It seems like no matter what I do or how hard I try I can’t get a job. I’m a 20-year-old male living in NC. The last job I had was about a year ago and it was the first job I had ever had. I worked retail from 2014 to 2015. Long story short, I quit that job because the management was going to shit.

While I’m living with my parents and going to college, I feel like a fucking loser because I don’t have any income. I’m tired of my folks giving me gas money and the like, even if I did house work for it. I want to earn my own money again through a real job. I’ve been applying to jobs left and right and even walking into stores, looking sharp, with resume in hand. I have no criminal record, I was never late to my old job, I left on my own terms (gave my 2 weeks), and even my pervious co-workers would put in a good word for me. I even have lots of volunteer work in various areas as well. I don’t think I’m perfection or some amazing worker that anyone would be privileged to have working for them and I’m sure there are many others like me but goddamn I can’t catch a break.

What do I do /adv/? The constant applying and rejection is starting to get to me. Any help or advise is much appreciated.

>TL;DR: What can I do to get a job?

im having the same problem as you are. i am also 20 years old living with my mom. she also give me money cuz she feel bad for me and i always tell her not to give me any and use it on herself anyway my advise to you my friend is the same advise my friend told me. LIE just lie in your resume. lie in your interviews and lie until you get what you want. the reason is because most people these days want people with experience. they dont wanna train anybody cuz it waste there time but either way they gonna have to show you how its done.the only way for you to get experience is to get a job and the only way to get a job in this era is too have experience. once you get the job, learn everything about it and if you get fired then lie to the next job then the next and so on cuz its not really about the job, its all about experience hope my advise help you cuz i know it helps me a lot. i live in nyc and getting a job here is pretty challenging

I'm in a similar position too and live in NC as well. I've been working with my dad until I find a job which has been for the past year or so now. Do you live in bumfuck nowhere with just corn and tobacco fields all around? I do, and it's so fucking hard to find a job around here. It doesn't help that half the population appears to be niggas that would rather hire fellow niggas than hire a white boy. Some places I don't even see one white person employed.

That all kinds of shitty Anon. I live in Wilmington, so I'm here with retarded college kids and old, rich Northerners who moved down South to make our lives hell. Good deal of nigs in my area but your more likely to see super liberal yuppies running around than anything. It's hard to get a job here due to the colleges and vacationers in the area. Once a job is posted its already gone.

Show me that resume and cover letter (omit personal info) and I'll give you feedback on what you are doing right/wrong. Also give me some info on the jobs you are applying to.

This is pretty awful to navigate through. On the surface it looks like you put no effort into it. For example you need to organize your work experience to be easier to read.

First and foremost in bold or in a bigger size will be the name of the work place and not the date you worked there. Bullet points for your job duties makes it easier for them to read.

Don't mean to alarm you but you made a lot of mistakes here.

I tried, didn't get a lot of help with it and reading/looking at examples online didn't help me much either. I'll do what you said though, hope it will make it look better.
