What was your first regular paying job? How much did you get and what did you do with your first paycheck? (Didn't know where else to post this topic)

The sem before i graduated, i began working as a Student Assistant for one of my professors in the UP Psych Department. My first paycheck i used to finance one of my final research papers right before i graduated.

The succeeding paychecks allowed me to bum around UP for the next 3 months without having to ask for baon from my mom... and look for a real job at the same time.

I quit that job when I got my first real job... as an...HR Analyst for a start up telco in Ortigas.

My first paycheck - i treated my mom out to dinner and then bought some groceries and clothes ...

I got paid 5.5K on my first job as a lawyer. I bought a business suit to make me look more "lawyerly". Eleven years after that first paycheck, I find myself paying more in terms of taxes to the government compared to my annual salary as a new lawyer....

Hmm, first project was a simple inventory program for a Chinese friend's business when I was in 1st year college.

It took my 5 nights to finish and I got P3,500 for it.

I used it to pay for my tuition balance.

I've programmed my whole college days to pay my way through school and get my bachelor's degree.

I had my first job when i was in grade six, tutoring students in lower grades after my class.
I remember i was earning 2hundred to 3 hundred pesos per student in a month.
First thing i bought was a gift for my mom's birthday.
I was also not asking for baon from my mom that time.

At age 4 or 5, my first "job" was folding napkins and wrapping utensils at my grandma's restaurant. I was paid with ice cream.

My first non-family related work was when my friends and I set up a mobile disco in high school for which we didn't also make money coz we did it only so we can meet girls and get laid.

My first non-family related work for which I actually got paid was as a talent for a couple of tv commercials me and my friends did in college. More of a gimmick than a job. Burned the money easily on dates. Got laid.

My first real job was as an account executive. Real salary plus commissions. Met lots of secretaries. Got laid often.
