i need to get a part time job preferably retail, i’ve been applying since two years ago always on indeed or those online websites, sometimes on the company’s websites too but they either don’t get back to me or decline and say they had too many applicants even when i’m early!

my friends got jobs at amazon and mcdonald’s but even maccies turned me down and amazon showed no vacancies in my area.

do i need to go in person and ask for a job?
i’m scared to go about it

I apply through Indeed as well and I've applied for about more than 50 jobs and only had one interview. You just need to keep persevering and check every day to see if more jobs have appeared and apply for as many as possible x hope this helps and any more questions please ask

If you live near some small independent shops you could go in and ask them but this probably wouldn't work for big chain shops such as primark etc. My friend went into our local village and just asked for a job at a cafe and got one so I guess it depends

Yh it's so annoying. I'm really desperate for a job too and I know I would be perfect for all the jobs I applied to but never hesr back from them. My friend got a job so quickly and then got offered another one. Our luck will come at some point. I recently had an interview and still waiting to hear back. So fingers crossed and good luck to you too😀😀🤞🤞

I went and asked places, and looked for signs on windows. It took me ages too.
Just keep trying, you’ll get one soon

Hi! wispyweetabix

I'm sorry to hear this. It's so difficult to find one, I know myself.

I'd recommend going to a job centre or careers centre. They help you with your CV and interview skills. I sed them before I went to university and they help me find work in my gap year.
Also, a lot of local businesses you have to go in and ask, as they won't advertise online.

Hopefully, there will be new opportunities soon.

Best wishes
