    Can anyone help me about how to get a part time job? I want a part time job at a shop/restaurant or wherever just to improve my communication and meet new people and stuff and I don't really know how because I've never had a job before
    Well you need to create a CV/Resume if you haven't already got one. Then again since you haven't a job before it might be short, nevertheless you should just fill it with your details, your grades, and perhaps put in your aspirations and goals in life.
    Make yourself look as ambitious and keen and hardworking as possible.

    And also stress you are also a team player.

    Generally speaking the internet is the way to go, gumtree.com for example or craigslist.

    Also look in local newspapers.

    Give your CV to everyone. Make it no more than one page.

    Not forgetting, of course, that he published the second volume of his memoirs recently in which he slates Sarkozy something rotten:

    I am well aware and once I have finished 'La République imaginée (1870-1914)' I will read it... he has written quite a lot though as it is like 600 pages a book :eek:

    No. Just print off lots and go in. First you ask if they are hiring, if they say yes the next steps are obvious if not you ask if you can leave a CV for the future. Many will throw it away, some wont. Longer than a page and they all will.

    Many places have their own forms, in which case unless they are hiring you are on to the next one.

    I am personally not that bothered as there is corruption in quite a few places in government but I am however worried for his health as if it is indeed true that he has dementia then this trial should not go ahead as it could speed up the advancement of the disease which personally I do not want to see happen to him as he was a good president, who cares what he did as Mayor? not me.

    Well I usually say no more than two pages, but since he hasn't had any jobs before that probably wouldn't apply to him.

    It depends though as if you are going for shop assistant/floor roles they will but if you are going for something slightly more professional 2 pages is about right... providing you have the experience

    Why only one page? Not that I have lots to write about, but I'm just curious.

    Although he voiced himself and humoured himself, it doesn't detract from the fact that Rush Limbaugh is a turd.

    France

    .....shame the singer is black

    (don't worry that was a joke)
    (I mean it was a joke about the black thing not the decent song from France bit)

    Aye but you go for office jobs and have experience. You need some sort of skill for the jobs you do presumably.

    Indeed TF but this is his first job.

    Because they won't care and one page is easily doable.

    I believe you mean you wonder if a vegan would wear a coat.

    Now I do, but before my current job I hadn't really worked a proper office job I had only worked part time.
    My jobs included working in a cattery cleaning cages, shelf stacker for a supermarket, undertaker, shop assistant in a wine shop, and so on.

    After college I just went for anything and everything. It wasn't that great but now it's paying off as I have quite a lot of broad experience. Plus I'm a likable guy you know :cool:

    Try supermarket work. People your age get it all the time. You don't neccessrily need prior experience, in fact often you don't at all.
    It's what I did when I were your age. I worked for Waitfrose for a year and a half.

    Also, for next year I already have a job (sponsored degree technically counts as employment, so I am employed by the company) and I get £5800 a year. If I were to get a part time job, how much could I earn a year without paying tax?
