    So, I will in the future need to create a good cv for work and college etc, however, although I am still a while off, I have literally nothing to put on it. I play for a football/ soccer team and have had multiple awards for it but apart from that I have nothing. No experiences, no hobbies, nothing. I haven't donw my GCSE finals yet so I have no results but at the moment they aren't looking good for me. I would go out and get some experiences but I'm too shy and embarrassed to do it and it would make me feel too uncomfortable. Please help.

    You have more than your realise. Don't worry about it, everyone has to start somewhere. You'll likely want to write a skill based cv due to your limited experience. Try looking at this article for some advice on what to include.

    Do some voluntary work, it's really useful for your CV and gives you a lot of experience. Look at charity shops, they're always looking for volunteers. You could also look at animal shelters and museums.

    It can be difficult if you're shy. I was very shy when I started volunteering at a museum but it really helped me before more confident. If you're wanting to apply for paid jobs, then doing some voluntary work and building up your confidence will really help you at the interview stage. For voluntary positions they rarely interview, I know mine was just a brief chat about what I would be doing. It's a good step into a paid job, you can choose how many hours you do a lot of the time, perhaps even one afternoon a week, and you do not need a proper CV for them.
