Looking for jobs. - July 2nd 2009, 01:35 PM

What do you say?¿ Do you walk in and go 'uh...here's my CV(resumè)' or are you supposed to ask if they have any jobs going...or are you supposed to ask for a manager... or do yuo ask if you can hand in your CV.... or WHAT?¿

(I'm mostly thinking of applying for a job in some kind of shop, because that's where I have the most working experience and it's also somewhere I'd just like to work.)

Ask if they have any jobs going, if they say no then ask if you can hand in a CV just in case any open and I think most of them will take it and hold it for a while.

Well, it depends on where you are applying. Usually you go in and just ask if they're hiring, or if they will be in the near future. Then say you would like to apply for the job and they will usually tell you what to do from there. Then you should ask to speak to the manager so that he/she knows your face and knows that you're interested. Then just keep going in and calling in, for whatever reason managers like that, I personally think it would be annoying, but whatever. I hope that helps, and good luck.

Well, when I was looking for a job I would just go into various places and ask the receptionist or somebody if they had any part time jobs they needed some staff to fill or something along those lines. Usually if they didn't have a position for me they would put my name down on a list incase a job opportunity came up. So, pretty much go in and ask them. The worst that can happen is they say no!

Good Luck!
