hello, Im kinda stuck on how to initialize the class inside the main. Or what to write instead of the ??? inside the main.
Thank you in advance...

class Job
{
public:
	Job(string compName, string titl, double sal)
		: companyName(compName), title(titl), salary(sal){};
	Job(){};
	string& getCompanyName() {return companyName;};
	string& getTitle()		 {return title;};
	double	getSalary()		 {return salary;};
	
	void setCompanyName(string name) {companyName = name;};
	void setTitleName(string name) {title = name;};
	void setSalery(double name) {salary = name;};


private:
	string companyName;
	string title;
	double salary; 
};

class person
{
public:
	person(string name, string last, string compName, string title, double sal, Job& job)
	: m_name(name), m_last(last), m_firstJob(job){};
	int getAge(){return m_age;};
	string getName(){return m_name;};
	string getLast(){return m_last;};

	void setAge(int age) {m_age = age;};
	Job& get1stJob(){ return m_firstJob;};
	//------------------------------------
	Job* get2ndJob(){ return m_secondJob;};


private:
	string	m_name;
	string	m_last;
	int		m_age;
	Job&	m_firstJob;
	Job*	m_secondJob;

};
//*********************************************************8

void main()
{
	//Job first;
	person RafaelB("Rafael","BakerMan", "Starbucks", "maneger", 8.50,Job first);
	RafaelB.setAge(22);
	cout << RafaelB.getName() << " --" << RafaelB.getLast() << " --" << RafaelB.getAge() << endl;
	cout << RafaelB.get1stJob().getCompanyName() << " --" << RafaelB.get1stJob().getTitle() << " --" << RafaelB.get1stJob().getSalary() << endl;

}

//Job first;
person RafaelB("Rafael","BakerMan", "Starbucks", "maneger", 8.50,Job first);

The passing 'Job first' by reference doesn't work. Create 'first' before you call the function, then pass 'first' to the other class's constructor:

Job first;
	person RafaelB("Rafael","BakerMan", "Starbucks", "maneger", 8.50,first);

You might want to run a spell checker on your code also :P
