    I was NEET for 2 years when I was 16-18 and I wasn't even offered an interview after I applied for hundreds over those 2 years, now I'm 21 and just finished A-levels and I've been applying to dozens over the past few weeks and the exact same thing is happening. I've applied for all sorts, from cleaning to selling jewellery.

    Even voluntary work I've had nothing and bills in the house are running tight.. what can I do?

    I have no experience at all except for being with my family's store front for 2 years but because it's my parents most people aren't going to believe me.

    Anybody else?

    Not really, I found a job as a project manager with zero experience and no degree. You have to know what you're doing. It helped that I was at an ex poly uni when I applied as they had amazing links with employers that they knew for decades and could thus get me into places i'd otherwise have had zero chance of.
