TQC, I'm so discouraged.

I'm in the last month of a temporary job I got, and on June 14th, I need to move back home to San Francisco, CA to live with my parents and be unemployed. AGAIN.

The only job experience I really have is working in libraries, usually doing data entry or shelving books, or working in aquariums.

I'd really like a job as a waitress or a barista or a cashier at a grocery store or SOMETHING like that, but EVERY. SINGLE. JOB. I look at on craigslist in the retail or food service section requires previous experience in those fields. And I have none.

How does someone get a job when the only way to get a job is to have previous experience?

Will you complain about your job woes here? I need to feel less alone. :C
