Internships, volunteer, hold a position in a club,

You gotta be proactive while you're still in school. Everyone has a degree, you gotta show why you've got what they don't.

All around my town, I work my ass off, driving around or riding my bike looking for a 			*******		 job. With the rare call of getting an interview, if any at all, all I ever get is "We need someone more qualified."   
   
I'm 19. I've only ever had one job. Working at a FootLocker. I ended up losing that job due to me getting an assistant manager in trouble for not doing her job. At ALL!   
   
She would literally sit in the back and sleep while I did all the work. Then her buddy who was also an assistant manager told me that I did not have work the next day, and this is a guy I trusted. He then proceeds to call me the next day, day I apparently did not work, and said "Dude, where are you? DM is here."    
   
I was pissed. Also, DM is District Manager. The next week I was stock for work, every day I was working and I was happy for that. Then, all my time disappears and my Manager tells me "After that DM thing, we can't keep you on the work list. We'll call you when we need you."    
   
I was so pissed that I just quit right there. The bitch that I got fired even tried to put a claim on me for some sexual 			****		. I don't know if that's what is keeping me from getting a job now, or not. All I know is that now a days, that's all I hear. "You need more experience."

While I was looking for a job I actually had a few places just straight up kick me out without even formally applying because I didn't have any experience.    
I applied to a Verizon customer service job and they wanted to hire me so badly because I did excellent on their little questionnaire thing, but the corporation demanded at least six months experience so she begged me to come back once I had that.    
   
My stepmother kicked me out of the house for eight hours a day, six days a week all the blazing goddamn summer. I was not allowed to be home, or even come home for lunch, unless I'd been out job searching for eight hours. I was not allowed to job search online. Do you realize how much gas eight hours of driving a day costs? I had to pay for that 			****		.    
   
You know where I 			*******		 found my current job? Online, on my phone, while sitting in a parking lot sweating to death.

In college I roomed with the same guy all four years...we were both majoring in the same thing and we got along pretty well.

Freshman year of college, he worked during the summer (I went home to chill with my parents)
Sophomore year of college, he worked in the computer labs (I repeated a class I'd failed)
Junior year of college, he moved up to a sweet 'Help Desk' job and that summer he had a cool internship. I stayed on campus and played World of Warcraft and hit the level cap
Senior year of college, he founded a club related to our major and kept doing his part-time work. He even entered some dumb contests and would go to on campus lectures and junk outside of class. I did Ultimate Frisbee and drank every Thursday night.

When we graduated, we both had the same degree. Our GPAs were almost the same too. But when we went to the job fair, everyone he talked to, offered him a job. He had job offers before he graduated. Everyone I talked to said, 'Sorry, we're looking for someone with experience!'. It was crap, nobody would hire, so I couldn't get experience. And I couldn't get experience because nobody would hire me. We're even the same race and gender, so I couldn't explain it. Why would anyone want to hire him over me? We had the same degree and almost identical GPAs. Just because he did all this extra stuff and demonstrated his abilities and drive....that doesn't make him a better person or anything. Anyone can waste their summers.

Oh boy, another round of "16 year olds bitching about how they can't get a job because they're too good for McDonalds or WalMart."

You're missing the point, beyond that, looking for a "real job" the issue is "relevant" experience. Experience in fast food is only good for so much. People want to hire people who they know are capable of doing the work they want them to.

Every job I've ever applied to, I never even get a call for an interview. Or if I do get a call (which is rare for me) it's "Oh, well we need someone with more experience/someone who's more qualified"

I applied for a job that's specifically for cleaning in a store that's literally right around the corner from me.
I do feel like I'd be good for it, because I have had previous experience in general cleaning when on a job - plus there is very little chance I'd be late seeing as I live right around the corner.
It's been about 5 days though, and I'm feeling less confident about it with each day that passes.

All these people complaining about not having jobs.

I donno. I've been working since I was 13. I started out with family businesses; I've never really had a problem getting a job, and I live in NYC, one of the worst job markets this side of the atlantic.

I almost want to be a dick and say nearly anyone who doesn't have a job, doesn't really want one, or doesn't put enough effort into finding one; or has some lame excuse as to why they have yet to get one.

Generally speaking, you should do internships before you get jobs, or work in some sort of family business. That is usually how things go; make connections, or something of the like.

I'm only nineteen, and I've worked seven jobs so far. (eight; if you include when I oddjobbed as a comedian during the six months I went to college)

Anyway; my point is, if you actually care enough to do so, it is possible to find a job.

I got my first job when I was 16. I didn't even have to call them after turning in my application, they called me a few days afterwards to ask me to come in for an interview, and then started me out at 10 cents above minimum wage.

I'm unemployed and was looking for a position recently. I came across one, a graduate design engineer position. Under experience, they required 3 years experience for a graduate position! Now, forgetting about modesty and ego, I have a masters degree in mechanical and manufacturing engineering which is pretty damn hard to work towards!

I think some companies just want to be dicks. To all the people who are saying it's easy to get a job, I don't think you know how easy it is, how competitive it can be when you have 30 people interviewing for the same position in a horrible job market.

To all the people who decline to work in menial jobs, don't be so full of pride. Get experience at those levels first before you get something better. Just because you're in what you might consider a sucky job, does not mean that you cannot shop arond for another job.

Yeah, this is becoming true even for **** jobs. I applied to the sprouts down the street to be a cashier, and they said they wanted two years experience before they'd hire. Okay, well I'll try something even more basic: dishwashing. This was a little better, they only wanted one year experience. **** this job market.

"Part-time busser wanted. Minimum wage. 20 hours a week mon-thur. 3 years experience required"
"Host. Must be friendly. Minimum 2 years in a restaurant environment. Bring resume to _______"
"Cashier wanted part time for overnight gas station. 1 year experience."

**** my town... i hate the fact that ENTRY LEVEL, minimum wage, part time positions require multiple years experience to do.
