Working can be quite fun, you know. But if you insist on minimal effort, then put on your oldest clothes, preferably ragged ones. Don't wash for a week or two. Now you're ready to...beg.

Just find a quiet corner and put in front of you a plastic cup with a cardboard sign.

Just work OP!

Actually i have not, i just rang a friend who finished 6th form and he has been granted permission to claim job seekers allowance.
Errr, yes. That's not claiming job seekers allowance while at university, is it?

I almost signed on during my gap year after leaving sixth form (had my reasons - didn't in the end). You were certainly allowed to. The bottom line is you were unemployed and should be searching for a job. There's nothing wrong with that, legally.

This is entirely different to being a student at university - you are considered to be in full time higher education.

I you know anyone claiming JSA while at university they are a benefits cheat, by the rules of the law.

That's like work to me though. Soooo much effort. It would mean actually tidying up and actively seeking things to sell.

Unless I just made crap here and now.....
take photos of yourself naked and sell them? sell used underwear? surely that isn't too hard :p:

Or you could do some western union money transfer scams :p:

I take no responsiblity for any illegal activity that may occur as a result of my suggestions.

Do you have any details contact details or anything?
Sounds like a cool job I would consider. Thanks.
No sorry it's run locally by housewives and stuff, but i found out by looking in my local newspaper jobs section, then they kept contacting each time there were new books to deliver.

If it's not in the newspaper try their websites?

If he's finished 6th form, then he's not a student, is he?:confused:

Use some of your savings money to get cheap flights to go somewhere non-EU on weekend breaks, write travel articles to flog when you get back to the UK, perhaps arrange some escorting jobs whilst there, then on your way back pick up duty free **** and booze to sell at just under full price back home.

Trust me no one, and I mean no one, wants naked pics of me

There may be some sick people who may want my used underwear though. Hmmm, thanks for the idea!

How do you go about buying shares, where do you purchase them from, how do you purchase them, etc.

Also how do you go about selling them?

i've come to accept that one simply can't magically get money without a job.

so what are the easiest jobs? ones with the most flexible times?
like where you choose the hours?

I don't mind hard work really, it's just that i'm off and on holiday practically every other week this holiday (lucky me!) so I can't really get a normal job.

Give blood - I think they would pay you for that. Or sell your kidneys.

When people say 'eBay' what do you actually mean?
Selling your possessions? Or just buying cheap then selling on?

Obviously selling your possessions, however the other thought is actually a good idea but wouldnt work or would get you very little profit in this day and age my friend.

Unfortunately for me, nobody wants a big ol' six ft 5inch rugby player babysitting their kids. It's not fault I have hands the size of babies!

And who wants tutoring in the Summer holidays??
