    Then find work experience. Employers aren't ready to part their money with someone who's never been employed before.

    Depends on your location, how far you're willing to travel, what jobs you're willing to do etc.

    I got my first job at 16 (all of five months ago), with no work experience and no CV (filled in an application form). However, it comes at the cost that I now have to get up at 5;45am every Saturday morning for £4.35 an hour, but that's how willing I was for work.

    Many of the people I know got jobs at 16/17 in supermarkets without previous work experience, but some of them had to apply 3/4 times. Just keep trying.

    Oh okay, thank you for all that information really helped .
    I normaly just apply for 2 and then just give up because i never get any responses Lol.
    But now i will keep applying untill someone actually contacts me telling me i got the job or even an interview.
    Lol.
    what kind of job was it to just fill in an application form?
    Thanks

    I was thinking of that, but with starting these a levels everything is so stressful i dont really have time to be volunteering in a charity shop and wasting hours of time.
    However i wouldnt mind a weekend job or even just a saturday job if it ment making money as i really need to save up for uni and just need the money.
    Thanks though i will see how it goes

    but if you say you're not getting a job because you've got no experience then perhaps volunteering is the way forward

    perhaps you're being picky? are you literally applying everywhere or just a select few places where you really want to work?

    It took me the longest time to find a part time job while I was at school. I really sympathise. Here are some suggestions...

    - local catering/service company. These hire lots of people, many college/university students
    - ask around family friends or friends of friends, post on facebook if need be. I got my first job by replying to a facebook post my friend made about a family friend looking for people to work for them
