      tbh, most people get lucky with getting jobs when they're younger. like knowing a family member who can get them one, or having a rich dad so they can work where he does. that's what happened with my brother - he got a job where my dad worked. but my dad retired early, like 2 years ago.

      application forms rarely work. virtually no one I know has had success with application forms, especially since the recession. all they do is reject you with a generic reason and no company wants to hire what they see as unreliable, inexperienced students who they know they're not going to keep for long. even for the part time roles.

      I know some people who have gone in and asked for work in loads of different places and eventually got jobs that way. Face to face, it's harder for places to just reject you without explanation.
      :awesome:

      its been harder for me to get a job now, even though i have retail experience from when i worked at boots and waitressing experience from working for my dad than when i had absolutely no experience when i was 16 and first applied at boots :sigh:

      I want a real life hug. Although I'm rubbish at hugs really. I always pull away first or do an awkward half hug thing.

              I just start touching people inappropriately when drunk. Also alcohol for me is like some kind of truth serum.:mmm:
