Call up local labour businesses (junk hauling, house clean-ups, painting, etc..) and ask if they need any extra guys.

Was NEET for 6 months before I got employed.

Secret of is is basically:
Strike while the iron is hot, but make it hot by striking

Basically, like a lot of things in business, getting a job takes a lot of luck. If you send out 10 applications, you might get 1 reply. Out of 10 replies, you might get 1 interview. Out of 10 interviews, you might get 1 job offer.

So the best way to do this is throw enough shit at the wall until something sticks. Meaning send out applications CONSTANTLY, like 10 a day or something, and eventually you'll get something.

Alternatively, if you have contacts somewhere, that's a more solid way of getting work, but if not

Do you have cash? Spend the time traveling or educating yourself in a field you may be interested working in. No cash? Deploy panic applications to jobs which are beneath you, but not too far beneath, no one will hire a PHD to sweep the streets.

Enjoy your neet time. I miss mine.

It can be horrible and depressing at the time, but if used correctly it can be a pretty comfy period of your life.

Seconding the travel recommendation if you have some cash to hand as well.

Getting a job requires luck

Don't do any of this bullshit, just get a degree that I'd relevant to the market. I got a CS degree, applied for two jobs, got two interviews, two offers, picked the best one. EZPZ

I thought all NEETs were also white, so it was irrelavant. But, yeah, if non-white put in more effort.

@haveahappyday
How the fuck can you be a NEET for 4 months?

Go temporarily flip some burgers or something so you can at least get a basic income.
Or get some short term education like a language or something. Jesus!

This is YOUR fault.

Pick a job around you/where you want to live that makes a lot of money. Figure out what training that job requires. Acquire training. Apply for jobs in your chosen field until you're employed in your chosen field.

@Emberburn
No. Just pissed off to work overtime to pay for the extra taxes so the 'refugees' can go on a holiday while there's tons of these NEET fuckers around, draining the economy even more because they're either lazy or don't have any self respect while calling me 'wagie' on the fourth channel.
