    Iam in Liverpool for more than 2 weeks, trying to find any type of job. Iam searching for a job in cleaning, warehouse, retail any other one you name it.
    I have already applied 150+ job offers not even half of them replied. Getting a job in supermarket is like a dream job. I cant even get a job in KFC or Mcdonald. I have registered myself in many agencies and I have used all the job websites no bloody result is coming.
    I really dont know what to do. Iam completely depressed and without no hope.
    If you know any job offers in Liverpool or near by please let me know.

    It would be illegal for employers to refuse your application because you're not British. Just make sure you have the correct documents to work in the UK, your applications are gramatically correct, and if invited to interview make sure you perform well (eye contact, handshakes...).

    Best of luck to you.

    Do you have the right to work in the UK?

    Cant see how you cna do 150 applications in 2 weeks or rather cant see how they cna have been of much quality. Get someone to look at your applications.

    Impossible to say without having someone look at your applications. Take it to your uni careers service. Sounds like some of the basics are wrong, but they cna check.
    How old are you?
