Why are you so worried about credit?
You plan on buying a house tomorrow?
No, but you need it for renting apartments, and opening credit cards...
I have an apartment now but I loathe paying a big extra deposit for lack of credit
Model do you work fulltime or at least 25 hours a week? Open up a checking account in your name, this does give you a little something to work with, if you do not already have one. Then try one of the department stores many times they are more eager to hand out more credit cards during the busy seasons because they want you to shop. Of course only purchase something small that cost $25. You may be able to find a store that will give you a credit card with a small limit. I am surprised about your car ordeal, you see lots of places advertise that your job is your credit, but oh well.
To the OP sorry this happens to you, as many others have said, keep trying you will be blessed. I worked in human resources for almost 17 years, and when we wanted to change an offer or not hire someone we would start the process of elimination by doing a series of things and one of them was going through credit reports. People would be surprised what goes on behind closed hiring doors. What you are told to do. Sometimes a person will make a hiring decision and the big people do not like it, so they have to think of ways to resend the offer. Not saying this is your case....I have also seen so many exceptions made for "other" regardless of their credit score or job references, but that is how it goes....May your credit improve and may you blessed with funds to clean it up, check it good first, because there are lots of mistakes on credit reports.
