    Hello everyone,

    I am struggling to get a part time jobs.Most jobs request online applications but unfortunately I have been unsuccessful so far.

    I want a part time job at a supermarket but every time I apply they reject my application or they don't get back to me.
    Any suggestions ?
    This is my last resort.

    What type of jobs are you looking for and what kind of experience do you have? It may be that your online applications don't sell you the best it could - have you had someone to check over your applications before you submit them.

    Have you tried looking at other types of job like waiter/waitress, barman, receptionist?

    What kind of volunteering have you done? It may be that you aren't selling your skills and experience well in your applications. If you are unsuccessful, you should always try to ask for feedback so you know how to improve for next time.

    Have you had any check your CV or applications before you submit them?
