I'm 20 and I've only had one job. Unfortunately, the job market in my area is shit.
Edit: Had another job. The boss said it was one of those jobs that some people just can't do. I was one of those people, so I got let go.

22, living in the SF Bay Area, and never had a job.
Can't do internships because I don't know enough about coding. Gonna try to find an office position so I don't have to take up retail (as I'm paranoid that going retail means dealing with retarded customers and ass hours that prevent you from having a social life).
Now I'm kinda starting to regret majoring in Computer Science. dat outsourcing
20, can't find a job because no one wants to hire me just for a summer before I go back to college. I've applied 8 places (I live in a small town) and everyone says that they are looking for long-term workers.
Which means, every summer, I am unemployed. When I get back to college, I have an easy library job waiting (as in, people play World of Warcraft for a 4-6 hour shift and get PAID to play World of Warcraft because college students never get help from the student workers, but the adults who have Ph.D.s in library science)
20, nearing 21, one job which lasted for years! :D
except it was only for about 25 days out of the year... D:
Not been employed since despite my efforts, and I have long railed against the one job which wanted to interview me twice.
If I didn't dress nice for the second interview, they would terminate the interview as quickly as possible.
what was the job?
minimum. wage. dishwasher.
I feel your pain, man. Went through a similar situation myself.
A restaurant in-town had a sign outside that read "HELP DESPERATELY NEEDED- INTERVIEWS ASAP".
So I went in, did the interview, all seemed to go okay, until...
"Why do you wear those [red] glasses indoors?"
"I have too. I'm photosensitive- bright light hurts my eyes. These fix it though."
"So you can't take them off?"
"I see. Well, it was nice meeting you, but we don't have any more room for employees right now."
"But the sign..."

My name is Cu Chulainn. Beside the raging sea I am left to moan. Sorrow I am, for I brought down my only son.
26 years old.
No friends, no extended family of speak of. Never held down a job. Majored in art. Sponging off my mother, who is paying the loan despite sizable credit debt.
Yep, pretty much a cautionary tale. Unlike the rest of you guys, I'm deservedly jobless.
16, had a job at a industrial light source warehouse for about a year, until one week I worked more hours than my state allows, and I was fired for getting the company into trouble (i.e. an angry call from my mom) :|
Isn't that just bullshit? I had the same problem with a dishwasher job, if I didn't dress up they'd cancel the interview as soon as possible. Of course, I didn't even get to that part because they had turned me down without even bothering to tell me for three weeks.
24. I've had a few jobs in the past, though my resume isn't particularly competitive. Mainly, I seem to be at that exact point where I'm either too underqualified or too overqualified for everything. Looking at a few different ways to fix the former problem, have been stymied on some fronts there too, though. :|

I'm 22 and have had two jobs, dorm desk attendant and dining hall drone. The campus dining service has so much turnover they don't even interview student workers. If you come to them at the beginning of a semester they just say, "here's when your training is, here's the shifts we have available. Don't screw up."
I'm about to graduate, so I don't have student work to fall back on anymore and I don't have money to relocate to where the highly specialized jobs I'm qualified for are...
