    You can alway apply for a permenant job and the hand you notice in saying you dont like it. I wouldt advercate this as your likely to get a bad refrence in future but desperate times call for desperate messures
    It's actually illegal to write negative references so the only danger would be not getting a reference at all.

    I've just activated my student credit card. So tempted to use it right now but its strictly 'for emergencies' :p:
    Me not having a job bad overdraft and having to pay rent before I get my student loans is emergency enough :rolleyes:

    Really well i suppose you could also just not write the job down on your CV if you only doing it for the cash.

    Well it'd probably benefit you more to have the previous job on the CV. You'd just have to hope that they gave you a good reference, or contemplate which was less favourable to an application - a suspicious refusal from a previous employer to supply a reference or not putting the details of the job down at all.

    I'm still trying but deep down I know it's in vain. Looks like the only money I'll have for Uni is the Job Seekers Allowance I save up.
