The English doesn't sound right. I can't figure out how to make it sound better without more context. Like is "from here" referring to a time or a location? Is it was active I would say "My job started here" but it doesn't work in the passive.

i think you're right. while the di-verb construction is probably perfectly fine indonesian, in english the passive voice simply doesn't translate well with the verbs start/ begin/ commence.
