What is a modicum of skill though? Are you asking for previous work experience in a similar role or making it clear that no work experience is necessary?
My nephew has been looking for basic labouring/factory work for the past 3 months and cannot find anything entry level. Almost every job wants him to have a forklift ticket and a minimum years experience in similar work.
I remember when I was young and wanted entry level work. It was so easy! I showed up, had a chat with the line manager, and started a trial day the next day. If you did alright you were good to go. Now you go along and you get told to speak to HR. HR expects you to have prior experiences, gets you to fill out a few forms, and then they tell you they will get back to you in a couple of weeks....but they rarely do.
