    Probably not for everyone but I saw the McDonald's management apprenticeship programme advertised yesterday which might be worth a look.

    I've got absolutely nowhere. Applied for quite a few but haven't got anywhere near an interview, not even the courtesy of a reply except from one.

    A job came up in IT at work which I applied for - the job description stated no experience was necessary as training would be provided. I was told I didn't get it as I didn't have the necessary experience!!

    I've basically given up as I've just wasted my time.

    If I can offer any advice I would suggest you perhaps try to become more focused with your job search - is it a particular industry you want to work in, or a certain type of role?

    I've recruited a few people over the last few years into IT roles and when I'm interviewing I basically want answers to 3 questions:
    1) Can they do the job? (I already think they probably can as I wouldn't have wasted my time giving them an interview otherwise, but I need to see if their CV checks out!)
    2) Will they love the job? (Why this job? Whats the motivation?)
    3) Can I tolerate working with them? (Will they fit in? Attitude? Character?)

    It sounds like you would struggle being able to successfully answer question number 2....? If you apply some focus in your job hunt, then you can also look at doing online courses to support it. There are shit loads, in all sorts of areas, and loads of them are free. Doing them demonstrates willing and commitment, even if they are fairly rudimentary, but would help you answer question number 2.

    I've seen stacks of CVs plus I've sent out my own dozens of times, I'll take a look at yours and offer some comments if you like. Like others have said, you will have skills whether you think you have or not. You must have used Excel, Word, Powerpoint? This forum is a great mention - moderation, but have you been involved in any configuration, data corrections, hosting side of things? The fact you've had donkeys years as an admin itself demonstrates commitment.
    If you work in telemarketing do you use a CRM, or some other form of customer database? You must have some familiarity with data protection - get more, read up on GDPR- the basic concepts and understandings is enough, most organisations are scared of it and will be impressed.

    Keep going. If its really not right for you where you are, don't give up.
