    I haven't been able to find a summer job and now have only 30 pounds in my account- never get past interview stage
    FInding internships have been unsuccessful
    I am beginning to get jaded as EVERY SINGLE ONE OF MY FRIENDS- have a summer job and internship opportunities.

    It upsets me to the point i havent been speaking to any my friends as for the first time i am getting jealous at their success

    It has caused my self-esteem to drop- is it because I am now questioning my looks to why people don't like me enough to hire me

    what can I do

    Hiya,

    Don't feel to down in the dumps about it, since summer jobs are very competitive to get. Perhaps look into catering?They recruit new waitresses/waiters/baristas frequently and you could find yourself with quite a few jobs (some even have long shifts that last for like 10-11 hours) and will put some money in your pocket.

    Where are you from? If you're from London or Cardiff I'd be able to recommend you some places to look at.

    ive tried those events- and got cheated on, i realized they were very untruthful ending up in spending money with getting to earn until the 5 shifts down the line

    i just feel like there is no point
