I'm 25 now currently at University but unsure if I will be going into the final year because of complicated issues. They can lead to careers too or a stepping stone. It can be helpful I can confirm the baby steps as everyone has suggested works though i am great with a large crowd of people when it comes to one individual I can only hold a short conversation. I got fired form my job last spring for these reasons, but I believe they also used my shy nature to take advantage of me by piling more work in staples, also after I cut my hours to 2 days or 3 they didn't understand the concept of part time, by feet always hurt, and I was always begging for the job to end so I could get out, I really disliked it. Some of these people could hardly read or write and had no interest in learning. It was the only time I felt happy and felt I had any friends.
I had to drop out of college and help keep my parents on their feet for a year and a half. At this stage I can hardly step outside without feeling a great sense of shame and uselessness. Maybe you should ignore employment and try to improve yourself. Try Seasonal retail help around the holidays, maybe a Halloween shop around the fall, a course or sports stadium over the summer for baseball or something? I don't think it's going to get any easier as we get older and our habits become even more entrenched. Places like this care about reliability, dependability, ability to work without supervision, etc.
I am 22 and have no idea where it is that I want to go with my life. And it sucks when you're trying to get a job because most employers want experience. You're not alone and that things can get better. However, of course some of us need to work meaningless jobs in order to feed ourselves. Almost 36, never had a job, can't ever imagine myself having one.
At least when they lie about their accomplishments, they feel approved even temporary. Even when I get down with a show I leave and go to the car for a few minutes while the guys are tearing down equipment so I dont have to talk to the drunks or other people until they start clearing out. It's good that you are confronting this head on. Why exactly do you want to volunteer with us? Not sure that's really an option tbh. Am i going to feel like i'm not just a waste of space, is it going to stand in the way of me becoming something more meaningful to me- ie.
And just thinking about it makes me really anxious. Give some volunteer experience while you're unemployed. I'm still strugglingtooo its tough. How do I learn to not constantly be so cerebral? Skyflyz's right; you do have experience. I wish you luck, there are many jobs to be had, they aren't glamorous, but it's a start.
It's like to be a human is all about earning money. Even is too expensive for me, and that´s why I need to work. Granted that is not the norm, but you will be competing with people most of whom have 6-8 years, or finished College. I'm not outgoing I'm a total introvert. It's easy to lose touch with everything, being this isolated. Not old per se, but their future looks shitty.
Try to volunteer in a cause you are passionate about or in a field you want to learn more about. For instance, successfully marketing yourself for freelance work on the internet is nothing to be scoffed at! I wasn't even worthy of working at Starbucks or the Gap last time I applied. But keep in mind that when you start working, think of it as building yourself up and leveling up too. I wouldn't say you're doomed though. So, on the basis of your language I would like to suggest you some of the easy ways to get started - 1.
K not having a job is what is making me go 500 mph. A lot of times i'll spend months being broke. I am a very shy and reserved person. I think the trigger for me to drop out was a major freak out about my lack of work experience and prospects I was 19 and had never had a part time job or anything. But when someone asks me about myself 'so, what do you do? You could try getting a job at a local movie theater.
I had to tell them, look, I am not experienced in this, I am a complete beginner. Perhaps you can start by getting a work-study job as a. So the thought of interviews terrifies me, and filling in job applications is like pulling teeth. I'm in the same situation as you Hunter cept I'm 23 and your right they don't even give ple a chance now these days to even prove their selves if we don't have the experience. I've been doing that ever since.
