I stole a pair of my friend's mother's panties. They were clean so it was rather dissapointing when I took a wiff.

Get friendly with owners of small businesses. That's how I got the most kickass job ever. The owners of the local record store (by the way, I live in an incredibly small town) needed an extra pair of hands and actually asked me to work there. I didn't have to apply or anything.

ususal things like shopping centres or fast food restaurants. important is to give them a nice job application and a maintenance history with a picture of you.

Word of warning, in Britain, it's REALLY hard to get a job right up until you're at least 20. If you get a job, you'd sure as hell better keep it...

Tesco are always looking to take people on, so I'd go there, get an application and fill it in on the day. You'll hopefully be working there within a week =]
#10
Ask your parents if they can put in a good word for you - I work holidays in the office my mum used to work at.
#11
Tesco don't tak on untill after you GCSE's have come through though so bear that in mind...

i've taken my cv to loads of places last week and filled in loads of application forms for places like pizza hut and asda.

the easiest thing to do would be go into town and walk into every shop asking whether they've got vacancies.

no it's not...

almost every kid from 15 upwards in my local small town has a job. there are always plenty of small business, shops and restaurants looking for extra staff. just ask about and persevere. and yeah, tesco or asda could be a good bet.
#13
Best tip I can give you is to print off as many CVs as you can and mail them to the personnel department or manager of EVERY place you can think of. Once you have a job, THEN you can start looking for one, if you know what I mean. Get the money coming in first before you think of looking for something you want to do.

P.S. Guitar shops are the worst places to look for jobs. The applicant lists are always huge, and it's really more a "who you know" kind of business.

Hmm, I've been getting replies, but I don't think I interview well... I'm not good enough at lying

Comet said no, morrisons said no...gays


I'm applying to BHS (OMG) and LIDL at the moment. (I'd love to work at lidl...)

our school has a bulleting board for jobs, maybe your school has one?

Also, parishes have bulletins for jobs as well, internet, newspaper. Walk around town and you'll see lots of "Help Wanted" signs.

I'd disagree with that, somewhat, I'm 18 and more or less everyone in my year has a job of some description. Most did at 17, to be honest.

Oh, and you'll come out disappointed if, at this early stage, you're going for a job in a music store. Trust me, I've been there, and they are absolutely ruthless in terms of the stuff you need to know.

I've had a job pretty much solidly since I was 13... It's really not hard at all.

It's a good idea to write specific CV's for each job you go for, there's no point in writing a CV saying you've got loads of retail experience if you're going for a bar job, and vice versa...

For me, Mcdonalds, JJB Sports, Claire's Accessories, a local fruit store, Morrisons, Dunelm, Wilkinsons and Woolworths have all said no.

Tesco, tesco, tesco. Also, stock control is the way to go. Checkouts is boring as hell.

It is a bit of an overglorified department name, actually. It should be called something more along the lines of 'Scan stuff, find stuff' or 'Money for Nothing'.

best thing to do is to hand out your cv to everyone. somebody will call
try coffee shops
or market research if you really need the money (not advisable)

I applied to Asda last year, after not hearing anything after a couple of weeks I rang up to check they had recieved it and they said they'd be in touch...

I'm still waiting.

They didn't even have the courtesy to ring me back and say I was sh*t or anything.

I haven't really been arsed to get a job since then.
#31
Being a waiter at a restaurant is probably your safest bet. For most of them, you don't even need a CV - they have application forms.
I worked in a bar over the summer after my GCSE's. It was a crap job, and the pay was lousy (you're guaranteed to get ripped off in terms of wages wherever you go - the minimum wage is different for under-18's, so the owners rip off the kids just because they can), but I got a fair amount saved up that I've been spending ever since (I got fired a couple of months after the school year started again )

Just ask mates if they have any vacancies at work and tell them to put a good word in for you.

Connexions isnt designed for part time 16 year olds work. I tried and thats pretty much what they said.

People have advised me to go to a job centre. Ill go hunting for a job during my exams and start when theyre finished.

The only part time job your likely to get at 16 is a blow job. If your like me you'll end up with neither
I've tried gettin part time jobs, but it seems that potwashing is the only option. I go away to school so it's hard to get jobs for the holidays
