When you go in to apply, are you dressed nicely, or are you just casually dressed? Are you polite, do you carry yourself like you want to work, or are you shuffling around with an "I could care less" attitude? How you look and act will say a lot about the kind of employee you will be. Be respectful to others, that goes a long way in today's society. Young people nowadays have no respect for the elderly(not all), and that is something that our society has to work on with the young people today. I hope you get a job soon.

Well you do know there is a recession ongoing, and the unemployment rates are high. What that means is stores and companies are not hiring, and if they do, they will hire people with experience over people who have no experience and pay them the same low wage.

All you can do is dress professionally, be polite, fill out applications, talk to people and see if anyone you know has connections, try to be creative and think outside the box for places to apply, and not just go through the mall like everyone else.

It really is hard out there right now, plus finding a retail job this soon after Christmas is tough. Stores often keep people on that worked the holiday season to fill open positions. Chances are better a little further out from the holidays.

Thinking outside of the box is a great idea :D Good answer miramar!

Depending on the job you might try a temp agency. A number of companies go this way to weed out undesirable employees.

First of all you should have a good record in order for them to accept you.Second you should dress properly and have a well mannered form of speech, that would give you a higher chance of getting a job.
