As long as you have no or minimal negatives, a few positives and additionally showing an ability, motivation and willingness to learn (which many canidates do)....then its up to who ya know. My daughter is going for some retail shop jobs and she is on the short list...getting an interview...to which she got because of having a relationship with the shop and knowing several folks that work there that can vouch for her skills, personality and perhaps reputation (which may or not help).

As a person that in the past interviewed and hired folks for relatively high pressure work. Its having excellent people skills, the ability to learn quickly...think analysis, synthesize/integrate and adapt/innovate in real time and a good reputation via the grapevine (not the professional references).

Good luck
