    i'm sick of companies looking at my CV, being really enthusiastic about hiring me, inviting me for an interview asap, telling me about everything they offer in the job...then at the end of the interview after saying "yes, we would love to hire you" going "and how old are you?" and then saying "sorry we can't hire you" and then treating me like a child!
    its friggen ridiculous! i've had this happen to me FIVE times in the past couple of weeks and i've now given up. surely these idiots who work there actually CHECK the CV to see if they can hire me, including checking my age.

    so no more job hunting for me. i can just go with betterware, kleeneze, avon, dog walking and babysitting. does anyone have any ideas of what else i can do for money? I really need it!

    Something to consider... Have you ever tried to earn money online?

    All major companies can hire 16+ I had a job as soon as I hit 16 at Mc Donalds, sure it was a rubbish job but a job is a job :)
