Does your society have full employment or are there groups where finding work is a huge issue? I remember massive unemployment in the UK in the 1970s and 80s. How easy do your characters find it when looking for work (especially their first job)?
If employment is not an issue for your characters as such, is there any background information as to how their society is run and why your characters don't need to worry about finding a way of providing for themselves? Even in a magical world, not everyone will have the same skillls. Some will have to top up what they can do by finding other means of survival (otherwise all those with lesser skills willl be wiped out by the unscrupulous in their race to the top).
