    I spammed every shop with my CV, even if they didn't have a vacancy. xD

    I tried it a couple of weeks ago and received 2 replies. One from Sports Direct and one from Next. I had an interview at Sports Direct but their pay was like £3! So I didn't take that. With the job at Next I was pretty gutted because I pretty much had the job in the bag, but it was compulsory for me to work on a specific day. This day happened to be the day I am on holiday! So yeah I am still jobless

    Try applying online, these replies I got were both ones which is applied for online. Most big companies recruit online.

    Did I do it in summer? Nooooo! Do it well before, that is the mistake I made last year, I went around this time and everyone had hired for the summer.

    Also because I am going to university in September, not many people would want me (until I get to uni) so I could only really apply for a summer temp job.

    Sorry for the late reply, student room crashed on me.
