    O.k. So I Found A Job But.......

    I finally found a job but it is just a job to get me by until I find one in my field of study. The pay is barely above minimum wage, but it's a job. It's a fairly easy no-brainier job that is nasty at times, but it's a job. The benefits are good. They do have an I.T. department...

    I'm 22 and I've never had a legitimate job.

    I've applied endlessly and gone to so many interviews, but I just get rejected all the time. I know I interview terribly, but I'm great with customers and have a lot of skill, why can't someone just cut me a break.
