    yeah I hope he gets something, It's hard out there for the young 'uns, my lad is after a part-time job whilst he's studying at 6th form, he's applied every where, he tried Sainsburys, you can only do it online, any one seen the application form,wtf ! he only wants to stack shelves not run the bloody company :grumpy smilie:

    yeh , i agree !!

    lol @ strike!

    i actually didn't even see the 'just joking' till i read mmoo's post

    Who thought job hunting was going to be easy? It's better that its a harder process so people work hard and appreciate that they have an income. I think the majority of my year went out and handed out CV till they got a job, and your not going to get a job immediatley. Just wait and have patience but continue to hand out your CV. And lots of students will be going Uni meaning vacant positions.

    My Son took hours to fill this application form in. Like you say it is only to stack shelves.
    I am glad I am not in their situation.

    If he is determined enough, he will get something.

    All mine never found CV's in shops much use, no response.

    Try printing general info, gardening duties, shifting stuff with mobile contact. Might have more luck. Once word gets around, he will be in demand. Always shortage of garden help needed.

    My son has just been laid off.........4 days after his 21st birthday....bad times

    Hope he gets something soon OP - my daughter's been trying to find part time work after schoo/weekends while going back to school for 6th year. Went for her first ever interview at the Ceramic Experience and they didn't even have the decency to get back in touch to say she was unsuccessful. Not even a phone call never mind a letter. Makes me so mad as its so disheartening for the younger ones today to try and get a job as it is, never mind a little part time one.

    Hope for my Son then. lol

    Tell him to try something more ingenious...leaving a cv is useless they get shoved on a pile and ignored.
    I dont know tell him to wrap it round a packet of bikkies and take it in personally, usuing it as a good excuse to stop and chat

    Haha i work there to wich makes it worse

    read ads in local papers for gardening /building or whatever companies - tell him to give them a ring to see if any work available - phone numbers are there - good luck to him and others looking

    (anyone see the story of fabric shop in Selby - 2 full time vacancies £9 an hour - couldnt get staff!!)

    i wish i owe a company and i will employ all those who really,really want to work, like your son. I phoned NCP about parking the other day and the guy knew nothing.!!!!
    can i park and repark for free at NCP ...don't know
    is there a discount for hotel users...don't know
    Now that's rubbish service... i never got any answers in the end!!!.

    a) No.
    b) Depends on the arrangement between the Hotel & National Car Parks; ask the Hotel.

    Sounds like a method to promote the shop in a local paper (without paying for the advertisement) & gain more customers looking for bargains in a closing down sale that isn't going to happen as there will then be an influx of people wanting the job(s) mentioned that could not be filled previously.

    BFN,
