MY FIRST JOB AFTER BDS:
THINGS I LEARNT NOT TO DO
One of the most important milestone in anyone’s life & career is – One’s First Job.
Bottom-line: Every one of us remembers his/her first job and the things that we learned. My first job was a good learning curve, and to this day I apply all the above points.
My first job was a great experience for me.
In the year 2011, I was fresh out of Final Year BDS, looking for job opportunities to start earning pocket money. During internship there were no examinations to worry about, no clinical quotas to finish, no deadlines to chase.
And … no stipend for interns.
After college hours, I had a lot of free time on my hands which I spent mostly on watching the latest movies at the new mall/multiplex that had sprung up near my college. I was a big movie buff (I still am), and I had to do something to maintain that lifestyle.
A senior once called and asked me if I was interested in working in a dental clinic belonging to a professor from another college. I instantly said yes, and with the professor’s approval of my clinical skills, got the job.
However, not everything I did, met with approval from my boss.
