    Currently studying A-Levels and just find them incredibly boring but I knew I wouldn't enjoy them, I chose them anyway as all the other options weren't any appealing either. I've searched for a long time, done loads of "quizes" and went to job counselling but still no job has catched my eye. I think if I had a job I wanted to pursue it would make it easier to do my A-levels. I don't think there is a solution to my problem but I can dream.

    There are jobs beyond the typical ones reccomended by those career quizzes- I'm a Policy Intern for example. Also I think you are starting from the wrong point, you need to think about what interests you and then you can see what jobs encompass that, rather than trying to start with the job.

    You don't have to do something related to your a levels, so start more broadly; what do you enjoy, in general?

    The situation you describe is very normal. Honestly, these things come with time. Maybe there is an evening course at a local college that inspires your interest.
