I was one for about 3 years after I graduated high school, got a job, was laid off, became a NEET again for about 1 year, and am now currently going to college.

Well, I'm not technically a NEET since I'm going to college at the moment. However, I only take 1 class (which is about 2 hours) and spend the rest of the day not doing all that much so I'd guess I'd be like borderline-NEET.

Got a job
In education
Do my own laundry

Top tip: If you can't be bothered to iron, hang your clothes up on the bathroom door while you shower. The steam will de-crease them so you are somewhat presentable.

Man, how much I wish I could be a NEET, never in my life have I experience the wonderful life of a NEET. Sometimes I just think about quitting my job since I have no major responsibilities but then reality sets in(or more like the bills set in). Maybe one day my wish would come true, until that day I'll just have to keep my hopes up, waiting for the day that my NEET license arrives.

I'm a NEET because I couldn't find a job for four years straight, and still looking. My parents breath down my neck, I get "a" call a year if I'm lucky, dwindling funds... The grass always looks greener on the other side. EX: I consider my little brother who co-pays rent and barely has any money or time to himself to be in a better position, and everyone else thinks the same of my situation when compared to theirs. They'd love to not pay for rent.

I don't understand how it can be impossible to get a job. When I was 16 my mother pretty much forced me to get a part time job and I've been constantly employed since then working part time jobs or the occasional full time job. But perhaps my area didn't have as high an unemployment rate. I had three part time jobs when the unemployment rate was supposedly the worst in my area. I worked at Payless, Shopko (in the early dawn from 5-7 I watered plants), and I worked at a random game store.

As you say, it's not impossible. People don't know how to approach it.

Folks, getting a job isn't as simple as opening up your newspaper or web browser and picking a couple leads. That's reactive thinking. You need proactive thinking. Use your method of transportation. Go to businesses. Ask if they're hiring. If they're not, ask if they know anyone who is. Ask your friends too, especially those who are employed. Ask any past teachers or employers you've kept in contact with. Ask. Ask. Ask. There are a surprising number of jobs that are never advertised. You will only find them if you look for them yourself.

Perhaps more importantly, don't be afraid to start small, or even with a job you don't prefer. Maybe you have big expectations for yourself. That's admirable. Few people start in a senior position from day one. Focus on gaining experience. In fact, pick out a project and work on it. You can gain experience on your own. Employers like that quality in a candidate. You can also use it as a bullet point on a resume or a talking point for an interview.
