    I should hope so, I've been unemployed since March. If things don't pick up soon I may go crazy and end up on the news in a story that ends with 'before turning the gun on himself...'

    I've graduated high school, so I really have to... eventually.

    In today's environment experience is vital. Lately it seems to be the first thing that is asked for.

    Which is annoying since sometime also has to be the first time.

    Luckily enough I got hold of a pretty damn nice work as the stock manager at a company for a month through the use of contacts but otherwise I'm pretty sure I would've been without a job this whole summer.

    Same... But I don't want to, I start college soon, so I want to enjoy my peace, but I cant do that with such tight finances. I hate growing up

    Growing up sucks. But if you put it in perspective, a few sacrifices aren't too bad.

    I've applied in a couple of places so I just have to wait for some interview calls.

    Maybe this sunday I'll get an answer if I got a job at fixing computers for a local computer store.
    Without a Job I'll be sitting at home doing almost nothing.

    I have a job which I make about $100/day, however I don't have to come in every day and it's otherwise very mentally intensive (and its not really an 8 hour work day either)

    I've got 2 this summer. I'm working at a pizza shack, handing out flyers in the town center and bringing them round in the neigbourhood. 2 times a week, pays really nicely with big bonuses from my boss.
    The second job, i'm not sure yet. I've applied for a job at a supermarket filling shelves, pays extremely well, this would be 2 times a week. I've just to wait for the phone call to come in.
    Or i'm going to be selling ice cream. My father knows a bloke who's in the ice cream business and he offered me the job. I can always apply and start work there.

    I've been working every day in June bar three and July bar one (that includes weekends). Worst thing about it is, i'm on minimum wage, so even though i do sixty hour weeks, i'm still earning less than everyone else who works there.

    Still, three more weeks and i'll be in CANADA!
