What Jobs can I work as Exposure Therapy against Social Anxiety?

I thought about doing a part-time job in a clothing store, but there surely must be more effective jobs. Where you have to talk on a personal level with complete strangers.
Any tips?

Any sales job would be great exposure therapy. Or any customer service job where you have to deal with the public. Call center job would be good if you have anxiety talking over the phone

Social services jobs let you talk on personal level and work with people at difficult times in their lives.

Call centers as well. They're easy to get jobs in because of high turn over, and it'll get you used to using a phone (idk if you have phone anxiety but loads of SA people seem to hate the phone).

If you want to be beat down relentlessly by rude strangers, can't beat fast food. Do that for a few years and see if you still think "exposure therapy" helps.
