It's time I get a job. But I want a real job. I don't want to work at a fast food place or department store or something, because those are jobs you get when you're in high school, which I'm not anymore. It's time I start my life now, so if I'm going to get a job it needs to be worthwhile, and actually benefit me in some way. I don't want a job just for the sake of having a job, and I will not readily accept a job that'd be relatively easy. I want a job that I can live with, that I won't feel like I'm wasting my time with, that I won't feel I'm getting nowhere with, and the experience of which I feel would actually benefit me. I cannot, however, think of such a job.
ANY job is a good start. It gives you a work history, so when you find a job you like and apply for it...the employers have some kind of idea of your ability to arrive on time, your ability to work unsupervised, etc, etc. All work experience is beneficial, it sets you up for the future...and the bonus is...it puts money in your pocket. There is nothing wrong with having a job for the sake of having a job...if you want a good job you will need to prove yourself FIRST. You can always be in the process of looking for something else...but if you sit around waiting for the right job, and it takes months or years...what have you accomplished in that time?... NOTHING
Without a college, university education there isn't much that will interest you then. The jobs you state are high school job are that because it takes more of an education to get the other jobs. So unless you are going to upgrade you will alway be working in the "high school" jobs. Things don't come easily as just wanting a job and getting it. Today's world is very competitive and you really need to prove that you are able to handle such jobs. With out education or plenty of experience you will need to accept those "high school" jobs to live.
