when we were growing up, but they were the first step to them.

I asked people of various ages around the world about their first jobs and their memories of that time. From babysitters to party princesses, everyone shared unique stories about their entry into the workplace.
