    It's in the title basically lol

    Studying A2 at the mo, so it would need to be part-time and those jobs just seems impossible to get, especially in London.

    and plus i have no previous experience but i really want/need a job!

    The closest i've got is job interviews but they've all said if i had more experience, i would have got the job but i don't understand why i would need experience when some of them say they offer training ??

    Arghhhh! Anyone know if there's any jobs going, preferably in retail?? :erm:

    If you're in London have you tried looking at the London Eye/London Aquarium/Madame Tussaud's/London Dungeons? I used to work for the company and it's loads of young people, if you go to http://www.londoneyejobs.com they usually include all the jobs available in the london attractions, I think they're looking for people for february half term at the moment. Keep your eye on it because they always have new vacancies

    Lie on your CV and be prepared to work unsociable hours and crappy jobs to get your foot in.

    Probably a bad time to look for jobs. I've just finished a temp contract with River Island for the christmas period and it was actually a lot of fun

    My best advice when your first looking for work is to just keep applying to everything and you will get something. It takes a bit of luck at first :yep:
