Bitch, I've been in work since I was 15, and I've never had any trouble getting a job, but I know so many people who complain about this sort of thing and I thought the comic was funny. ******* .

I recently got my first proper job (the kind that pays taxes) working at a relatively fancy restaurant with no prior experience. It was actually really easy to get an interview.   
The secret to getting an interview is  To make sure your half-sister is the manager of the restaurant

This is especially bad in my town, where for some reason, the only jobs that companies are hiring for is management positions, to which they specify you must have experience with their company already to even bother applying.

Want a job? Practice your interviewing skills.    
   
Ask anyone you know in a management position to interview you. Learn what makes an employer happy and for god sakes STUDY THE COMPANY BEFORE YOU GO TO THE INTERVIEW. If you walk in already having some knowledge of the company (founders, goals, strategic values) and great employee skills (social ability, relatedness, and eager for work) it is REALLY hard for an employer to say no to you even if you do not have the experience necessary.   
  just because it's hard for them to say no, does not mean they won't    
   
protip: When you are nervous, don't say Uhhh or Umm. Instead either say "Well..." or just shut your mouth until a useful word comes out. It will make you sound MUCH more intelligent.   
   
Source: me  I give interviews all of the time for my company. Its crazy how people don't know how to talk during these things.

Easiest way to get an entry level job. Know two people who work at any place befrend them both, Get them to put in the good word for you. I say two because In case no positions are open after a few weeks. Kill one of them and tell no one

I can relate. After a full year of searching, I finally got lucky and got a job recently, and while it's not much, it's way better than unemployment.

Still, all the places that never called back or anything got really frustrating.

Except when you volunteer at a soup kitchen.

I know that volunteering will count as experience, but for people with kids, you just don't have time to waste doing work for no money.

i realise this was the case for grown-up jobs, but for a freaking coffe-maker?

To the kids getting butthurt at people telling them to volunteer: Yes, we know it's far from guaranteed to get you a job- even those of us with ample experience are struggling- but it's still a great idea and definitely worth doing cause at the very least it puts you above the other guy with zero work experience, plus it's something to talk about on a CV/in an interview, you may get a reference/recommendation out of it, or they may even employ you when a job opens up/over the busy periods. Don't be discouraged, we're all in the same boat right now and need all the work experience we can get.

The reason for this in a nutshell is pretty much the recession. Companies know that their jobs are in higher demand, so they know they can up the requirements even for low-level positions and still get plenty of qualified applicants. My best advice, besides volunteering (which is hard to find within whatever field you want to work in, plus it doesn't pay), is to make friends. I've worked to get jobs, but the best jobs I've gotten have been with a friend or relative's referral. I then work my ass off, once highered, to prove I'm qualified and my referral was valid, but I wouldn't have gotten the opportunity without the referral.

Contacts man...gotta have contacts. My own grandparents run a Barista bar on wheels. Got a few days of work with them, boom, experience. Obviously not everyone has it that easy but you really should try and take opportunities like that wherever possible.
