    Job application advice?

    I went job hunting today around my local shopping mall (Party City, Foot Action, AMC, Barnes & Noble, K mart, Sprint, Modells, Gamestop, etc) and as I filled out my 6th application I realized how low my chances are :/

    I have no previous job experience because I just wanted to get school over with, so I focused all of my attention on school.

    And I couldn't even list 3 references.


    Any advice?

    Create a resume and just put a whole bunch of shit on it with big words, my friend got a job like that without any experience at Mc Donalds and he just graduated High School.

    Don't just be another piece of paper. Introduce yourself to the manager.

    Exactly what disturbed said.

    Don't be the generic "Oh here's my resume could you take a look at it and consider hiring me" approach.
    Be yourself, and be confident. I got my job @ Tim hortons :P

    Do what I did, keep bothering them until they put a metting with the Hiring manager, if you bother them enough they will know you want the job.
    As in, call them

    No one really expects you to have references at a starting job.

    Just fill it as truthfully as possible.

    Basically, a job wants: a person who is willing to want the job, also a high school diploma will increase your chance a few aswell.
