What was your first job?

A man walks past the neon sign in front of the 'We Work' co-operative co-working space on March 13, 2013 in Washington, DC.

Remember your first day in an office (or, for some, a barn)?

Our first jobs shape us, how we view work and see ourselves as part of a bigger team.

We went around Los Angeles to find stories of first jobs and what lessons you still hold from your first time employed. Lizzie O'Leary told us about her first job in a sandwich shop, I was something called a 'video game quality assurance tester,' what was yours?
