money problem making me unhappy

Postby hellogoodbye » Thu Jun 18, 2009 12:25 am

hi, i'm a young student and i'm struggling to find a part time job. It seems everyone has money bar me! most of my friends are very spoiled and it frustrates me watching them get money at thier feet for nothing!

I'd murder for a job and i know my parents cant afford to spoil me and i think they'd rather me make my own money. But i'm finding it really hard, ive handed out tons of cvs and looked all over for some work and i cant find anything.

As sad as it sounds its getting me dead upset, cause its not nice not being able to have the comfort of having a little money in your pocket sometimes.

Needed to get that off my chest anyway!

Have you been in touch with your local job centre, you can view them online too and find jobs available. I'm sure a supermarket would take you on part time as well.

and try temping agencies too

also get someone to have a llok at your CV there maybe something that is putting people off - make sure it's simple and limit it to one page. Bold heading and short info in bullet form works quite well as you can skim read.

I am sure the job centre can give you some advice on this

Places to try if you haven't already: local garden centres, supermarkets, cafes, local shops, fast food outlets, leisure centre

I've found that just handing out CVs in the hope the company/shop/whatever gets in touch isn't particularly effective to be honest. I think it's better to actually look for job vacancies, then fill in the application form. I bet a lot of places get tonnes of generic CVs, whereas if you fill in specific job applications you know there is a job vacancy for a start, you can address the questions they want answering and they're more likely to actually look at it.

You don't say how old you are so I'm not sure if you're a school student or uni student .. if you're over 18, bookies are always recruiting as the staff turnover is quite high. It's also quite good pay for a student - a friend of mine paid her way through uni by working at a bookies, especially during the summer when they can give you quite a bit of overtime.
