    I bet Nando’s didn’t want to hire me because I have no job experience / too young (but I’m turning 17 this month). But everyone has to start somewhere, right? The worst part is, I wasn’t contacted. It’s fine that you don’t want to hire me, but at least have the courtesy to notify this poor kid so that she doesn’t have to be clueless for 2 weeks?

    Mood : Angry
    • Don’t give up or become disheartened @flameaura, I’m sure you will find the right job for you, employers really should contact you about things when you apply, do your best to keep searching and a great opportunity will come your way, believe in yourself, I’m always here if you need to chat or vent, feel free to inbox me anytime, stay strong, you are never alone :) (hugs)

    • You have every right to be angry. I wish you all the best for your future job interviews. Considering that you compete with people who are a lot older than you is admirable. Hope the next one goes better than this. Good luck!
      Make us proud.

    • @flameaura Nowdays people are very hypocrit when it comes to hire. They request experience when you’re just staring. My advice is just be patience and if you can get experience an activity ,for example volunteering. That gives a very good image to your curriculum and even if you have no background of a job the person hiring you will probably consider hiring you. Just a suggestion. Either way I hope you can get a job soon, best of luck ! :)

    • that’s how the jobs market works, you only get a call or email when they do accept you, and as far as being accepted goes, even without experience, it’s pretty much dependent on the time, place and the people you know, you need to be always on the lookout online or in stores for available positions. employers like seeing people who are keen and interested don’t be afraid to just ask around and see if there are any open positions available. hope this helps you @flameaura
