How I did it: I had been looking for a job for about a year but I hadn't tried as hard as I should have. Although I had been looking I had been quite fussy and had just been looking for retail positions. I eventually realised that I really needed the money and couldn't afford to be picky to expanded my search to cleaning jobs. I quickly got two interviews and got both jobs. Although it wasn't my ideal position, it's work and I wasn't in the position to be fussy. Read how I did it… 7 hours ago
How I did it: I cut the nonsense and just flung my resume out to everyone who would take it. I filled out so many applications that I could recite all the pre hire tests by heart.
Then I went on some awkward interviews
I got the job offer.
It's not as much as I'd like to be paid, but the title is STELLAR to help my resume start looking nicer. Read how I did it… 1 day ago
I am living as an anglophone in a francophone city. Technically it is bilingual but most people won’t hire you if you don’t speak fluent French.
I have been working with the government employment program to do a French integration so that I can get a good job here. I have been here five years and finding Anglophone jobs is painstaking and I have to take what I can get.
I’ve sent out more resumes and have been searching my neighborhood to find something close to my house. 4 days ago

How I did it: It took me a really long time. After having two interviews both go wrong (I've been applying for a few years so to have two interviews seemed depressing to me...), I was kind of giving up. However, I noticed a new grocery store opening up pretty close to where I lived. I went and applied online, not expecting much like the million other applications I've sent in else where. But behold, I got an interview! I was so excited! During my interview, I remembered to try and be as friendly and as bubbly as I could... apparently it worked! I'm so happy!
