    I am 15 years old and I have recently received my national insurance number. I am still in education but in my final year and am looking for a job. I have tried looking online but got no hope is there anything else I can try or do??

    When you're under 16 the best chance you have at finding a job is by asking in person or being referred through a friend or family member. Most big companies aren't set up in a way that encourages under 16s to apply so your best bet is to ask local businesses, when I was in high school a lot of my friends worked at chip shops or green grocers and things like that. If you don't have any experience it can be hard to get your foot in the door so it might be worth volunteering for a bit, charity shops are a good way to get retail experience and they're always looking for people to help out.
