    well burger king had a poster actually on the door asking people to hand in their cv's and i handed mine in, and then a week later I had a job here- yes most places are online but you will find that some shops till accept cv's

    Last summer i literally thought one day ' i need a job' which was after applying for months online and not getting anywhere, so i went into my local town and just wondered into every shop going and handed in my cv, and then lucky for me i saw burger king wanted people so handed in my cv there as well... it does seem to be a bit of a luck game these days - just go into town and try and spot any posters advertising jobs - places like poundshops ect ? I hope you do get a job soon as i know what it feels like to be without one :/
