    Been looking for the good part of a year myself Moved down from Edinburgh to Liverpool and been looking here. I've resigned to looking for anything now, times are getting desperate! I think my problem is, im 22 now, and i have no work experience to write down (although i can always lie and say i worked for my dad though who's a self employed courier)

    I left high school and went to college for 2 years and got an NC in Electronics Engineering, went to do the HNC but never got the final award because i failed a couple of units, but i passed everything else. The other half of the course was Music Technology so i've got a shitload of units in sound recording/multi-track mixing/microphones etc etc

    Since leaving college ive more or less done nothing for 1-2 yrs, just bumming about and making music, making money myself doing odd bits and bobs and buying/selling stuff.

    I was originally looking for any jobs in recording studios/theatres/tv studios/radio stations etc etc, willing to do more or less anything to get my foot in the door, but these kinda jobs seem to be quite few and far between. I managed to get an interview for Tapes Assistant for Hollyoaks at Mersey TV, but never got the job in the end (still gutted lol )

    I've applied for other random jobs aswell, working with computers etc but all i've been getting is rejection letters. The latest rejection was from a bloody DIY store for a sales assistant !

    Im worried the lack of any real work experience is hindering my chances, and also, im starting to wonder if down here they have no idea what my qualifications mean! ie, in Scotland the equivalent of GCSE's are Standard Grades, and A levels are Highers.

    Im looking for anything now, today i reluctantly called places like Wilkinsons and Poundland *hangs head in shame* lol

    There's a couple jobs at John Moores Uni im going to apply for aswell though

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Oh yeah, one more thing (thats enough of my life story for now lol)

    I've got an application sitting here for John Lewis's and there's a few questions i could do with some pointers on...gonna need to blag my way thru all of them lol

    1)What appeals to you about working with us?
    2)When was the last time you received great customer service, and why was it memorable?
    3)Tell us about an experience or achievement that you are proud of

    Okay, i'll shut up now

    i know someone who works in poundland, some people think they should be ashmed but i think the pay is quite good compared to stores who are much higher in class should we say. Just because they are a cheap shop doesent mean they dont pay well.

    For instance round here a job at sainsburys theyd pay you around 4.90 - 5.20 depending according to recent research, now if you went to aldi 2 miles from sainsburys you could earn 7 an hr for sitting on a till. Surprises me. But think whos better off when you get your wage packet :-)

    i looked up [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] for you according to your post.

    Thanks for the links Taking a look through them now.

    The Poundland job is part time and only pays minimum wage though. I noticed Aldi payed really good aswell, i forgot about them, will need to check them out.

    Other reason im more desperate now is that i had my Jobseekers allowance stopped completely because i never attended a course they wanted me to go on...about how to write a cv, and send you on "outdoor team activities" and how to search for a job....and had me doing tests which reminded me of stuff i done when i was about 12..lol..fill in missing words in paragraphs etc...i guess they just assume if you havn't got a job in 6 months you must be thick as sh-t lol

    Thanks again, off to look through these sites.

    Thanks alot for that, much appreciated. Security one and the promotion staff one sounds not bad, think i'll give them a phone/email. Thing i've found with previous security jobs i've looked at, they all wanted experience and a 10 yr checkable work history, so that one seems to fit the bill a bit more. Cant believe lidl and aldi pay so much aswell lol

    Im off to check the liverpooljobs site now.

    Thanks again

    I'm a graduate looking for a job at the minute. I've a BSc Mathematics 2:2 from Exeter. I've applied to AWE but havent heard anything yet. I'm also about to apply to EDS and i'm also applying to customer systems Plc but i dont think i'll get a job there tbh. Finding graduate jobs is harder than you'd think. Nearly everywhere asks for a 2:1 or a 1st

    I'm looking for research and defence jobs mainly (hence AWE, also going to apply to BAE when their applications open again) Preferably something that i can get into engineering with so i'd have a maths degree and engineering qualifications.
    I've also recently been looking at the IT consultancy jobs that i've found posted on here and found them quite interesting, especially some of the salaries (aka £36k + car for customer systems)

    I have a CV and a generic covering letter which i adapt for each job

    Just typing up a covering letter and i have to email it to the company. When sending it via post you can sign the letter and print your name but when emailing it is it better to just type your name or actually scan in your signature?

    hi there,

    myself and the wife currently live in cheshire but are looking to buy a house on the isle of seil in scotland, oban is the nearest major-ish town so we have been looking for jobs in that area but so far we have found nothing suitable.
    we look at the job centre website every day but dont know where else to look.
    help please !!!!.
    my wife is currently self employed and works as a qualified childminder from home and although she enjoys doing this she would be willing to do other jobs related to childcare for example classroom assistant etc.
    i currently work as a tradeplate driver (delivering and collecting cars to all over the uk) ideally i would love to continue doing this if i could find a company to work for, however i also have a lot of experience in the warehouse/transport industry and hold current counterbalance and reach forklift truck licences and also hold a psv/pcv licence so i can drive buses and coaches,hopefully somebody can point out a few places to look for work.

    thanks for taking the time to look..
