Yet another person lines up to feel Guin’s pain.
In fact, I was gonna post a thread about this myself the other day. Been job hunting for over a month now. Just plain old retail - coffee shops, bookstores, clothing stores, part-time. I’ve called about 45 different businesses. I’ve filed maybe 20 applications with businesses that claimed to be hiring. I am not exaggerating, that’s an actual estimate.
And to this date, not ONE has called me back. I called one of my references, who said no one has contacted her about me. I have not even sat in on an interview in this entire six-week period. I talked to the student job center the other day, and they were baffled.
I really don’t understand what’s going on. Can the economy actually BE so far down the shitter that even something like a GROCERY STORE doesn’t have an opening? If I can’t get work by, say, April, what the hell am I supposed to do?
