    This is supposed to be a country with equality of opportunity...go for any damn job u want. How about bricklaying? If you encounter continual barriers, sue and retire at 18. <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    Sorry, but you can do whatever you want, if you want to learn a trade ask at your local training & employment agency what options are available.

    Don't worry, very few people know what they want at 16.

    Kaz is right there shouldn't be jobs for girls and jobs for boy's just do what you want to do and if it happens to be largely males doing it then go show them that a female can do it just as good if not better!!

    When I was younger I was a bit of a tom boy and wanted to be a mechanic but my Mum & Dad put me right off the idea going on about it being a blokes job and so I would never get a job.
    Looking back now I wish I hadnt listened because I now spend my days sat behind a desk doing a nice little office job and Im bored shitless!!!

    Hey Miss P, I'm also stuck in office hell, which is why I'm usually here during the day.

    Bebe, what do you want to do?? What are you vaguely interested in and what do you definately not want to do?? The wonderful world of office BS, outdoor labouring, service jobs, technical, professional or what??

    cheers everyone for replying, i dont really want to do labouring work, or get hassle, i want a job that i could maybe start of with a small wage and work my way up, to maybe become a manager or supervisor maybe, cheers for the advice, does anyone know a website or centre in particular i could go to?

    There's probably a careers advice centre in your town. You could go there for a chat. Maybe a modern aprentiship (sp) would suit you. I hear they are suposed to be quite good and it also alows you to carry on with studying incase you change your mind or need to as part of the job you choose.

    Good Luck

    ditto to miss P
    but I also think you should read these: http://www.thesite.org/careers/job/whats_your_perfect_job.html
    http://www.thesite.org/careers/job/moving_on_up.html

    You could also try doing a TEC
    Training and Enterprise Councils (TECs)

    Your local TEC runs many business training courses for people of all ages. Here you can learn new skills to improve your job prospects, or even help in starting your own business. TECs also offer free advisory and counselling services.


    But mainly I'd recommend going to your careers centre for a chat

    Good Luck
