no ones hiring me, I have literally applied to every single sale assistant role (Christmas temp etc) everything from Tesco, to Costa to River Island to Vue to Sports Direct. Basically iv tried everything. I got a interview from River Island and they said they'd call if you got the job but I didn't get the job. Im in desperate need of a job or my parents will be kicking me out help

You go into places and ask if they have any vacancies and hand in your cv. Maybe you could try cafes?

Try mcdonalds, they take on a lot of students and young people.
How about joining an agency?
There seems to be a lot of warehouse jobs going in general (even more so running up to xmas) so they may be worth a try.

Honestly I’m kinda in the same position but I’m 17. 😬
I’d get someone to read over your CV to make sure you’re saying the ‘right’ stuff and ask people for help with those ridiculous scenario quizzes for some jobs- often people with experience can help you there. Other than that, I’d just say keep applying as that’s what I’m doing. Over Christmas there should be more stuff available hopefully, so a Christmas temp job is my plan atm

Try doing a 5 day lifeguard course and then work in a leisure centre. The pay is usually good and the only requirement is being able to swim.

You could do an internship or apprentenship, or start your own business.

And by business I don't mean a huge company, I mean you could offer a skill to someone. I'm 19 and I edit videos for companies and YouTubers which pays good. I've also done FB ads for businesses which is amaizng pay.
