Thanks for the feedback and encouragement. Lets think of some starter jobs that I, or anyone else starting off, could jump into as a first job that doesn't require much skill. Thanks again.

Thumbs up Starter jobs

Meerkat my father told me long ago to begin with summer jobs and not to do the same summer job every year . They should be of interest to you but not your lifes work after all thats what you are looking for in the part time job one that fits you your skills and education .

Hi Mark,

I was in the same position as yours. I am a recent grad with no experience. I have started calling recruiters and posted my resume on workopolis stating that I'm looking for a part-time entry level position. A recruiter called me and found me this job. Do you have any degree? If not you can indeed go to college to gain confidence and work as co-op.

Default tell them what you have done

Its not a problem if you havent had a "real" job until 23.. as long as you can explain what you where doing all those years..try not to appear as too lazy..overemphasize whatever you have done

good luck

Nick

I'm 23 years-old and have never had a job. I haven't had the guts to try getting a job all these years because I'm terribly shy around people and find it extremely hard to talk with new people, such as employers at a job interview.
so what should he emphasize then if he's never had any job? I'm actually in the same position as you Meerkat except I'm a bit younger.
