When you apply at these places, do you do a follow up call a few days later? Sometimes that will make or break your chances. Sometimes it even takes several calls. Don't be afraid to call a potential employer to let them know how interested you are in a position.

With my job, it took a call twice a week for a month to get in, and my God it paid off really well. That's how badly I wanted that job. I wouldn't give up on it. And now I'm 18 and have a career lined up already.

Keep trying. These are difficult times, but trust me, be persistent, and you may get what you want.

My Computer: eMachines T5226 - Intel Pentium D Dual Core @ 3 GHz - Diamond Viper Radeon HD3870 OC Edition with 1 GB GDDR3 VRAM - 4 GB PQi Turbo DDR2-533 RAM - Corsair 650W PSU with 52A on single rail - TSSTcorp DVD-DL+-RW combo drive - Lite-on 52x CD-RW burner - Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi XtremeGamer - Logitech z5300e speakers - WinFast TV Tuner - Vista Ultimate 64-Bit. eBay name: Flightsimboy304

^Agreed. Follow the philosophy that they will hire you just to stop hearing from you.
Don't take life too seriously -- no one gets out alive. Plus, who wants to arrive to the hereafter in pristine condition wearing a suit and tie?
I want to slide in sideways, worn out, used up, hair a mess, clothes tattered, & screaming, "Whooo! What a ride!"
