Is there any way you could call the places you turned jobs down to see if they have anything else going?
Its a long shot but you never know it may actually work.

Tell me about it. Ive been back from University for 2 months and have only just found a job paying £4.60 an hour, I was earning 4 times that during my GAP year. Had a fair few responses saying that in the current economic climate it was finantially unviable to employ me for the foreseeable future.. Great!

Check council jobs in your area, supermarkets, fast food and DWP. They are all great summer jobs. Failing that sign up with every agency possible and work in a call centre.

Well I thought I would never work with food but I've been stuck in Subway for 19 months :rolleyes:

Call centre work isn't that bad, some places are obviously pants. I worked in a holiday call centre when I was 16, it was fun but stressful. GOOD money though, I only worked part time for 2 months and earned nearly £900?
Everyone tends to be very friendly, the people on the line sometimes are really obnoxious but you just don't take it to heart.

Basically if you are desperate do anything. It's only for a few months and you will learn some valuable skills... or just learn to avoid working in a place like that ever again :p:

Oh and I forgot, I recently applied to do casual stewarding for local events in my area e.g. jazz in the park, carnival. If you local council do anything like that have a look for those, it's not regular work but you will only need to do it for a weekend and the odd days. Pay from £6 upwards AND you get a fluorescent. Oh yeahhh :cool:
