No Chance Experience

Finding a job is hard to do
Employers will just look at you
Never giving you a chance
Without any experience
This is wrong-- it aint no lie
Never letting someone try
And seeing what you might find
If they were just given time
To learn and start to really grow
As their skills begin to show
Working hard right from the start
And proving what is in their heart
A smile you will always see
For this opportunity
So please don't turn someone away
Who hasn't worked a single day
When employers always choose
To follow all these job skill rules
Not stopping to realize
This first timer before their eyes
Just might be a shining star
And go very very far

This was written because my children are going through this right now.  They can't get a job with no experience, and they can't get experience with out a job.  Its a never ending battle.

    This is very, very true. I applied recently for a job and didn't recieve it, for this was the first work I was ever applying for and I had no past experience. I got the rejection, but they gave hope saying they kept my resume in their file, as if they'd ever think twice to hire me! A very true and awsome poem! lovely my dear! xoxo hugs and kisses all around. We will all find work one day, either being a poet, or a bookseller, or a ditch digger or a doctor, we will all find work one day! :)
