Okay, so first off, a few things about me that are, I suppose, relevant. I am 22 years old, and have been looking for an entry-level job since I was 19--three years. I have never had a paying job before--I did some volunteer work in high school, but due to a lack of time, I was never able to look for work in high school. I've only gotten a handful of interviews, none of which went anywhere. I'm autistic and have a bunch of other brain weirdness going on (more on that later). I really, really want a job. The thing is...I haven't been able to find one at all. I've found places that are hiring and filled out applications and sent in resumes and everything, and I have a resume that lists my volunteer work and skills, but no one has hired me, ever. I only even started getting interviews about two years into my search, and as I said, none of them have gotten me anywhere whatsoever. It's really not a matter of money for me, at least not currently--I live with my parents. It's a matter of my brain constantly holding me up to standards that I don't hold anyone else up to. Here's my brain's view of the thing: Acey needs a job to be a worthwhile human being. If Acey doesn't get a job now, she is never going to get one ever and will never be a worthwhile human being. Acey is 22 and is therefore too old to have never worked. This is proof of her worthlessness. Acey is the only person these rules apply to. If any of Acey's friends don't have jobs, that is fine--Acey is the only one who needs to have a job to have any sort of value as a human. I know consciously that my brain is being an ass and that none of that is actually true, but knowing that doesn't actually help me feel any better about it. It also doesn't help that I've had people be genuinely shocked that I've been looking for three years with no success, or that people get all incredulous when I say I'm 22 and have never worked. To me, that's just the world's way of telling me that my brain is right and that I actually am worthless. So I guess I need advice on both how to get (and keep) a job, and how to make the brainweird that's causing me to angst so much about it to go away? Thanks in advance. EDIT: Here's a screenshot of my resume, with personal info blacked out of course. Any advice there would be helpful as well.
