Post your resume. What do you wear to interviews? Do you have a letter of reccomendation?

You need to sell yourself. Go in dressed right. Dont go in blue jeans and a ripped up shirt. Make sure you work aggressivly get in there multiple times. Drop like 10000 applications. Whatever the hell it takes dude. Write down any and ALL talents that would aid you in that work.

To sum that up to the short and sweet. You must sell yourself to them.

I can't seem to get a job either.

I'll go in, drop off a resume, they say they'll call and they never do, so I go in a few days later to see what's up, and the position's been filled.

Bullshit.

You're either not marketing yourself, have no marketable skills, have a shitty resume or dress like a bum.

If you're talking about a non-professional job, then disregard all of the above.

You have a lot of potential. If you type up your resume like that you would most likely become the world's best burger flipper at McDonald's. Actually, they won't even let you cook them, you'll just be called over when the patties need flippin'.

I am talking about a non-professional job.

I happen to like physical work... warehouse jobs or whatever.

People don't even hire me for those.

You still have to dress up, no matter how much you think it doesn't matter. I've noticed that people hire me watch for eye contact and your ability to keep the conversation going.

Take a shower before you go. Don't want to smell bad. It also helps if you don't look retarded. Geht a suit. Dress professionally. Act professionally. That is the key to greatness. Have a strong voice. Don't be timid. Joke with the guy. Or you can go sell shit on eBay. :happysad:

I can't really help you. The last two jobs I got I basically showed up in my pjs and was hired on the spot. I kinda lucked out. Never even had a formal interview. But I know that if you have piercings other than one set for the ears for girls or tatoos or anything outragous that you should take them out, cover them up, or tame it. Also, turn off the cell phone and don't chew gum. Lets see, what else did they tell me to do at school? Show up a little bit early so you're waiting for them and they don't have to wait for you. Shake hands. Yada yada. Hope that helps.

If thats what you are into, did you ever think about joining a labor union? You can walk on to a trade skill job as an apprentice for $8-$9 bucks an hour and have a journeyman's card in about 2 years makeing upwards of $20-$28 bucks an hour on union contracts.
Back in cleveland I was in the tapers & painters union (drywall finishing) it was'nt bad.

You might want to start with your grammar and spelling. If I were an employer and saw such horrid mistakes as that on a resume that's supposed to be professional, I'd personally throw it in the garbage and set your mother on fire. :thumbsup:

You should post your resume. And if you are going to go to an interview you should wear something half way desent.

That's what I was thinking.

Everybody says I should go into drywalling, cause I'm tall. Tomorrow hopefully a guy will call and get me to help him with his job. If he does and I do well, hopefully I'll have a job.

As for the last job I applied for, it's run by people who know me very well, and I know them well.

They hired my cousin. :confused:

Hell yea, tall tapers rawk! :thumbsup: I am tall also, it helps when you place the tape over the seam, it is easier for tall guys to make one one long strip. The dust fucking sucks ass ... and so do paint the paint fumes, but it's all worth the pay check :D
With jobs like that, it's all about getting on a good crew thats fun to work with. Try to avoid the "hardcore union, anti-scab labor" guys ... they are fucking tools. They will bitch about how scab labor is taking money out of your pocket for 8 hours staight while you do all the work.
