It shouldn’t be too hard to find a job at your age. There’s always nearby retail businesses looking for workers. I would say just keep searching. You will find a job eventually. Reach out to some friends who could possibly hook you up. Keep that chin up!

Reaching out for help is such a positive decision. We understand how stressful it must be for you not only looking for a job but having financial stresses. It's sounds like your emotional pain has become unbearable for you at this point. Remember that suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Suicide doesn't solve anything; it will only hurt you and your loved ones beyond repair. We can't stress how valuable your life is.
There may be a job service in your local area who can assist you with career counseling, job listings, etc.. Know that temporary jobs thru temporary job agencies can lead to permanent job opportunities.
It's so important that you reach out for support from your family and friends.
We would suggest getting evaluated by a medical doctor or mental health professional, and getting involved in counseling. Please contact 911 if you need immediate assistance. Know that there is help out there for you and you are not alone. Stay safe!

Find a job agency in your local area (not an online one). At first, you might only get short term work, but it may lead to something full time. You have to be prepared to do anything. If you are employed, it makes it easier to find the job you want (assuming you have the right qualifications).

Can't find a job doing what? Do you have any JOB SKILLS? Ever heard of a man named Mike Rowe? He had a show on TV called "Dirty Jobs". Now he's big on Facebook. Also has a show on CNN called " Somebody's Gotta Do It". http://mikerowe.com/shows/somebodys-gotta-do-it/s3...
He explains the fact American companies are literally SCREAMING for skilled tradespeople in fields like carpentry, electricians, plumbers, welders, Heating & A/C specialists, etc. The list is almost endless. Many of the trade schools are low cost. Some the company will PAY FOR. And these jobs can START at $60,000 to $80,000 a year.
Don't just look for a job. Look for a career! Flippin' burgers at Mickey D's is NOT a career. Get off your @ss and go investigate what I just wrote. You'll see I'm right. Hell...even my old trade before retirement is now begging for qualified truck drivers. The demand is sky high. Get a CDL (especially one with endorsements for Haz-Mat) and write your own ticket to MONEY.

Well if getting a job will determine your will to live that won't do anything to help you. It's not going to save you or anything. Try more places and keep your mind open. Most of the people that claim they need jobs actually just aren't looking in the right places.

“We should do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian Darwinian theory he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living.”Source(s): Buckminster Fuller:

have you considered the military? they have hundreds of jobs that aren't combat or infantry related. plenty of them can translate to civilian careers when your service is over. it's not forever, as standard enlistment contract is only four years long. you get paid training and experience, housing when on base, and other benefits. when your service is done, you could consider going back to school via the GI Bill, which will help pay for most of higher education. otherwise, you very well could find a similar job with the experience and training you get from the military. look around online. you maybe surprised what jobs they have to offer.
