I remember when I was in college, Mc Donalds just opened their first branch in the Philippines. I wanted to work part-time for MD but my parents shot down that idea. Their thinking was they can afford to pay for my schooling and they wanted me to concentrate on my studies. I was disappointed, of course. So I finished school and got my first job at Data General. I worked in quality control engineering. I stayed in that job for less than a year. I resigned and migrated here in the USA. What was my first job here? Believe it or not, I worked in a small children's clothing store in a mall in Alameda, CA. I worked there while at the same time applying for a 'real job'. I figured I might as well earn money while waiting. Did I regret it? Heck no, it's a decent way to earn $ and so what if I was a store clerk? You've got to start somewhere, right? I worked there for 4 months and then I got a job as an engineer for Eastman Kodak.
How about you, what was your first job?
