    Jobseeker's allowance.
    Use websites like jobcentre plus, totaljobs, monster etc. I've had 3 phonecalls about jobs in the last week by uplaoding my CV to those sites.

    Nope. I tried summer after first year because my gf had been ill during the year so I was skint. They let me sign on but when I went in for my first payment they noticed I was going back to uni next September and told me to bugger off.

    My money has finally run out. I've been trying to get a job for about 3 months now, I've gone into shops, salons, restaurants, literally everywhere trying to hand out my Cv they all say apply online.
    So i apply online, and hardly anyone has got back to me.
    I literally dont know what to do.
    I have less than 10 pounds left, all my freinds are broke so i cant borrow off them, I already owe money to my parents and most other people. thankfully Ive paid my bills for this month but what about next month??
    what should i do??
    how did u guys manage to get jobs? (Assuming you work)
    anyone got any advice? would be much appreciated xx

    My dad hired me.

    Meh, I got a job a few weeks after that so it's all good. Just told the story to make sure they didn't go there, get signed on and get their hopes up about getting the money.

    I've been trying to find a job for five years. Nowhere at all will employ me.

    Go to a Job Centre and ask what to do there.

    Nope.
    Not entirely true aha, I knew somebody who went for an interview for job seekers allowance
    and when they asked him if he had a job or went to uni he just lied. Don't ask me how he got away with it though...
