Reality has finally caught up with you after all these years of fooling yourself. The problem is you have a bigger challenge that you realize unfortunately. Not only do you not have a High School Diploma or GED, you don't even have any kind of work experience to fall back on and in todays world of high unemployment, you are basically unmarketable as you really don't have anything any employer wants or needs. Now you could go get your GED but with no work experience to fall back hurt will kill you in the real world as in finding any kind of work, but we all do some stupid things in our life but you really have outdone so many. Maybe you can start your own business in something like Landscaping but that's your only hope unless you have a really good friend or relative that could hire you or maybe even get lucky and find a rich older woman looking for a young boy. The bad thing here is you only have yourself to blame here for your non actions. Good luck and Merry Christmas
Hello all, I am a school drop out. I studied till 10th grade. I have been just enjoying my time doing nothing. I never thought of taking a job. I am 27 years old. Now, I realise that I should go for a job. But can't get one. Any help?
Get a job at a call center, KFC, McDonald's.
I think you should first look for something you're good at! I mean utilise your talents! Suppose you are a good writer... So write books, for a newspaper, for magazines etc. If you're good at photography, look forward to being a photographer. And so like this you have many professions!
Start your own business or something your skills and talents, you'll be surprised how far you'll go. If you can sing, act or even dance, utilize your gift and it'll take you places. Although, when you dropped out of school, you should have had your whole future planned ahead of you, now you just have to figure out the person you want to be. Do apprenticeships and training programs, trust me in no time, you'll figure things out.
You'd better study a skill to enhance your competitive power. I mean you can work during the day and study at night?
Don't worry! All is not lost.
If you are serious about getting a job, I would look into completing your GED or HSED. Most jobs when hiring someone your age will look to see if you have completed high school or have a GED/HSED. Most community colleges/technical colleges/vocational colleges offer these classes and administer the test.
While you are working on your GED or HSED try to do some volunteer work. Most job applications will allow you to put volunteer work on. Even if they don't, the people you volunteer with or your volunteer coordinator could probably give you a good reference if you work hard and show up when you are supposed too--which are great job qualities. Most nursing homes/assisted living homes/hospitals/church or other religious groups have opportunities to volunteer. Also while you are working on your GED/HSED you can try to get a job somewhere like McDonald's
Once you have your GED/HSED you can try to get better jobs go on to other post-secondary school which can dramatically include how much money you can make in a lifetime.
If you have trouble finding a job most schools (the one you get your GED/HSED) might have jobs services. Otherwise you can contact a free job service to help you find one.
Best of luck
