What kind of job are you looking for? When I was working in hospitality and was looking for work, I never once handed in my resume. I would just walk around to places wearing black pants and a black or white shirt (usual attire for the hospitality industry) ask to speak to the manager and tell the manager that I was looking for a job and that I would be happy to do a 1-2 day unpaid trial to show them that I am a hard worker. I always got a job that way, even when they weren't looking for workers. I would never have to give them my resume or even sit through an interview. Seeing how I worked through my unpaid trial was enough for them to give me a job.<br />

Even if you are not looking for work in the hospitality industry, it is good to give it a try because at least you can have a referee/reference at the end of it when you are ready to move on.

Personality. GO GET IT. Don't let it get you down. Be POSITIVE and yourself. You can use school as a reference. Young ones can bring alot to a firm.

You just have to keep looking .... if you've never worked before ; Grocery stores, fast food , restaurants, delivery , retail , will probably be your top chances of employment ..<br />

IF you have a truck or an suv; you can search Craigslist everyday for temp help ... and one time delivery jobs ... My friend used his Explorer and would do one time delivery etc .. help unload etc ... and he averaged abut $350 per week ..TAX free !!

Ever babysat? Cleaned someones house? Have personal friends that would vouch for you? Dependability and work ethic are what an employer looks for. Chances are someone can stand up for you and say "Yeah, he/she worked here, was a good worker, dependable, etc". It works. Good luck.
