It's ridiculous. I've maybe hit every store in 15 blocks in every direction; I've taken the bus downtown and hit the pavement there; and yeah, I applied to McDonalds, Starbucks, Gamestop, goddamn Dollar Tree, you name it.
How am I supposed to get work experience if I can't even get an entry level job? I just want SOMETHING, ANYTHING, and I've had a month to get it to no avail. Is this normal? Friends who've lived here longer than me (and longer in general) say that it is. I'm no slouch: I took AP courses in high school and did plenty of extracurriculars, and yeah, I know, life is not high school, but ffs I WANT to work. Put me down in the fucking coal mines if you have to.
Seriously though is there any advice?
