The time variable and the event are not two separate concepts,
the duration is the time till the event occurs. When you look
at time till employment, then starting AIDS medication is not 
the beginning of a spell, leaving the labor market, leaving 
school, becoming unemployed, are the beginning of the spell.
Whether or not the patient takes AIDS medication is your
explanatory variable, not your explained variable.

Hope this helps,
