    I have been searching jobs (17 years old) such as Waterstone and rymans but when i search up their cv form it asks questions on your retail experience; however i have none so i was wondering if anyone got a job without having any experience.

    You can get jobs at places without experience, its just a bit harder.
    Places like mcdonalds take on a lot of students, maybe give them a try. Other places that seem to take on a lot of students (e.g. subway, restaurants etc) might be worth a try.
    Is there anyone you know who has any vacancies at their place of work that would be suitable? In some instances its not what you know its who you know.

    You may surprise yourself. I certainly didnt think i was cut out to work in a fast food place like mcdonalds. But i was there for 9 years.
