Cubethulhu wrote:Okay so I am twenty years old and I've basically never had a job. I mean I work for my families catering business but that just barely pays the bills. And to be honest I really hate cooking for a living. So recently I've been trying to get a real job. I've done everything I can think of. Newspaper ad's, job-sites, walk-in applications. Nothing seems to work. At the time my only realistic opportunities for career advancement are college which I don't have the money for and the military which I've heard plenty of horror stories about. So I'm wondering is there some sort of trick I don't know? Like is there some sort of government program that helps people get jobs? I mean I am in the dark about all of this. I just want a job that actually has me going somewhere. Any suggestions to my problem would be most appreciated.

What are your highly sought after, marketable skills?
