Why the fuck can't I get a job 2013-02-07 02:57:47 Reply

I mean I don't smell like shit I bathe reguarly (sure I get lazy sometimes but not to the point where it's unbearable), I dress appropriately, I go for jobs that are easy to get at the moment (I.E. Cashiering, Stock, etc), I've improved on my social skills so I can at least communicate more effeciently then in recent yars, I have experience so what's the problem? I mean I know the economy blows ass but people are getting jobs more then me!

And people say that companies do background checks on your Facebook but that's bullshit considering people who are more messed up then me get jobs and are able to keep them.

I don't get it what am I doing wrong!

Tl;dr Sure I may not be Mr.Perfect but why are other idiots getting jobs and I'm not?

Oh and quick note I'm 20 years old if you ask me how old I am.

I have a penis

I wonder what would happen if you refused to tell a potential employer what your Facebook is. I mean, they're not supposed to be able to require that.

Time to stop depending on employers and earn things yourself. The way things are going, you'll need a doctorate to man a 7/11.

You could always start your own business btw. It's a a piece of cake, just 1.) But stuff retail from HK and 2.) Sell it! I've been thinking of doing that for years..

I always thought it'd be neat to run a store out of your house like they do in parts of Asia. You know, have a window at the front with a counter and just chill in a chair.

That would be nice. The problem with most houses outside of Asia are that they're in a bit too remote locations, at least mine is... oh well, there's always the Internet (to sell things, I mean).

Go to McDonalds. Be a cashier. Watch how many fatties are asking you for a big mac and try not to laugh.

But seriously though. Just keep sending job applications.

I'm 16 and everyone around me is getting part time jobs and I really don't want to bother.

Even worse is that for school we have to do one week of work experience and its such fucking bullshit I honestly can't be fucked

if I ever have to get a cashier job it would be cool to get one at a video game store or something

Do you have any past working experience? Who are you putting down for references? are you clean shaven, articulate, and have a respectable haircut? what special skillsets do you have? Are you applying anywhere where you have friends already in? can they vouche for you?

FIrst off, as you pointed out, the economy is fucked.

Secondly, you are young, employers want someone who is desperate to get a job, to pay the bills. They want someone who they can crush and abuse and they know that the employee can't afford to walk. Most employers don't take on their legal responsibilities, they will put you in illegal working conditions, not pay you your due wage, "forget" to give you your break and so on and so forth. As a young chappie, you are more likely to walk.

Thirdly, do you have much experience? Places wont employ you unless you do. How do you get experience if nowhere will employ you? Well, my friend, I am glad you asked...

Fourthly, it's who you know. Your first few jobs you will get because you know a boss in the factory or shop. In fact, job advertisements are usually for show, usually a company has picked who they want and wish to make the process seem legal.

Finally, you need to make them believe that their shitty company or the State (if it be a government job) is your heart and soul. Literally. Unless you want to spend your life working for them, they don't want you. And yes, there are sad fuckers out there who will tow every line for minimum wage.

My boss gets minimum wage too. She routinely hauls my ass for such things as not smiling (it nearly led to a disciplinary, keep in mind that I suffer from Clinical Depression) and speaking ill of an area manager in my private time (she actually told then guy what I said word for word).

Have fun!

My local KFC - all of the people who work there who aren't at school or college have degrees. Often 1st class as well. Accountants, lawyers, or they would be, if the economy was worth it.

Why don't you search on internet? My mother has no job for now and she searchs job in the internet, or just go around the city and find some place where they will need help.

It's probably because you don't know the difference between ''then'' and ''than''. Sort your grammar, good sir.

First of all, learn how to speak... You did mistake in some words, theres an diffenence between 'then' and 'than', sir. (Most fancy word today: Sir)

Make sure you know someone that can hook you up. That will give you a significant lift and that would also be true for people who've never had a previous job in their lives. It helps to understand how many resumes most employers get, especially big ones like McDonald's, KFC, Subway, etc.--so they only have so many vacancies to fill, even though I'm sure you're qualified for every job you've aimed for. One day, if you keep sending resumes, you may get lucky enough to get a call back, get an interview and get hired, but you really should seek out a hook up if you don't have forever to wait. If you haven't done so already, make sure you post a Facebook status saying that you're looking for a job and ask if there's anything anyone can do to help--even friends who you never talk to may come forward.

blame the capitalist pigs that run companies that refuse to hire people just because they're more preoccupied with the bottomline than to help the overall social status and welfare of people.

Do you know a place where somebody you know is in a high position?

That's the real way you get a good job in this world.

It's who you know, and everything is secondary.

Don't believe the American dream crap about hard work.

I thought the American dream was to work little and attain insane profits.
