I have been putting in applications for months. Every time I get the same answer, "We're looking for someone more qualified." And those fast food places everyone keeps telling to apply at(which I have) say stuff like, "We already hired someone."
I haven't even made it to an interview! So that is not the problem. What the problem is, I cant make myself look worthy of hiring on paper without lying. And that is a no go.
I understand places wanting to hire people who know how to do the job and have a good record of employers. But if nobody will hire me, just how am I supposed to get a job?
I am 20 years old. No paid experience in anything. I have done volunteer work, but doing that does not get bills paid. I have seen stuff like, "Volunteer work does not count" on applications. Because I didn't get paid.
I volunteered at a Christian Preschool as a teen and the animal shelter. Animals and children are what I love working with. I cant do an in home daycare because I lived in a two bedroom trailer with 4 other people.(Not including myself.) I want out, and I AM trying!!
I live in a small town. I want more than anything to move so I can have a better chance at finding work. But moving requires money. And money I do not have.
I refuse to go on any form of PA. I have tried staffing agencies and never got anywhere with them!
This is a vent. I am in the correct group for venting so don't bash me for complaining. I don't do it often.
Feel free to give me helpful advice! Or share stories of similar experiences.
If this happened to you, How did you get out of this hell hole? Did it take years? Did you just give up and become a SAHM?
