    So i want to get a job - I've just finished GCSE's and the only real experience I've got is volunteering at a charity shop. But I'm going abroad on july 27th - and I'm worried that I wont be able to get a job for 1 month as no one will take me if i tell them? Is it possible to get one, and should I tell them i am going on holiday before i ask?

    Apply for job, get offered job, inform them of your holiday in advance when you accept the job.

    It's perfectly normal to have prearranged plans when you accept a job.

    if it's just a holiday it shouldn't matter, just tell them when they make the offer (unless you're asked at interview), it may make some people turn you down but lots of people will have holidays arranged so I wouldn't worry

    if you mean you're moving permanently don't bother looking, you'd have to hand in your notice before you started (getting started somewhere new usually takes a few weeks)
