    Hey guys!

    I've been looking a job or nearly 3 years and I don't know what else to do.
    I have applied for any role you can think off, to places way far away from home. I've done everything I possibly could do, I'm so desperate for a job but because I'm a student the working hours are quite a restriction and it's so hard to find weekend jobs.

    I do actually have a job but I don't consider it much because it's only £12 a week as a dance teacher on a Primary school. I just want something that I could make at least £50 a week or something :/

    So I guess I'm just asking for advice. I might be missing something or doing something wrong.

    Any advice will be considered. thanks

    Want me to check your CV?! If you're on TSR I'll bet you're pretty intelligent but it might just be something simple that you've missed 'cause you've looked at it so often?

    Also, couldn't you teach at another school or is that not possible? Thre's definitely fewer jobs around at the moment and I guess employers want people who can commit to lots of hours which is hard for us students! Sorry to hear you're having a rough time

    Yes I would like for you to check my CV because maybe it's not professional enough.
    I can't teach another school because I finish college quite late on the other days of the week :/

    Universities always want students as cleaners since they know you're going to be there anyway.

    Sex line? I know a girl who does this for £8.12/hour. He basically sits in an office cubicle talking to pervs whole she's on facebook and she loves it coz it's so easy.

    Retail and bar work are common, the best advice i have is print off 50 CV's and apply everywhere, put your availability on. Also look on the Job Centre website everyday as well as Reed and Monster.

    care job? they got massive shortage of people there.. you could even try to get a nightshift job and earn even more.. if you get one of those nightshift jobs where you just need to be there on standby you could even study while you work

    how brilliant is that?

    (i am currently starting to apply for that)

    Most 'adult chat' whether on the phone or via text/online chat are actually very low paying - you have to work hard keeping your number of ppl and amount of time they stay on the line at a good target. You can see this on moneysavingexpert.com where that thread is all about making extra money from 'a saucey new job' but is so extensive it covers phones, texts, emails, online chat, webcams, etc. Its a lot like survey sites, you dont get much, it takes a long time to work up credits to transfer money into your account, not the easy thing everyone thinks etc.

    Of course there are the ones as suggested before but those ridiculously simple, well-paid jobs are the exception not the rule.
