First job: Obama's daughter serves coffee! What did you do?

More

Malia Obama is serving coffee on the sets of Halle Berry's new show.

What was your first job? What did you learn from it?

We would love to know!

US President Barack Obama's elder daughter Malia Obama, who worked on the sets of Halle Berry's new show Extant for a week, reportedly fetched coffee for the cast and crew.

Malia, 15, got little special treatment on the TV show's sets and spent most of her day going on runs for coffee and drinks for the cast, TMZ magazine reported.

She also reportedly helped the crew by blocking people from walking through scenes during shooting.

Like Malia, most of us too start small -- as volunteers, interns, trainees -- ending up doing all sorts of odd jobs that aren't remotely close to what we studied for or what we hope to do! 

Do you remember what your first job was?

Did you like Malia Obama fetched coffee for the rest of the team?

Were you asked to do the minutes for a boring office meeting?

Or spent an entire night preparing a PowerPoint presentation for your immediate supervisor?

One's first job always holds a special place in one's heart.
