Job advice

Postby HelloThere2012 » Fri Oct 12, 2012 4:23 pm

Hello all,

I've been pondering this now for some time, but have not yet reached a viable solution. I am 20 years old, graduated from a private school with an A and have boast-worthy command of the English language (round of applause, if you please) and speak Russian too. I attempted to contact a few companies and applying for a Customer Service position since I believe that I will manage well enough, but have received no response. Considering all of the above, I simply ask for your opinions on what sort of field I should concentrate my efforts (anything bar/restaurant-related is a last resort and will be considered if the unemployment rate plunged further to unheard-of depths). Would applying for a job with an English newspaper be feasible? Let's hear it all.

Thanks in advance.

I am 20 years old, graduated from a private school with an A (in what?) and have boast-worthy (?) command of the English language (this isn't very good english) (round of applause, if you please) (inappropriate and irritating request) and speak Russian too. I attempted to contact a few companies and applying (inconsistent use of tenses) for a Customer Service position since I believe that I will (future conditional tense needed here, ie. 'would' rather than 'will') manage well enough, but have received no response (sentence probably unnecessarily long). Considering all of the above, I simply ask for your opinions on what sort of field I should concentrate my efforts (anything bar/restaurant-related is a last resort and will be considered if the unemployment rate plunged (incorrect use of past tense; present tense needed) further to unheard-of depths). Would applying for a job with an English newspaper be feasible? (no) Let's hear it all.

Thanks in advance.

He may only be 20, but the errors ZoC pointed out are the things you learn at school, not with age.

I agree with Zonk. We need to keep foreigners out of this country. :)

you may not, as neither his age nor mine are relevant.
