If you were 25 and you never had a job, would you stay up all night looking for a job?

  • Hmm... What kind of job can a woman with no experience get in the middle of the night...
    Sorry, I can't imagine being 25 and never having a job. Are you asking for yourself?

  • If I was 25 and had never had a job, I'd be worried if I'd ever be able to find one. It doesn't look good if you're in your 20s and have no job experience. Unless you were a SAHM, and I'd be sure to put that down on my applications. Stay up all night? Why? If I needed a job NOW, yes. If I had time to look, no.

  • I think getting some sleep so I could type a really good cover letter and fill out any online applications without a whole lot of mistakes would be foremost in my mind. Anyway over a holiday weekend chances are those resumes will be there till after the Laor Day weekend.

  • I take it you mean stay up all night looking for a job online. If you're 25 and never had a job, you'll have a hard battle ahead of you. Might want to start with temp agencies or places that normally hire high school kids just to get some experience under your belt. Talk to a career councelor. I'm hoping you didn't have a job thus far because you were in college. That won't look so bad on a resume or job app.
