    Hi I'm getting to that stage where everybody is asking me why I take the A levels I do (French, Spanish and Biology) and what the hell I'm going to do with my life. I'm 16 and quite frankly I have no idea. Everyone tells me I have quite good people skills and I acknowledge it because I consider myself fairly friendly and I'm pretty chill and also I genuinely enjoy talking to other people; It makes me really happy.

    Anyway, my question is: what jobs are there where I can apply and develop my people skills? I'd like to be able to do something interesting and put my skills to use and help out other people all suggestions are appreciated

    Retail is probably the best start. You'll be able to learn how to talk to customers. It might not be interesting, but it's easiest to get a job in this area with no experience.

    Have you thought about volunteering/working for a charity? You can work at a school, or with a community, which will definitely help your people skills. You'll also be helping people in need as well!
