We asked Birmingham area residents, What was your first job after college?

I graduated from The University of Tennessee in Chattanooga last year with a degree in theater and education.”

I had this job along with being a server at a popular restaurant in Tennessee. I was promoted last month to director of student operations.”

MAKALA DOLLAR: “I attended Ole Miss (The University of Mississippi) and graduated last year. I studied accounting and my first job was working as an accountant for a car wash in Mississippi.
