I'm 25 years old and have never had a job. I'm feeling pretty bad about it all the time and figure I need I finally so looking for a job I would like to do (something in IT) and just get a job in anything possible.

I don't have a degree. What do you think I should go for?

Food service, retail, gardening/lawn care, day-labor.

None of these require many skills, and most of the training is on-the-job.

It's pretty much the usually entry level work in retail, restaurants, or warehouses. Forget about IT for a while. You'll have to have some kind of schooling or certification for that and that's not a job someone on the street can get that's for sure. But like most of us, you may have to pay your dues by working the low paying, less than desirable low skilled jobs but as long as you have long term goals, doing these jobs will give you work experience and character. You don't necessarily need to go to college for better jobs, there are a lot of trades out there that focus on one type of in demand skill. College is overrated, believe me.
