It's a long way from mowing lawns and washing windows to the CEO's office, but today's tech titans haven't forgotten where they started in the working world. When Network World asked tech CEOs to talk about their first jobs, more than 30 obliged (click here to read about their experiences making licorice, cleaning hotel rooms, shoveling monkey cages, and scuba diving). They also offered advice for newcomers in the working world. Here's what they had to say:
1. Expect criticism
"It's important to be mindful about what you say and how it's perceived by others. But it's also important to learn that as a public person you are always going to be judged, no matter what. ... You have to be comfortable with yourself and open to criticism." -- Dave Rich, Revolution Analytics CEO (first job: football announcer).
