I can't seem to get hired anywhere!?

I am a 17year old Male. I have been searching a job for months! I need a job so I can start earning an income to move out sometime next year and to head off to college, get a car, ect. I don't see why I can't get hired. Everyone in my school has either had a chance for a job or has one yet I can't get one! Yes, I am currently not in school anymore and going for my GED so I probably get put more on the bottom of the application lists, but I at least should have a chance for an interview I would think. I have a very open and flexible schedule. Able to work any day or the week and any hours of the day. I am hard working and dedicated when I have my heart set on something like a job. I am devoted and motivated to work hard and ensure customers satisfaction and everything, yet I can't seem to even get a job at a fast food restaurant like McDonalds or any retail stores. I mean I get that you have more of a chance to get a job with job experience before, but how can I have it if no place is willing to give me the chance to have it or show them how good I can be towards working? I guess my question that I need support on is how can I make myself stand out from others? Show a place that they would have been happy to hire me? Is there any sites I can go on to help support me finding a job? I just need steps on how to get a chance for a job or at least an interview.

Not having high school/GED is a huge issue, as you are aware. 9 out of 10 jobs won't even consider you. So get that GED as soon as possible... More
