and your degree is in??
User avatar #112 to #10 - loveablekiller (06/28/2012) [-]
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 only reason i hadn't had other jobs is because i failed the online tests.. i was too honest.
#121 to #112 - bausch ONLINE (06/28/2012) [-]
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.
User avatar #124 to #121 - loveablekiller (06/28/2012) [-]
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
User avatar #123 to #121 - loveablekiller (06/28/2012) [-]
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 :[
#125 to #123 - bausch ONLINE (06/28/2012) [-]
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.
#126 to #125 - bausch ONLINE (06/28/2012) [-]
and a little too invasive as a result. it was just creepy
User avatar #127 to #126 - loveablekiller (06/28/2012) [-]
trust me I'm not invasive. I feel like awkward enough asking if someone needs help. lol
#128 to #127 - bausch ONLINE (06/28/2012) [-]
also, the answer to any question is "tell the manager" when you take an online test
#51 to #8 - bearbar (06/27/2012) [-]
Took me none. You have to know people. That's just about the only way to get a job as a teen

"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.
User avatar #54 to #45 - fxremastered (06/27/2012) [-]
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.
User avatar #71 to #45 - glasgowrangers (06/27/2012) [-]
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
User avatar #76 to #71 - Shramin ONLINE (06/27/2012) [-]
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.

entrepreneurship is easy! You don't have to start up your own company or anything. I just started teaching private swim lessons and tennis lessons at the pool where I lifeguard. I'm about to start making more money through lessons than my actual lifeguard job. Go out there and be somebody FJ Community. We're at least smarter than 9gaggers
User avatar #92 - GoodGood (06/27/2012) [-]
in order to get a job you need job experience. How the **** do you get job experience without getting a job? and don't say volunteer because it's not looked at the same.

Maybe if they majored in something useful to the workforce instead of degrees in russian literature...

With the kind of job she'll be doing I won't be seeing her face
User avatar #38 to #35 - MadDanKiid (06/27/2012) [-]
But what if she looks up and asks if she's doing it right or something. Gotta take this into account, man.

By the way, I'm kidding.
