not all companys offer this unfortunately

a company will ALWAYS take an unpaid intern... even if its just getting coffe for 3 months, then you can put that company down on your resume. If a recruiter asks what you did there, you can ******** some intern work or tell the truth.

I'm just sick of people saying they're stuck in the experience loop... it is fairly easy to get experience.

if my company threw an intern at me id be very suprised (im a welded chain operator in a factory)

The thing is that even a free intern costs the company
#22 to #8 - elaxx (09/09/2013) [-]
Not always... it requires a lot of paper work. At least here... They would rather give their employees more work for the same salary than bothering with interns.

Yeah, because making coffee is going to help people go up the corporate ladder.

I applied for work experience at 2 different supermarkets (I'd do more but it doesn't come up very often) about 2 weeks ago, near where I'm going to be going to university, and I've heard nothing back.

Applying doesn't count for much.
Because applying can be as simple as handing out resumes and filling out application forms, and most places, even if they aren't hiring, will take them and put them on a stack a foot and a half tall, just so they don't have to put out a "help wanted" sign when they need to hire.

If you actually want to find a job, ask your friends, ask your family, go online to places like workopolis and indeed.

Saying "I applied for X amount of places" doesn't account to much because it's essentially saying, I dug 43 holes while digging for treasure, yeah, you might get something off of luck, but chances are, you aren't doing it in a manner that will get you what you want/need.

Don't read this and assume I think that you're a lazy bastard or anything, but it's better to apply at a smaller amount of places that you can actually do and not hate, than to apply wildly and go with whatever falls in your lap
User avatar #50 to #36 - thelastamerican (09/09/2013) [-]
I don't agree. I needed a job and handed out my resume all over town and applied to every company that didn't take resumes (read as fast food and Lows) After a week I landed THE worst job I've ever had, but after working there for 3 months my application was finally processed at UPS and I've been there for the last 4 years getting my school paid for and making a fair amount of money. Applying widely pretty much will land you a job if you can handle having a terrible job for awhile before you find a decent one. And to me, having any job is better than having no job.

Been out of work for two years. Got my first interview lined up on Thursday. Just keep at it.
User avatar #54 to #20 - thelastamerican (09/09/2013) [-]
Move out to Louisville, you can work at Ford, UPS, or any number of similar companies. You don't need any special skills other than the ability to wait for your application to be processed.

I applied for a job at my local petstore.

I find out if I get the job tomorrow.

I've never had an official job before, but I have plenty of experience in tropical fish and such because of my family business.

I have a salory 69k dollars. What do you have?
User avatar #60 - fosforgasxiii (09/09/2013) [-]
Getting a job as a youngster is a hell of a search, the only thing you can find is a few one-day jobs. Almost all my friends with a longterm-job have that job because their mom/dad/uncle/whatever knows (or is) the boss of a company.

They're ******* weird heads full of bean paste that roam the country side around Gensokyo. They're super deformed versions of characters from the actual games. They're awful. They have the mentality of, like, 4 year olds, they're extremely self centered and stupid, they regularly rape or kill each other, people love to draw pictures of them being hurt.
I put this in my resume, never fails to get the job

Yeah, the unemployment where I live is pretty high so it's not that rare.

To me it was more difficult to find a job because of my hair (I had it down to the waist), I was working at a call center where they didn't even gave a **** about it, but I couldn't stand it anymore and quit, now I just shaved my hair out of rage because I was getting tired of my family telling me to get a haircut so I could find a job, also, when I tried asking if anyone knew about anyplace around where they where recruiting they were like " **** you lazy cunt go out and look for one yourself" (that's the other reason why I became enraged and shaved my head). Times are difficult indeed... MFW.

I got lucky when looking for job.
After finishing vocational school and military service, my aunt asked me if I'd like to have a job in the same company she's working (they were currently recruiting) so I was like "Why the **** not, let's give it a try". It's been 2½ years and I'm still on the same job, I got sort of promotion pretty early in my career because one of the previous workers resigned and I got his place.

Sometimes I think of the unemployed people and how they're struggling to find a job (since I got mine so easily) but I guess it was just a stroke of luck for me to get my job. It feels bad to see people desperately searching for work but can't find any.
Pic related, it's YFW reading this.
