Social?
Social 
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

  Hint: McDonald's
McDonald's were advertising franchising opportunities on their tray liners, so I called them and asked for the relevant forms which I filled out and sent back. I was interviewed and offered a one week 'on the job experience' to see if, after that, I would like to continue with my application. It also gave McDonald's the opportunity to see if I'd be a good fit for them.

I completed the week and was requested to write a detailed description of my experiences. I was then interviewed with my partner by a panel of McDonald's senior managers and we were told on the same day that I had been accepted on the Registered Applicants program.
