I am 18 years, absences at school, good grades and no remarks. I'm looking for a summer job. Every day I'm looking for vacancies on Finn.no and NAV. I have sent dozens of applications for all possible positions both in my own municipality and neighboring municipalities. The only thing I get is rejection of discounts, and most never answer my inquiries. Most people who get jobs nowadays get it through friends and acquaintances. They get jobs through someone they know whether they have applied for the job, testimonials and CV, grades, absences and how many comments they have.
