    Sell things on Ebay.
    If you've worked before, write to HM Revenue & Customs asking for a rebate on tax you may have paid when you shouldn't have (I got a cheque for £800 quid...)
    If you play a musical instrument, go busking in the town centre?

    Sell some stuff of yours that's not really important.

    Did you check if they have jobs in your University? Some universities offer jobs for students who arent able to support their selves so the uni offers them a job part time or full time. Let's say you have an experience under office work, they can offer you a job and then you get paid.

    Also, if you know how to play an instrument, you can go to the park and play there or at the mall. Its fun and it may help you pay your bills.
    One of my friends used to sing in the Park with his guitar and he get lots of money from people and he even got a job as a singer through doing that.

    (Original post by HaHaLOL)
    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
    Maybe you need to change your CV or your approach to job hunting as the one you are using obviously isn't working. It's unlikely at this stage you will get a job so close to Christmas so you'll have to wait until New Year now.

    I've worked at KFC and McDonalds in the past and from my experience they always have vacancies. As long as you don't completely balls up the interview, it's pretty much a guranteed job. Not the most glamarous of places to work but when your broke, you can't really afford to be fussy.

    Sell stuff.

    Shopping at Netto you can live in less than £5/week (a pack of instant mash and a tin of corned beef will last you for three meals etc.)

    Have you tried applying for a paper round at a newsagent?it's humiliating at this age but if you haven't then you aren't trying hard enough.

    You're a girl so put on a very small skirt and leave your
    dignity at home. You'll be able to eat for free for a while.

    Your CV is probably crap, along with the way in which you are applying, which is why you're not getting anywhere.
