That is a little bit of help, thank you. Have been looking at a 'sales training programme' for a bank, not sure if I'd be dealing with general public or not but I guess when I was thinking of sales, I kinda knew I wanted to go the corporate approach, if possible. I worked selling paintings in an art gallery, yes it sucks the commission is gay and to be honest its boring. Theres just no job satisfaction.@Dannyell - Sales with the general public isn't any fun and even if it has commission, isn't very high. However, if you see a sales job that is business to business, it's much better. It might say experience necessary, but just find a way to talk to the person hiring and sell why you would be a good fit for the job. Consider it your first sales assignment, getting the job.
Aviation, I'd look into getting experience or knowledge in transportation to start with. I would avoid having to deal with actual passengers. That's general public and the general public suck. I got into aviation via having transportation background and working in the estimating department with a parts manufacturer for military use. Things like the turret on a tank. Go between administrator between departments and clients. Required good communication skills, good maths skills, basic Cadkey and excellent Microsoft office. I've found there's often openings where office and people skills combined with basic understanding of mechanics. It would seem those three combined are a little difficult to find.
Not sure if that's any help.
I suspect a bank wouldn't be more exciting, but experience and training in sales would make it easier to apply for corporate sales. Even just one year straight on a resume is something. Even then, corporate sales you'd need to check how busy/fun the job was.That is a little bit of help, thank you.

Its really hard work as I am a type 3 as well so this stuff really means way too much to me.
I've never seen an intern made to clean the toilet before. Did you tell your teacher about this?Well right now at my office intern job my favorite part of the day is when I get to clean the toilet. So I am hoping I get something in retail soon, even if it sucks, because anything beats the repetitive, mind numbing, life sucking tasks that I've been doing for the last three years. I felt more productive and energized after being screamed at on the phone by a furious client, (and actually feeling like I had handled it well,) than I did doing my job all week. I'm curious, what do all you successful people think I should do to get hired at 18 with a high school diploma?
