How can an 18 year old highschool dropout find a job?
I am 18 and hardworking and I need to find a job or I will soon be homeless. I am willing to do any kind of work. I do not do ANY drugs, I drink very rarely, and have never broken the law, but in this economy, it is nearly impossible to find a job. Can someone please help me find a good way to find a job or maybe give me a job. I live in Denver Colorado and I can't get my GED without the money to take the test. It's a vicious cycle.

I can't get you a job, but check with your local high school, or community college to find out about getting a GED. It's critical. With the recession people with college degrees are having trouble. I am sorry about this.

It's not impossible! This is not the end, OK. Do not mistake the beginning for the end. What state are you residing as of now?

Look at Craigslist and Monster. Unfortunately, you will be discriminated against because you don't have a job.
