Is anyone else finding it increasingly difficult to find work because they are a student? i seem to be getting turned away from temp agencies for being a student, or they fob me off saying they will get back to me even though it has been over a month since i signed up.

i really need to find work experience and i have another three months before i go back to uni and i am starting to run out of time as i will be graduating next year and fear being umemployed forever! :'(

does anyone know where i could find student friendly vacancies for the summer? or do you think lying is the best way to secure a job. i really need money and am quickly running out of options!

any help is greatly appreciated!

thanks x x x

thanks a lot for your post poisonjam! i dont think the lying was a very good idea either but i get so frustrated(sp?) by it all sometimes. it feels like as though students are discriminated against sometimes

there is a connexions near me so i might try that next week...i really dont mind working in a factory or anything like that, i just really need to build up some experience this summer and will take practically anything! lol.

No problem! I really recommend them even if i don't get my job, the process had been great. Was in the same position as you (applied online) on Tuesday the 4th, rang the number which comes up at the end and arranged my telephone interview for the Thursday. They rang me promptly, and told me straight away after the interview that i'd been successful, and sorted out my face to face interview for the following Monday. They even sent me stuff via fax, e-mail desperately when I found i was missing some info which i needed for the interview (lines closed at 6pm; i rang on a friday at 5:45pm for info for my interview on Monday) and the emailed it out straight away and the people on the other end are just sooo helpful). If i get a job it really will be the most ideal job process i've ever gone through and i'll have nothing but praise for them.

Thanks. Well your role might have been different but for mine I had to pass an online test kind of thing as well as the usual details. If i was successful in that it gave me a number to ring.
