I live in Northern California, if it makes any difference, but is there much chance of my being employed this far into summer vacation? I've never had a job, but I applied to both Starbucks and Jamba Juice. The first said that they were not hiring at that particular location even though they had applications out and the second seems to have lost my application, even after I did two interviews. Is it worth it to keep applying at random places, or should I just focus on my summer classes? Did any of you have a difficult time getting your first job?
