I'm looking for a job, preferably not fast food as I don't do extremely well in fast paced environments. I've only had one job before and it was at Dairy Queen. I have experience in customer service and using a POS system and cash register. I'm almost finished with my GED and expect to be finished with it by the end of the quarter in June. I'm also planning on beginning Drivers Ed in the summer. I've been searching for a job since October and have had no luck since most places either want someone with experience or are just not interested in me in general. Any suggestions to places I could apply to or tips you have on making finding a job any easier would be greatly appreciated. #advice #help #job #Jobs #jobseeking #searching
