    I have no experience other than a couple months at a off-license, though literally everywhere I apply rejects me. Last summer I applied for ~15-16 jobs, for all of which I wasn't even interviewed?

    Is it my CV?

    I'm going to start applying for jobs next week as my last exam is on the 27th of June, so I can start working ASAP after that.
    Need to start saving up for my year abroad..

    I recon I applied for over 90 part time jobs over 6 weeks (3 interviews out of those) before I got offered a job and that's with 2 years of volunteering in a charity shop. Definitely redraft your Cv but 15 applications isn't much at all really.

    Cheers for the confidence boost :laugh:

    I'll redraft my CV before I start applying.
    Would it be OK for me to put a little note on my CV stating that I won't be able to start work until my last exam?

    It felt like a long time before I had much luck with finding a job but persevere and you ll get there
    You can pop your availability in your cover letter or some online applications let you put an available from date in

    It can be hard, and a lot of people are in your position.
    Try places like mcdonalds who take on a lot of students. Not the best job ever, but t least something until you find something better.
