What was your first job after you graduated from university? Did your university studies prepare you for it?
The first job I took after graduating was in a bank, dealing with loans and small business clients. It was an interesting job, and I learned a lot from it. But my studies didn't really prepare me for it very well. Even though I studied economics, I didn't have any real experience doing the job. We did have the chance to work in banks to learn from professionals, but it still wasn't like the real thing. We always had someone else making the real decisions. So when I started my first job, it was scary to suddenly be making decisions about large sums of money on my own. I'm not sure anything can really prepare you for that!
