I worked as a mosque-announcer back in the days. Didn't pay much, though.

If you're 16 try something simple, like mcdonalds, walmart or governor of alaska.

i'm in the same situation man. I'm 17, applied at like 5 or 6 places and haven't heard anything yet. Keep looking for signs, and don't be outrageously picky.

Go to college, concentrate on that.

Trust me, I left school at 16. A yr and a half later, and I'm still unemployed.

True, a lot of places wait for applicants to call back and check in on the application process. Wouldn't you only want to hire people that seemed to care a little bit about work?

20 isn't enough. Try 50. That's what it took my mate to get his first job.

Use a job search site as well? They're brilliant

It was the same for me about a year ago. I turned in about the same number of applications, and only got 1 call back, and then a few months later got calls from other places too. The thing is, every store that called me back were grocery stores, so my advice to you would be to apply at grocery stores. Although it might suck, stay there for a while, and always be positive about it, and after a while, you'll be able to get a good reference from your manager so you'll be able to move on to a better job.

this. also, if you have any skills (for instance, programming), then emphasize these by all means. but only if you're good at it. if you suck, they'll be able to tell right away. but if you have some kind of qualification, its always a plus. (for instance, I'm a native english AND german speaker, I use this to get students to teach english to)

I'm 16 and working my first job. It's food. It sucks ass. It's above minimum wage by like a dollar, but it still sucks ass.

I won't be there for much longer though, I have to leave because my family is likely gonna be moving too far away for me to drive there daily. Yay!
