Posted:I lost my job in December.

I have been finding it really hard to find work, partly through my own faults, like not looking hard enough. But also because of my age. Also I have had a run of really bad luck that lasted for about 4 months.

I have been job hunting today as I am so desperate for a job. I finish my exams at the end of june and my parents can't keep paying for everything for me...

So i have done some thing i feel really bad about and i'd like other peoples views...

I applied for a job at McDonalds...

I feel like scum!


THWACK!!!!

Posted:Its a tricky one - I know how hard it can be to get a job and it only gets harder the longer you're without one.

I got to the point where I thought something was wrong with me, I would never get a job again and I was worthless. Then when I got a job (quite a good one too) I was so insecure that I thought I couldn't cope. After a few weeks that feeling went and I started to hete working and wish I was free again!

Therefore I don't blame you for doing what you've done, but there is a moral issue. If I were you I'd use it as a stepping stone to a batter job soon after.

Good luck hug

Posted:i don't want to have a career there just a short term job. i am also applying to many other places in a desperate hope not to work there. i wanna work in ice nine (a cool alternative shop in nottingham, uk) and they have a vacancy! so I'm not a full scummy censored yet... and I'm hoping not to be. although they do pay good wages to those at 16... 4 an hour. i do feel slightly better now, though I'm not sure if i deserve to...
