Thinking about getting a summer job?

Hello fellow people I'm currently considering getting a summer job I'm 17 and school is letting out in a week, however the only thing is that my social anxiety holds me back from getting a job due to the fear of having to interact with customers. My goal is to find a job that has little social interaction, does anyone have any suggestions?

Retail baby!!
Cafes are good for about everyone. Beyond that it depends on your interests. Do you like snow gear? Try a shop. Do you like clothes? Work at a store. Do you like books? Try a bookstore.

Also, maybe not retail!
Look at some job portals online, I remember someone telling me when I was young that I'd be surprised at how many young people take jobs with little experience value when they could be working in an office already, obviously as a clerk or something. If you want more office interaction (though I don't think you'll get as much interaction as with retail) then look online for this sort of opening.

I think that is a fantastic goal (if you put off your first job for too many years it gets way harder) - I hope you don't get discouraged. It may take some time to get used to the process and to land one, but you'll get one, you're already overqualified for a lot of those things.

Good luck!
