I have been applying for about 5 jobs a week (online and handing it in) for 3 years but I have only gotten 1 interview and 1 trial run.Most of my friends have one or two jobs. I don't know what I am doing wrong.
Put on clean clothes, walk down the street, go in every door that looks like a business, and ask if they are looking for some help. Some places will tell you they are taking applications. Well, you are not interested in applications, you are looking for somebody who is hiring. Leave that place and keep looking. You will have a job by the end of the day.
