    I have now finished year 11 and I am looking for a summer job. I have done everything from handing cv to shops, applying online etc. I desperately need a job but I don't know what to do. Please can you offer me some advice, it would be much appreciated!

    You've left it extremely late for a summer job but anyway

    So you're 16 right?
    The best thing to do is honestly just keep trying anywhere and everywhere
    I think my best advice is apply to places other people might not've thought off

    Carry on applying to everywhere you can think of. Eventually someone will want you.

    At this stage you are really only likely to get a job by word of mouth. Just keep mentioning to everyone that you are looking for a summer job. Going through a formal advert > deadline> recruitment > induction process for a formal job is not likely to work for a summer job.

    Also, get your CV checked by someone hoi is an employer, it clearly isn't working for you at the moment.
