    I've sent away applications for Morrisons, Tesco and Blockbuster. I just got the rejection letter from Morrisons today, and it will probably be the same for the other two.

    Anyone else having the same problem?

    There are several threads regarding job hunting/finding it hard to find a job.

    And there are many people in the same situation as you, myself included.

    Yeah I'm in a similar situation. Today I signed up at an employment agency. I don't know if that'll be any better, but it could be.

    wtf does 'gah' mean? By using baby words like that in your job application, i understand why you got rejected.

    also, what on earth is 'meh' supposed to mean?

    No it wont.

    I agree job situation is dire, went to almost every store in my town and fronted up asking for a job. Only got 3 application forms from all of them and even then still havn't heard back from those. Shiiiit.
