Is anyone else having trouble finding a job due to lack of experience? I've been searching for jobs since recieving ead in October and have only been on two interviews. What can I do to seem more interesting to employers?

Where have you been looking? A lot of my friends found jobs using craigslist and while it is risky, I'm sure you are smart enough to tell the difference from a fake and legit company.

I've tried Craigslist, indeed, availablejobposting, glassdoor and snagajob. I live in Jersey, idk if its the job market here but I'm not having any luck.

What are you looking and what would you like to find? Do you have a resume?

The key to get interviews is having a good well organized/formatted resume. Remember to make it easy to read so people can pick it up and glance quick at it and still think you are interesting/worthy of an interview.

Also, try online applications at restaurants and stores.

I have a resume but no formal work experience. I was hoping to get a job as a receptionist preferably medical receptionist. My cousin referred me on her job I filled out an application and met the hiring agent. They seemed really happy to meet me but it's been a week and still nothing. Everyone is telling me to call more but I don't want to be a nag. BTW the position is hotel front desk. I really need this job because it's part time pays well and I could really use the extra money to help out with some college expenses.

You have to insist so they know you are serious about getting the job. It isn't always the case, but sometimes you have to insist.

Always check online what's the pay rate, don't accept less.

I've tried online applications. It's just frustrating. I have no formal experience so I'm selling my self the best I think I can right now.

Ok. I'll keep that in mind. I appreciate your advice.
