    Volunteer at a charity shop for a little while, then you'll have some experience under your belt.

    I organised tons of charity events at my old college. Nearly all of them infact. Is this any good?

    A friend of mine was actually rejected my McDonald's quite recently. Pretty much means you have failed at life..
    As for getting a job just apply pretty much anywhere and everywhere. If you can get an interview and you come across as confident and sociable your pretty much sorted.

    I've applied for 11 places or so and never hear back.
    Might be because the people are always putting my form somewheree when i had it in and it gets lost. I applied to like:
    Boots
    Marks and Spencer
    Zavvi
    Whsmith
    Allied Carpets.
    woolworths.
    Argos.
    Game

    i cant work at sainsburys, they treated me like crap so i left


    and they say they if they dont get back to you in two weeks you have been unsuccesful, why is it so hard for me to get a job.

    Have you tried any of the online applications?

    I'd reccomend being as persistant as you can though, ring up every few days and see if they still are looking for staff because with Christmas vacancies they tend to come and go pretty frequently so its good to be up to date with what positions are on offer.

    I was thinking the same thing a couple of weeks agao, kept applying at places like Boots, Argos, Laura Ashley, Whittards... but they were all taken

    Anyway, since then i looked at websites for the hotels/B&B's around me and i got a job at a posh hotel asa a spa assistant , i also put up a babysitting advert and i am babysitting too. I think if you look at more local things then you could find a more interesting job easily and they tend to respond quickly.

    It depends what sort of place you want to work, is it just shop work?

    Anywhere really that's part-time and no longer than 15 hours a week.

    In my experience, it's rather a question of who you know.. I know.. It sucks.. But if you want a job, tell people about it... Family, friends, neighbors, teachers, coach etc.. People that know (and like ) will help you find a job and that's the way it is.. Why do you think fat old guys still run americas huge companies?!?! They are put there through their connections and together they form a group that become a family, very much like the maffia And if something happens, they just change the position from one company to another.... So if you really want a job, be out there, talk to people and find your family

    Arrivederci
