    I have no clue what I want to be when I leave school (next year) so any ideas what jobs would suit my description?
    I am shy, quiet, and adore animals. I have confidence problems and am not good at teamwork.
    My favourite subjects are English, art, history and food technology (cooking), and I love creative things.

    I thought about being an estate agent but cant work with people or computers =/
    Does anyone know how much you get aid for guide dog training? Its something ive always wanted to do =)

    Chef? You won't have to socialise because you'll work unsociable hours, you get to cook, you don't really need teamwork just to follow the orders shouted at you by the head chef...well you kind of do but its more about getting your own timings right, and you get to be creative with dish presentation.

    Training guide dogs is voluntary I'm afraid.

    Oh come one, there are plenty of very incompetent people out there with jobs. As long as you turn up on time you're doing better than a good proportion of the population.
