    So i have being job hunting for almost a year now (Applied to 100's of jobs) and never had an interview, only rejection e-mails of two company's. I say now my grades are bad D in both English and Maths, But i do have a C in science and a lot of practical skills. I also have Experience of running my moms shop whenever shes at fairs (shes in jewelry) but because she isn't making a lot of sales at the moment i don't get a lot of money out of it. Is really annoying me now. I don't understand why because my CV's good and i have experience. I can't do that get in with knowing someone as all my friends work a hour away or more as i moved to the next town.

    Maybe you are applying for too highly skilled jobs? Accept that you are underqualified and apply for a job which suits your grades. Just a suggestion, obviously I don't know what jobs you are actually applying to. Considering graduates are struggling to find jobs atm, maybe you need to lower your bar.

    If your unable to get even the most basic of jobs, try learning a skill and then flogging it. For example learn motor mechanics, then go around fixing peoples cars. Or learn paintin an decoratin, then fix up peoples houses for a bit of cash. Self employment I think its called.
