Having Trouble Snagging Job? Only Serious Advice Please!?

I've been working since I was 13yrs old. I worked 3 jobs in high school to support my family. I went to college for free but decided to drop out after my first year to pursue my 2nd dream-being salon owner/product line/etc. In 2004 I lost all three jobs, so I decided to go to school. Since then I've got my licenses to work in a salon. I am wanting to go back to school to take some classes for what I want to do. But I need a job first ($$$)...I've had the worst time with work! Employers that don't pay me, etc. Its 2007 and I'm 23 and still have no job (its been a year!) I've always been independent and its killing me! I've applied everywhere! That's all I do M-F. I sometimes get to speak with the hiring manager and I never say anything negative about past employers. I would love to get into a salon-but applied everywhere. I believe a school I transfered from is bad mouthing me. At this point I don't care where I work-I've applied at gas stations, fast food, part time, full time! HELP ME Pengy-thanks for you far as I dress usually black dress pants with a short sleeve white blouse, red kitten heels, minimal jelewry, natural makeup-hair usually up and curled. i used to public speaking so its nothing (i still get nervous, who doesn't) ppl usually comment on my country accent-i've never lived in the country and my parents don't have it i got it from my greatgrandparents-haha! i am partially deaf in both ears but read lips well.

The question seems to be how do you present yourself? Are you dressed well, do you speak well? Do you make a good first impression? No a school is not contacted nor making bas references to you, it would not be good for their reputation and PR. First place I would look at is how I look, and then my attitude in... More
