CEOs reflect on their first job CNN - July 29, 2010
Most people have what I call "Kid Jobs" - the jobs you have when you're in school. Most follow the same pattern of - working in local stores or for family or friend's parents.
Most of us have many kid jobs until we finish school and move to a point where we can support ourselves.
Adult First Jobs
With first jobs in a professional capacity, most young people know it takes years to get established in a given field, which goes along with experience and sometimes additional education.
Now and again I met young college graduates who want success and the respect that goes along with it, as soon as they launch their careers - their first job.
They ask me questions like... Will I become successful after my first year? Will I be promoted at that time and make lots of money? Will I have problems with authority figures? The answers all go to their ego issues, pressures to succeed, questions about tier career chose, and things along that line. It all takes time and hard work ... unless you're connected and even then ... nothing replaces experience.
Think back ... What was your first kid job? What was your first professional job? What were your goals then? What are they today?
My first job was babysitting at age 13. I didn't like it and never did it again. My first professional job was school teacher. In between I wore many hats - from professional model, to bank teller and more. I like what I do today best of all. Why? Because I know what I came here to do and this is it!
FYI - With some people the job must be given to them, they have no capacity to find a job. With others, they can find employment on their own or through a friend or family member.
Some people have great money karma - they make and lose fortunes over a lifetime, but the money and success always returns. This is not about coming from a wealthy family, but they just have luck no matter what they do - money always finds them.
