So i have applied for my first job

Hey guys, did alot today in my life, have sat around at the same course for 2 years doing qualifcations. got my maths and english then was gonna go to a college but i was kinda afraid so i stayed on and did another course which i dont really like at all, so today i applied with a friend for the same course to do with him at this new college :) and i also applied for my first job in a call centre... gonna be pretty boring work but i guess its money at the end of the day.
 
im kinda nervous as im really shy and afraid to do things on my own hence applying with my friend, im kinda nervous about going for this aptitude test and interview at the call centre if i get in and im really bricking it.. im always paranoid and self concious about things liek these and go over and over them in my head :( any words of wisdom?
 
i know everyone has to do things they dont like on their on at some stage but its hard like...
 
so anyone got any advice? thanks alot

    Heres the best advice I can  offer. You are clearly shy. Go at this job like a bull in a china shop and use it as an excuse to find your feet. You may find your feet and continue working there, if not you will be more developed to handle these situations in future. Everything is foreign to all of us until we immerse ourselves in it. its the only way. Grow a set and go for it. its part of life! :-) and stop getting your friend to help you it isnt doing you any favours

    consider this, everyone of them 1500 also had a first day.
    Suck it up and get stuck in.

    Some of the best advice you'll get for an interview.

    Guys, let's not turn this into a re-run of every other thread posted by Colin over the past couple of weeks.
     
    So some of you think he's a troll - we have a policy on MT of 'not feeding trolls', therefore if that is your belief, don't post in his threads and encourage him. That is of course, IF Colin is a troll.
     
    Other people appear to get p1ssed off with some of the topics and subject matter Colin is posting - again, if you fall into this category, don't post in his threads.
     
    For the rest of you that can offer Colin some constructive advice, great, please do.
     
    However, for the p1ss takers and those that fall into the above two categories, please take this as a warning - I'm getting tired of seeing this sh1t, it doesn't look good and it's not entertaining, so please stop.
     
    Thanking you kindly.
     
    @ Colin - good luck with the interview  / job.
