Britbong who is looking for retail stuff but I've had no luck. I have no practical skill in something like admin or whatever but I feel so limited going for just one type of job at the moment
How can I get into a job I have no skill in? I want money that doesn't come from benefits. It depressed me.
How would I logically do it? There has to be a way.
develop the skill. etiher intern, shadow, or get education. i know thats not the answer you want to hear, but thats literally how the world works.
your other options are to fake it. i do have office skills but never had an office job, so i put down some more or less fake job experience on my resume. now i manage a business.
I understand. It's hard though. If for example wanted to expand my field into admin just to get a better job I would probably be expected to know specific skills I was never educated in.
Fucking system is set so you have to have a newborn crocodile's knowledge of a subject right off the bat to have a chance. It's sickening
OR, you learn about being an admin. freaking take a class, a seminar, an online course, or intern at an office. its easy to pick this sort of thing up and get promoted.
talk to other admin's and aks what they did education wise, and try to follow that.
Get an SIA licence and get a security job.
If you're on bennies JCP should pay the course but you'll need £200 to send off for the actual card.
You'll also need transport. A lot of these jobs are in remote places like solar farms and building yards.
It's a crappy career with very poor prospects for advancement but it's something.
