I need advice on what to do to get out of this rut I'm in, I've only got £10 to my name now.
I'm 23 and been a NEET for 2.5 years. Got no education past highschool.
I've figured my best hope is to go for call centre work or look for work in a warehouse? I'm aware I have zero skills and with not having a car my work choice is extremely limited.
What is my best option here?
Ultimate goal is to work a minimum wage job whilst I get some more qualifications through night classes and eventually the open university.
For some reason I guessed Scotland, no idea why. Your best bet would be factory/warehouse work.
I've never even worked before also at 23 and next week I'm having a trial at a warehouse, they don't care about your lack of experience as long as you just go in there and carry yourself well and don't take no for an answer straight away, they won't lose anything by giving you a trial day.
I've applied to countless things over the years with no responses, I've been in person, online, on the phone, nothing. Warehouses are the only place you'll get a chance. Try applying directly and also just as an extra try recruitment agencies near you who find employees for factories and warehouses.
I live in L O N D O N so finding a warehouse job was a little tricky. My best friend up north is literally tripping in and out of low level work, he's had over 10 jobs in 6 months.
I am a 22 year old NEET aswell , and most people from my country come to your country to work (Did it myself for 1 year) while living in a closet room with bed only and a small cabin for clothes. So stop ur whining get a minimum paid job (i worked in construction) and save that money. U dont realise how good u have having a roof on top of your head with a free meal from your parents.
Yes. Not as if you have any other options.
Also I forgot to mention, fucking Gumtree, its great for finding shit and is actually where I landed mine. After I applied they sent out an open invitation to just come in for semi-formal interviews. I went, talked with the guy and got a trial day coming up.
I hope Scotland isn't as bleak and depressing as I'm thinking.
Spend £5 of that £10 on a gumtree ad
There's a looking for work section.
Put an ad up saying you're looking for work. You got to sell yourself man, guarantee you will get a call for some casual work then you'll have a bit more money
The reality is you will put it off for years, or attempt and fail after realising how much hard work it takes to sustain a job and study.
And after see'ing how much it takes just to live in the UK while trying to save money likely never do it
Well what the fuck is his other option? He needs to work, and to get himself out of the min wage cuckdom he needs additional qualifications. He's got to try at least you fucking putdown.
>you fucking putdown
My post was sugar coated so If you want to talk sit around and drink tea and talk about your dreams or whatever go to /b/ or something, this board is for people to talk about reality.
And put down isn't even a fucking morsel of what reality is you fucking underachiever
In the real world you suck dick left and right to get into a big company, BEG them to put you under tuition that THEY decide and then you say THANK YOU or go straight back to that 20k salary.
If you're willing to get a job you'll probably hate, Aldi (at least in my area) are always looking for staff because they burn people out so quickly.
£8.40 an hour as of this month and they're always opening new stores. I was on a 25 hour contract but worked closer to 40 hours a week. Your days off are random so you might get monday/thursday off or something. You can start as early as 6am and finish at late as 10pm, you can do up to 10 hour shifts with only a half an hour break and more than likely as the new guy you'll be stuck on the till all fucking day.
It's tedious as fuck and they are completely autistic about rules and the managers are jobsworths but it's good money as far as retail cuckery goes. (I left after saving up a few grand)
Why not join the armed forces? The Army and Navy have always got adverts on the telly and you don't need to be the brains of Britain or exceptionally fit to get in. £16k+ as a basic squaddie/rating and at the very least you can pick up some skills along the way
You could start an AAT course and would be able to land an accounting assistant job almost immediately (in London anyway...)
All in all it is very easy to get into accounting if you don't mind it
you're 23 man, you're still bulletproof. just go get any job that will hire you and start earning some paychecks. any amount of income is better than 0 income. save your money, don't spend it on anything stupid. if you work consistently until your 25 you'll be able to move out and have a decent start.
What the actual fuck are you babbling on about, are you even aware of the topic of the thread or have you frothed so much that you can't see?
OP is a NEET who wants a low level job and to also do minor study if he can. What the shit does that have to do with all this bollocks you've just typed out? Did you get fired or something and want to rant about unrelated shit? Go vent elsewhere faggot.
I'm currently in an institution where I know for certainly that:
>1 "deer-in-headlights"-tier female has fucked her way to the top
>an arbitrary/unnecessary position was created for a girl to keep her boyfriend, that she is also the boss of, employed and not made redundant.
Is it like this everywhere? I thought "sucking dick" were isolated scenarios?
I lived in the UK and did callcenter work. Even for that you generally need 6 months to 2 years of experience.
I got lucky. Lied on my CV and they didn´t check anything .
what's the pay? working hours? transport?
any specific skills needed?
>try recruitment agencies
actually, the first thing you do is go to an agency. in my experience you get a job interview (training) the very next day after applying.
low-level work in hotels, restaurants and such... even odd jobs like moving furniture.
What about considering going into trades? Get an apprenticeship and work your way up, eventually you could probably own your own business
You'll earn more than minimum wage and you can still go to night school to learn
Dude, you have to sell something in this world to make the money. Start washing cars at a car lot and work your way up learning the business. You will get there. I am wealthy. Wealth is built over a lifetime. There is no shortcut. Settle in for the long ride.
Apply at Tesco. They'll hire fucking anyone. If they don't take you, apply for other supermarkets.
Wait for the end of the financial year first; they're all over budget for payroll this time of year.
pretty much this - it's impossible to not find a minimum wage job in London.
>janitor at anywhere inc.
also, you'd be better off moving to a low cost of living place - cheaper rent, cheaper food, same minimum wage.
that´s true. At my local Tesco they even employed mentally handicapped people during the Christmas period.. So you had drooling ´I can count to potato´´ people behind the cash registers. Not joking.
also there is a lot of informal work everywhere.
A friend of mine did house clearances. He hired all kinds of people, Romanians, Bulgarians people with extensive criminal records etc etc . He doesn´t care as long as the works get done. He paid them all cash.
Fake a CV, get a friend to be a reference. Then you'll get a job. Carpet cleaning and water damage restoration are good starting careers well paid. Then get a used laptop and study programming, Linux and DevOps online. Your life will change drastically if you stick to it. Learn python, DevOps, aws. All free to learn online.
>Then get a used laptop and study programming
No, don't do this. The world doesn't need another shitty coder. If you're not gonna seriously study it and put in your 10,000 hours you're just wasting your time.
