It's close to being the five-month aniversary of my unemployment and my Dad is threatening me with potential homelessness in the next week if I don't get a job. Besides...don't most people get jobs through an in-house referral rather than applying for work as an outsider (aka the majority of my job search)? It doesn't help that my State ID expired back in October and the longest time I worked at one place was three months (and before/after quitting that job, my hamstrings and calves were and still are not as efficient as they once were, and they also hooked me up with a now mild case of carpal tunnel).

P.S. Oh yeah, and from all the on-foot job hunting, I've gotten shin splints in my left leg

If you don't have any job environment preference, then you're better off going into dining restaurants, fast food, etc and asking the managers who work there for employment. Face-to-face is the best way to get a job, easily.

If you have lots of Facebook friends, then you can make a post asking if anyone is hiring, etc and you might get lucky. Social networking is key.

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

And you expect me to form this project with nothing but an acoustic tuned to C# Standard?

P.S. Looking to buy some heavier gauge strings when I get work so I can tune down to C Standard. Just makes sense to me to start from the beginning of the octave rather than two whole steps above it. Besides...not a lot of guitar players with jersey finger so I might as well pave my own path learning guitar and start off with whatever tuning I want.

Going door to door for food and beverage jobs is sometimes the only way to get work. Especially in bars/pubs. Even just going in and asking the staff to work for an hour pro bono to show them what you can offer is also a good tactic.

Not true

You just get a "Please email us your CV/check online for vacancies" a solid 90% of the time.

You must be from the 1950s too, baby boomer scum.

I assure you it is. Most pubs just keep a folder for resume's man. What'dya think they get their HR department or recruitment agency to comb through the resume's? lol.

If you're not too bothered about what type of job it is, try to make your CV as broad as possible. Then upload it to as many job sites as you can. But I wouldn't rule out posting on Facebook and trying to hand out CVs in person too. It goes without saying, the more bases you cover, the more likely you are to land a job. Good luck!

Nice punctuation.

If you have a lot of Facebook friends, someone will likely know of a workplace that is hiring. But don't expect them to "get you in", even if they promise they can. You're unlucky you didn't get some Christmas temp work, it's going to be harder this side of Christmas. Also don't be averse to call centres, they're usually always hiring and it sounds like you just need anything to get going.

Also ask your dad to ask his mates if they know of any vacancies. It will help him feel more involved and hopefully less likely that he will carry on with any "just give your CV out, that's what I did" rhetoric.

Aaaaand get someone to look over your CV. Make sure you put why you left the last job and what you've been doing whilst you are unemployed.
