My first Job

I was lucky. When I finished College, I was hired for twenty two days by the "CCSS" to cover an employee vacations.

On my first day I had a reunion with the boss and the first thing he said to me was: "all you had learned in College is going to be useless here"

Those words made me very nervous but as time passed I realized that he just wanted me to learn that every situation is different and that is why my studies are very important because they are my bases to get a job but is more important my thinking and my reaction to resolve the problems because these are my tools to survive on the labor market, to survive in a company.

Right now I've been working for two years. My second job was as a cashier in a cooperative, and my current job is as a manager of a non-governmental enterprise but is my first job as a manager and I always remember the words of my first boss to be the best manager that I can be.

  1. Jean Carlo your history is really good and also it´s important to mention that your studies are gonna be really useful!!

    Good Luck!

  2. Thanks for the story... well-written, too. Although instead of a "reunion" with your boss you'd usually have a "meeting." A reunion is sort of like an anniversary meeting between friends or coworkers who've not seen each other in a long time.

    Oh, and Kevin: it's "story," not "history."

    See you both tomorrow!
