Don't worry, you'll find something. It may not be your dream job and it may not be right away, but there are definitely lots of jobs out there.
What are you hoping to do?

Why hope to do anything if you won’t get it. If I have to answer data analysis or finance or something like that. I’m just so disheartened because I’ve never had a job before and I’m rubbish at interviews.
I wouldn’t mind doing primary school teaching either.

Can you get a part time job to build your confidence and practise an interview?
It will be beneficial if future employers can see that you have had experience in any job before, even if it's not relevant to what you want to do.

Trying to get a part time job thankfully I got through to an interview but that was it.

You know physics. Become the next Elon Musk. You should start a business.

I think what that mean is that you may not get your dream job straight away, but work at it and you will get there. You may have to take a job that's not quite your dream job to start with while you work at it.

There's a careers service at your Uni, get down there and learn how to use it.
