    I'm 18 and still in college, but really need a job. Trouble is I'm really shy and talking to people makes me panic like mad. I also have no real experience or previous jobs, so my CV looks very empty. After many attempts I eventually managed to get a job at McDonald's and had my first shift yesterday. I was put straight up front and very quickly found out that I wasn't ready for it. Within the first half hour I was convinced that I was not going back. I very nearly walked out in my break. I've got more shifts on the weekend, but really don't want this job. The problem is, I really don't know what jobs are available that aren't retail/customer based. I've tried looking for warehouse jobs and data entry but can't find any part-time.

    If any body has any advice I'd be really thankful, as I'm slightly freaking out right now 🙃

    I'm in the same exact position. Cannot find jobs that are good for social anxiety. Been looking for a job for a year now, my problem is not being able to go to the interview though, I freak out.
