@fares_aktouf My first job was a hotel front desk clerk in Kuwait. I graduated from accounting school in India but was not successful or lucky to find a job in my home land. I applied via https://layboard.in/vacancies/jo... and it was real luck for me back then. The pay was good. Now I returned home, but will come back to the Middle East if I still can't find anything here.
My first real job was in biz dev. And I got fired :') I created a video to share my thoughts...

@shivam_jha3 Much appreciated. I think it was a blessing in disguise for you as you got motivated rather than losing hope.

Manufacturing quality auditor. Traveled the world, audited supplier production lines, told very competent engineers with 20+ yrs experience how the client wanted them to do... urgh I feel a ashamed of how frustrated they must have felt about that. Anyway it was a great first job with a lot of learnings.

Starbucks barista! I absolutely loved it. I worked weekends and after school. I always asked for the 5 am shifts in the summertime so I could be out by 1 pm. Plus, I would work all the holidays to get extra tips!

I was 17. I was a carpenter's assistant. My boss had half a thumb and was a draft dodger. One day, I saved him from falling three stories off a balcony by holding onto his tool belt. Definitely character building!
