I'm in Year 13 and have been searching for a job since March but have had absolutely no luck. I'm going to keep on trying but I'm worried that when I get to university I still won't be able to find out due to lack of experience and I'll really need one by then. Did anyone get their first job during university? How did you find it?

Honestly no need to bump one minute after posting.

It depends on the demands of the retailers or companies around. For me it was easy because I already had a job in my town and I just transferred to another store. Just hand your CV out and look online, something will come up.

apply at mcdonalds, kfc etc, i’ve been told that they hire anyone and even if you don’t like it, at least it’s experience, after that you could probably get a better job in a shop but it’s always best to have experience
if you did dofe and worked in a charity shop for your volunteering section then that would count as experience too i guess
