applying for jobs

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I have decided that i have had enough of being unemployed and that its time for me to get a job.*

I havent worked apart from my summer job caring for children with special needs since i graduated as i went travelling for three months and then took a month and a half off to rest, relax and enjoy myself before starting to find work.

So, today I am applying for some part time jobs, finally enrolling on a magazine journalism course i want to do and sending off some cv's for work experience in the media.

its so daunting, i really have no idea where to start with all this!

so, i'm hoping you guys will send me some vibes and tips for job hunting!

* Fwan and Sar, don't worry, i'll still be on msn all day! i'll try to get an office job especially, mwahahaha!

Sending "Find an awesome job" vibes! Try checking out the jobs posted on craigslist.org for your area (they are worldwide) Does monster.com have a UK equivalent?

Good luck - my sister is back to the job hunt after a little xmas break (she is way too picky) she has an interview near Westminster on Friday so fingers crossed for both of you!

I am not too sure she said 'its too hard to explain' (worrying I know)

Her last job was on the perfume counter at Allders, before that at Ladbrokes, before that she was a runner at a TV show and before that she was a manager at Icelands and before that she was a cashier at Boots so it could be anything! Oh and somewhere in there she worked for Natwest doing something with foreign money!

Oooh, you're going to get a real job!

Good luck with the hunt!! If you need a hand with anything - CV, CV design, covering letters, pleas for experience letters, just give me a shout!! I'll be more than happy to help you!!

It's cool that you'll be on MSN still, but I might not be on much, except dead early in the morning My studio won't have a connection

She got the job - she is working as an assistant to the producer on some unheard of cable TV show thats not even important enough to name I love my sister's emails - they never make any sense!

Can I have some of these vibes too please? I hate my job, I want to do something exciting until mark graduates and we move!! nothing ever comes up though!
Anyone got any ideas on a job which pays well and I would actually want to get out of bed for? Also doesnt require a degree as I dont have one yet...
Nicky good luck finding a job, I think if things get much worse I might start charging mark for being my boyfriend

I think all your vibes paid off!

I've got work experience starting monday. Have also just started my journalism course and some friends and I (including our very own Sar!) have started up an online webzine to boost up our cv's.

Might also be getting an article published in the 2004 webzine of the year.

Very excited about work, have bought a weeks worth of outfits because i figured if i look good i'll feel good and seem more confident. Going to be hard as i'm crippilingly shy when it comes to people I don't know.

Big hug and thanks to Sar for helping me with my cv!
