I'm looking at summer internships or maybe a year placement (hopefully abroad) but I have no idea what career I want to go into after I graduate (I'm in my 2nd year).

I was thinking maybe marketing but I'm not creative, or human resources but I'm very shy and like independent work. So I'm finding it hard choosing what kind of placement to get.

Advice?

What are you studying and why did you choose it? Seems like a good place to start from.

The internship can also be viewed as a testdrive for a particular career. It can be a good thing even if you find you don't enjoy the work, because then at least you can rule out that particular career for now.

Marketing doesn't have to be creative as such. There's research roles, strategy roles, client management roles, all sorts. Good internships will move you around the business anyway so you can experience those different roles.

Have you looked at schemes from the big marketing agencies such as WPP?

I'm studying psychology but I don't enjoy it much. I choose it because at the time I found it relatively interesting and it kept my options open in terms of career prospects.
