All CEOs had to start somewhere, and whether they were bussing tables or photographing concerts to pay their rent, there were quite a few lessons to be learned along the way.

We spoke with some of Boston tech's CEOs about their first jobs, what they learned and how these gigs shaped their paths to becoming CEOs.

What was your first job? 

My first job was on Wall Street in investment banking and then in Equity Research covering major media companies. I learned that I was passionate about media, but not necessarily banking or equity research.
