I turn 18 in January and i have still yet to have found any sort of job, it's not that i don't want one because the money would be amazing but i've just never really had the confidence to apply anywhere. I worry over literally everything so when it comes to an environment i am unfamiliar with people i don't know, it makes me feel ever so uncomfortable and that's whats stopped me from ever trying to find somewhere to work. Plus i'm super shy so i feel like i'd need to sort out how i am around new people before i start diving into something completely new.
As i was saying, as i'm approaching 18 i talked to my local pubs owners last night, and told them about how i'm nearly legal to work behind a bar and if there was any sort of jobs going there. I've been going to this bar around 10 years now, so the environment is never strange and i literally know the names of everyone who goes in there (i'm good with names though). So i felt like it was a really good chance for me to find a job and also this could help with my confidence and hopefully bring me out of my shell a bit more. So i asked, hoping for something positive and i've spoke to both owners now and they said they'll train me up to become a bar staff so i'm really excited about this news! But also very nervous because even though i know how to pull pints, there's a lot more to being bar staff than just doing that. But i literally love the owners both to bits so i'm gonna feel really comfortable working there, the bonus is i'm getting paid for doing it!
So wish me luck when i start training, and hopefully i'll be a barmaid in the next few months!
