    You'll have to apply for jobs at other retailers. I hear what you are saying though, its a very crowded market at the moment :-(

    Supermarkets seem the likely choice considering they pop up everywhere.

    potluck, with these things nowadays. have to look good speak well, be educated to a good standard but not be TOO educated (degree) or they turn you down, to get just a supermarket entry level job. Many many factors.

    What area are you based. Could try a flasy retailer like selfridges. I worked there from the age of 18-21 and I absolutely loved it.

    Hang on, weren't you the one who made that thread about being a game tester and not getting any respect a year or two ago?

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    When I was younger I remember going for a group job interview at the Odeon where they made everyone design an outfit that went with a certain film out of a bin liner and some paper. I made an Iceman outfit from Top Gun and it looked EPIC!

    I swear they were taking the piss.
