Still NO Job!!
I think the thing holding me back is my experience, but ffs I'm 17, I haven't got any experience!
I've got good qualifications and NO ONE will give me a chance.
My mum doesn't pay for me, and as I'm not old enough to claim jobseekers I have to live on basically nothing. Sam gets £100 every two weeks, but it isnt enough for both of us.
I get up early to take CVs everywhere, I apply for about 2 jobs a day and now I'm really starting to think I'm never going to get one!
Rant Over.
If anyone can think of anywhere else I can apply for - don't hesistate to post a comment!
