  1. Coping With Social Anxiety
    I've actually been trying to type this for a while, but it's very difficult to put the issue I want to talk about into writing, so I apologize if this is all over the place. OK, so here is the thing: I need a job really bad, and I have no more money to spend, time to waste, or help from others...
  2. Coping With Social Anxiety
    I'm 17 years old - it's about time I get a part-time job. I do most applications online, in part because of my SA but also because that's what the hiring managers suggest I do. Does anyone have advice on how to at least get my foot in the door? I've been told to "harass" and bother the...
  3. Coping With Social Anxiety
    Hey, everyone. I started working a few days ago, at Macy's, as a price support person. My responsibility is basically to scan the barcodes on clothing and other items, and check to see if the ticketed price needs a discount sticker. There are a lot of items to scan, and also a form that I use to...
  4. Coping With Social Anxiety
    I haven't worked in 8 months and only have lightly tried finding work. I need a job badly now, being a recent college graduate, but my chosen field is more of a self-starter industry. In the meantime, I'm going to have to man up, face the ridiculous amount of anxiety, and apply for a crummy...
  5. Just For Fun
    Hey so I have this blog that needs critiquing. I don't mean to advertise it on these forums but its the only thing I've got right now since I got fired(because of my blog!) If its one thing I've learned from having SA, its that fellow SAers are thoughtful and reflection artists - so your...
  6. Coping With Social Anxiety
    I won't tell you where I work, but I'll just tell you that it was for one of the big box retailers. I have a bunch of people on my Facebook page that are managers and coworkers. Some people found a link to my blog site and it got around work. Some thought it was the most hilarious blog they ever...
  7. The Work Place
    I'm 19 and I've never had a job. I always apply to places, but never hear anything back, I think it's because I don't have any work experience, which is sort of ironic. I really need to get a job to pay for school, and at this point I'm not above begging. :blank How do I get a first job? How...

  9. Coping With Social Anxiety
    I want a part time job to save up money and to have something to do with m time, but even the thought of asking for the application is scary. I can only imagine how difficult and embarrassing it would be to have to go for the quick training and meet all the people who work there alrea'dy. I...

  11. Coping With Social Anxiety
    Hey everyone, I just turned 24 and my SA is keeping me from holding down a normal job. I have a high school diploma, I have good conversation skills, good work ethic, clean look, but I'm too freaked out to get a job. I've had many jobs before, but I never held on to them. I live with my parents...
  12. Coping With Social Anxiety
    How do you guys deal with working/getting a job? My anxiety peeks when I just ask for an application and I've never had a job interview, the thought just terrifies me. What kind of jobs are best with SA? Have any of you guys gotten a job that wasn't so good for SA, but you still managed...
  13. The Work Place
    So, I'd been looking for a job in the IT field for the past 6 months (specifically in the areas of programming and web development). I got my Associate's last year and had a few job interviews, but no offers (most places were looking for more experience). I finally decided to bite the bullet...
  14. Coping With Social Anxiety
    So I'm 18, and looking for work. But that's not why I've come here, obviously. I've never had a job before, and I applied at a couple of places. Well, one place I applied at (McDonalds; you gotta start somewhere) called me back. But I was so scared about the prospect of doing a job interview and...
  15. The Work Place
    I don't post here much, but a couple of months ago I posted this thread about looking for a job. Well, after recently graduating from a community college with my Associates in Computer Science, I decided to put my resume out there. Now, I must say that my resume is very thin and includes NO...
