does anyone have any good ideas, im really struggling to get a job and would consider many things right now.
im a student, cant do that
just because you've just had a 5K pay rise there's no need to lure Jack into the sordid world of benefits!
a slow one mind.
youll have to stump up more than that
i sent an email to a place yesterday and they havent replied, and my friend said he would try to get a job at his work, but hasnt text me back for a week, and im thoroughly pissed off, and need money for benicassim, and reading and i need to pay off my overdraft :(
not much anyway
and given i have yet to fully pay for the ticket/flights etc. i still need money. i want to cry
i thought i could get a job in a pub, but my old one has new managers, ive applied for another 2, both that said they wanted people and theyve not got back to me, i emailed a place yesterday and not reply and generally i suck.
keep at it. it might take a while but don't lose heart.
selling stuff on ebay is really the only way.i havent had to do this yet and i hopefully never will
i dont want to sell stuff, and i dont really have that much thats really worth anything, beyond records and stuff but i wouldnt get much for those really
keep at it.you will find something eventually
i hope so. im really starting to worry now!
more mnoey than sense!

You'll be rolling in it.
Everyone likes a roll.
you rob a bank
that's what I'm trying to arrange at the moment but they never get back to me. I'm just gonna storm into the office on monday and force feed them my CV.
'Recruitment Consultancy' other than the relative handful of sharp types who places executives in well paid positions is the last reserve of the otherwise unemployable.
In short, if they weren't working for Adecco/Manpower et al, they would be traipsing around Adecco/Manpower at al
Ring them/email them and visit them in person every single day....it's a war of attrition!

and sell them to your neighbours.

It's a mixed bag really.
that one. i forget im wearing it sometimes and then wonder why people are looking at me funny.
first class stamps now cost 36p!! 36!!!!!! it's ridiculous!!! the prices go up so often, they just have "1st" written on them now, instead of the price.
My idea is that you buy LOADS of stamps. Wait for the price to go up, then sell them. I'm telling you, it's a sure way to get inflation-beating capital growth.
who needs summer work, you might be interested in these two low-effort beauties that i sourced from our local job centre today
1) housekeeper at holiday inn...duties will include dusting, polishing, turning beds
2)childrens costume character actor.
and i quote 'you will be dressing up in costumes such as princesses, fairies, super heros and pirates to attend childrens parties. you will need to act as the character and interact with the children such as high fiving and having photos taken'
let me know what one you fancy and ill go for the other.
who the fuck needs a decent summer wage in a shitty office when you can be sewing the seeds of future cripling anxieties for literally hundreds of children
...do your elephant impression. Sure fire hit.
my woody allen. kids love that shit.
Kids love abit of Allen.
the housekeeper one doesnt seem to bad, i could do that. dunno how i feel about dressing up as buzz lightyear though.
im gonna go to the job centre by the doctors tomorrow
i think im just gonna get some warehouse work for the summer. found somewhere that is six quid an hour just for like packing, unloading etc etc. i dont want to think or talk to the public, and i can pretend im an arthur seaton working class type with my sleves rolled up and my collar to attention. (i wont be like billy joel. definatly not billy joel)
do you want to though?
ive got to go to the agency to register for it tues, come along.
I've dropped off 30 odd CVs /app forms in the past 2 weeks, and nothing back. Plus, the 6 weeks work I did have arranged (to the tune of £1,500) has gone down the sinkhole this afternoon. I am feeling thoroughly gutted right now. Zonino is going to be a write off.
sucks doesnt it. i really need to earn money but cant
