Getting your very first proper job is one of the biggest milestones and achievements that you experience in your whole life. It’s a massive moment of independence and the key towards making your own money which in turn allows you to be a real, mature adult. Of course, we all know there are certain things that come along with starting work, but what about the bits that people don’t always share? Here are things that no one tells you about your first job.
