I need a job.
I'm a Senior in High School and I need a job, but I can't seem to get one. I've filled out countless applications and I've only gotten 2 interviews. Both of which I didn't get the job. I've called back several times to several places, but it never seems to help. Every time I fill out and turn in an application, it doesn't feel like I'm turning in an actual application but rather turning in a small chance to be hired. Like a roll of the dice, except the dice has a lot of sides to it and the job is only on one of them. I feel like I have to keep rolling the dice (turning in applications) until I eventually get hired, but honestly, if I have to fill out another freakin application, I might just die. They are so annoying.
Now you're probably asking yourself, why do I NEED a job? Well, it's not really for the money, but rather to rejuvenate my sense of self-worth. To make me feel like I actually matter and give me sign that I'm actually becoming independent. That, and my parents keep nagging me to get one.
I don't know how my situation can be helped because for it to actually be solved, I would have to be handed a job but that's probably not very likely. Any help and/or advice would be very much appreciated.
