So far, none. I'm going through college right now, but I applied to jobs where I didn't need a degree. The jobs I applied to where things I knew about, and all were retail because I can handle the public since I'm very patient and have a bubbly personality. I know 3 languages fluently, I've done a lot of volunteer work, and the people I put down as a reference are highly ranked at their job. The only reason why it took me so many was because I've never had a job before. Most of the them wanted someone with experience. I kept getting "how do you expect to get a job with out job experience?" However the real question was how does the company and the hiring managers expect me to have experience when I have never had a job before?

and these jobs your applying for are?? i get the feeling that's not all there is to it. and i got my first job at 17 working for cane's, 5th job i applied for... the problem is most likely that your ~20 and have never held a job. i wouldn't hire someone like that either.

and yeah that's probably it. I spent a lot of my time volunteering instead of actually getting a job. Apparently that was my biggest mistake

fast food restaurants and retail jobs. All for the lowest position I could possibly ask for. They all said they were hiring. They never called me back :[

just too let you know, it is possible to be too "bubbly" i worked with a guy at a movie theater that was like that. he got fired 2 weeks in because customers complained he was too happy.

also, the answer to any question is "tell the manager" when you take an online test

"I won't work in a place like mcdonalds, only bums do that" - "There are no jobs, I would do any job out there".

yeah its all the recessions fault and the immigrants stealing your mcdonalds jobs that you won't do anyway since you want the better jobs without any work experience.

I was saying that at first as well (the mcdonalds part) then I got hired at KFC and I was like "**** this is fun" xD I burnt my hands and arms A LOT though. :/ but yeah for anyone looking for a first job accept literally ANYTHING. If you do well, you can find a different job (better one) so much easier because you have work experience.

not true at all

Studying engineering and i'd gladly take a part time job in Mcdonalds. It's very hard to get your first job even if your willing to do pretty much anything

Its equally hard for anyone, the problem is a lot of people are calling it impossible when it is in fact not, it just requires effort.

I have seen many events and interview situations where people come in holed jeans and a t-shirt, that may be the new generation but a few years ago that just signified slobs. It sets a bad image and nobody wants to hire them.

Do mcdonalds require you to dress in a suit when asking for a job? no.
Does it help? yes.
Will people do it? no its to "awkward".

So despite claiming to be desperate for a job, plenty of people aim for the jobs that take time to work your way up to and only a handful realize that work experience is more important then the actual job to begin with. That is any work experience, not specific work experience.

The people going "I need work experience to work there but I need to work there to get the experience" are also looking at things wrong, since the sites aren't generally looking for specific experience, but people seem to think they do.

You claim you would gladly part take in a part time job, and if you are putting in effort every night between studying then you are in the handful who are actually trying.

major in music production. a good producer makes more money than a musician and musicians are always looking for someone to produce for them. also invest in your own makeshift studio and charge other people to use it. a friend of my makes beats for local singers and rappers and makes good money by both producing and charging people to use his audio equipment.

Your changes of taking off are very, very low and that's something you'll have to accept.
If you still want to try, it's really not all that hard. Just get your equipment and members and start signing up to play anywhere you can. Bars, restaurants, local gigs. Anything you can get. If you get lucky, you could possibly take off from there.

Word of advice: Use an instrument that bands typically don't use. If you look back, a lot of the most famous bands like the Doors or the Kinks used unique instruments to make their music stand out. You don't have to conform to the standard guitar-bass-drums band. Try and find another, lesser known instrument that you like the sound of and utilize it. It'll help you leave a more lasting impression.

Classical strings fit into a rock or pop environment unless you're going for a harder sound. Sitars have worked pleasantly in a lot of songs. Organs have worked before too. Slide whistles and pan flutes are some more.

My friend is in a band and they are really good, but three out of the four of them want to finish college before going on. (They haven't even started college yet, because of the summer vacation) I say good for them because if something happens down the line, like the band breaks up, you can still get a job. Think of college as a safety net. Would you rather work for a fast food place or follow your dream job after the band?

What happens if the band goes under? What will you have to fall back on? Not a dream job, but a job YOU like
