I think you just need to revamp your resume. Work on condensing your history, elimate jobs that you left after only a few weeks, focus on the ones that will give you the best references and experience. Of course, never lie on a resume, but sometimes it helps just to change it around a bit, streamline it, focus on the jobs you held the longest.

You are very young and you write well. You will find something, do not give up!

Employers want to see a pattern of hard work - doesn't matter if you washed dishes, etc. It is still honest work.
I did. I have some very strong references as I recently made some calls. I don't include any of the menial food jobs on my resume. I had an interview two days ago that went well.

I'm feeling more confident. I have been receiving treatment and help and feel ready to move forward.

Why were you fired ? Didn't like to be told what to do? Had difficulty following instructions? Apply for a work tech trade program where they offer job assistance.
