    Hello all, I'm in need of advice...

    I'm in need of money to insure my car when I pass my test and to save up for university.

    However there are no jobs here that I can do... I've applied in about 50 different places, asked in about 200 places, searched online, registered with job websites (monster, jobsite, reed), I've looked on the jobcentre website and been to one in town and there are no jobs avaliable for me!

    All the jobs are 30hours+, require experience, or some qualification. The only jobs that are available that I can do are cleaner jobs, which I've applied to and only been rejected.

    Any ideas on how I could make some money?

    Thanks

    My friend got her job by ringing a few times after handing her C.V in, I guess it showed she was keen.

    I've applied to work at the same place and they just emailed me, asking me to send my c.v in a different format which I'm praying is a good sign! I'd advise you to also make sure you get the manager's email, that way at least you know it's gone straight to them.

    I don't live near London, and being over eager in a job doesn't always work out.

    I'm in the same position, so I know how you feel . You probably just have to keep on trying at applying jobs though.

    Failing that, you could also think about starting your own business? Something small, like you could maybe create things to sell to people, or some sort of service that may be needed in your area or online. But you would need a good idea first.
