    Really, you don't have a lot of experience. You indicate that you worked occasionally at these places you have listed. When you add up the actual hours you have worked in each place, it is not very much. Also, the fact that you have worked at so many different places indicates to employers that you have a tendency to jump around from job to job. They think that if they hire you, you won't be there for very long and will quit in a very short time.

    To increase your chances of getting hired on, I suggest that you eliminate the volunteer jobs from your resume and just list the real jobs that you held. At least it won't look like you go from job to job.

    Most of the time, it's your resume that prevents you from getting an interview. My friend is a manager, and she told me that if the format or layout of the resume is bad, then she won't even skim through it.

    Get someone to help you enhance your resume, and you'll be getting job interviews in no time.

    There also the fact that getting a job is based on Who you know, not What you know. Talk to people, start networking, and tell people that your looking. It's the only way you're going to get noticed by future employers.
