    I've done over 50 part time job applications online, and always got the reply of unsuccessful. I've even let my sister apply for some jobs for me incase I am doing anything wrong, however, I am still unsuccessful.
    I am 16 years old in college, and only go in 3 days per week. I was looking at part time jobs, however, cannot get one.
    I have applied all over, including: debenhams, primark, asda, tesco, morrisons, mcdonald's, parcel sorter, warehouse, home bargains, and much much more. But all of them reply with a no. I've had one interview with mcdonald's, which lasted 5 minutes, however, I received a unsuccessful reply. Any tips with this? As I really could do with a part time job with all the spare time I have. Thank you

    How is your CV looking have you got anyone to look over it besides family.
    Xmas Jobs are the best to get and easiest around this time you just need to keep trying and don't let being rejecting put you down because it takes one company to say yes and you have a job. Keep your head up.

    Do some CV boosting like volunteering in a local retail store such as Sue Ryder, NCS or DoE. Also its better to spend ages on one job application rather than spamming out loads of generic applications which just look rushed.

    Thanks for the advise! I'll definitely keep applying, and looking for jobs on a daily basis.

    That's pretty impressive so far but the more the better tbh. At my interview for Waitrose they focused more on my volunteering rather than the 3 previous part time jobs I had, but it really depends what the company is looking for.

    Also if you do get to the interview stage 'Glassdoor' is amazing for preparing for interview questions etc.
