>>16814359 >if they're fresh out of high school You must be joking if you think that's a problem at your age. Just go to a fast food or retail job or if you're really lucky and can land one, an office job
by applying to every single job, even ones they dont want or know they wont get. this way you at least get the chance to interview and learn how to properly do an interview.
ask your parents, ask your friends, ask your friends parents, ask your teachers, ask every single employee of every single store you enter if they know anywhere thats hiring (though make good small talk with the employees first).
most every job i had before this one i got based on a recommendation.
>>16814376 nobody will hire us anymore nobody fuckign wants us so many places use some bullshit "online application" process that's pretty much copypaste everywhere and you are never sure if anyone will ever even see your name or if it worked right. >go in person yeah, nah that doesn't work anymore nobody wants us anymore
>>16814382 You're a fucking retard. Jump through the hoops, or don't get a job. Stop bitching and do what they want. You are in no position to make demands of them, but you'll get hired you if you've done things the way they want and a position opens that they need filled quick.
>nobody wants us anymore
Haha your spiraling depression based on nothing factual made me laugh.
>seasonal work >ENTRY-LEVEL positions >capitalize on schoolwork you did. took a pc class, your Microsoft Office proficient. etc. >focus on professional skills: eager to learn, time management, responsive to feedback, etc. you need to do your time in shitty jobs to show that your worthy of more important work
Yes it does. Let me tell you a story. I was the GM at one of the major pizza chains a long time ago. I was responsible for vetting applications and interviewing people. Lots of the staff was under 20. Some were even still in high school.
Anyway, here's the story. Some high school kid really wanted a job. So he came in an filled out an application. I told him we weren't hiring at the time and to check back occasionally. He did. In fact he would come back a couple times a week. He did this for a month straight. Eventually I just hired him because he seemed like he had moxie and really wanted to work... Unfortunately he turned out to be a shit employee and I fired him. Did a complete 180 after I hired him. Point is if you keep trying someone will notice. I can guarantee you I'm not the only manager who has done this. Especially in the service industry because the turn over rate is insane.
Here's another one: I moved to a new city, I was like 19, walked around a mall and literally got a job within a week. After a few years I quit that job and again literally walked into a new restaurant that was being built and got a fucking job on the spot.
Quit making up excuses and get the fuck out there.
You go for shitty, low pay jobs that no one else wants because that's always where the work is. It's what you do when you have no experience, be it coming out of school, out of country, or out of career field. You start at the bottom and literally work your way up. My first 5 years after school I had almost 12 jobs trying to figure out what I wanted to do. These included McDonald's, Target, a local small business, a light and sound technician at an AV company, an HVAC installer, a sports coach, a laborer, and a driver. Maybe I'd you're lucky and look good you can model, or you might know someone who's dad can get you a job.
>>16814446 Except I do know and in fact a couple of us here do. We were all teenagers once. I started working when I was 15 pushing carts at a Target. I did that for two years. When I was 17 I started delivering Chinese food until I was 19. Then I was a busboy at a Panera Bread. Moved into the kitchen after a year. Became a shift supervisor after two. Quit there and became a shift supervisor at a McAllister's Deli but quit before we opened to move back home. Started working at a Domino's as a driver at 20. I was the GM by 23. So from 15 to 23 I worked my way up from shitty jobs to slightly less shitty jobs with better salaries.
I quit when I was 25 to finish my degree. Graduated at 27 and got a job in the oil patch making considerably more money than ever. My work experience, and consistent hard work through my working life, plus my educations helped land me the job. I'm 30 now. Point is I worked shitty jobs for a long time and worked my ass to get where I am. It's what we all do as adults.
>>16814481 >Spoiled enough Fuck you. My dad's a janitor and my mom's dead. Look who's fucking talking city boy, you got jobs flowing off every street corner and you're still so pathetic you can't land a single fucking retard job. And how you fucking thought getting a job is special only makes me wonder how a retard like yourself couldn't get a retard job. Anyone can get a job. Anyone except you.
Anyone with two brain cells would know that a big city has more job opportunities. Hence why lots of people in small towns commute for work to surrounding cities.
I mean a small town has ONE Wal-Mart that employs say 50 people. A big city has 15 Wal-Marts that employ 50 people. So one place has 50 jobs, the town, and once place, the big city, has 750 jobs. It's across the board for all businesses....
"nobody will hire us anymore. nobody fucking wants us"
That is the attitude of a Loser. You are right: No one wants to hire a Loser. Drop the Loser attitude and show some hustle. You have to out-hustle everyone else. Business owners want people who will hustle.
The only thing that matters about your first job is that you are reliable, you show up on time, and work hard.
That will demonstrate to your NEXT employer that you are worth paying more than minimum wage.
