You can apply for as many as jobs as you like as long as the company allow you to do.
Yes, you can apply to be bar staff before you are 18. Depending on your skills and attitude they may even employ you to help behind the scenes, as a waiter, or offer you training in advance of your birthday. Of course the employer will need to work within the law so you will not be able to sell alcohol until you are over 18, and there are other concerns such as health and safety and late working hours that they will need to take into consideration, but if you convey the right working attitude from day one you will be on a better footing to find the job that you want.
I notice that you posted this a long time ago and you have probably found some answers yourself, but I thought I would write my response in case it is helpful for someone else… I expect the reason you haven't had a response until now is because it's such a big question, and really only you can answer it.
The first task in a career search is identifying your strengths and weaknesses, and what you enjoy and don't enjoy. You seem to have done this yourself and have put this into the text above. Based on this and your experience as a Data Analyst perhaps you should continue in Data Science. It is currently a quickly growing sector and many companies are looking for competent staff to move into management positions. Alternatively a Graduate Scheme offered by many large companies would be a good start allowing experience in a wide variety of posts to help you recognise what you enjoy doing. Or perhaps you should consider working for yourself. If you can create something, perhaps an App, which solves a problem then maybe you can be an entrepreneur.
Always remember that whatever career you jump into, it doesn't have to be what you stick with forever. You may decide that in just a few months or even decades something else appeals. It won't be the end of the world to change again.

That’s precisely why I tell my high school students to talk to the people in the jobs they want and find out from them what specific education is required to get hired. Too many people get an education thinking that it will get them a job, only to find out that the education they got only helped fill empty university seats.January 10, 2017 at 10:04 am in reply to: What types of careers can I get with these educations? #36201
You might try going to Monster.com or CareerBuilder.com and putting in those terms… to see what comes up. In my career searches, I’ve used the keyword search on those sites to see what came up. That will call up any listings where those terms are used… not just in the title, but anywhere in the description. Don’t limit the search area to your locale… let it just bring up whatever it can.
You can scan through these listings and see what fields are calling for people with your experience, and see what interests you. For example, using “web design” in a keyword search won’t only bring up IT postings, but job postings from other areas like nonprofits, hospitals, malls, etc… anyone that’s needing a web designer. As you find postings that catch your attention, make a note of them or, better yet, print them out. Then, figure out what it is about those positions that appeals to you. This might help you figure out where you want to direct your energies and apply your skills and degrees.
You may have heard about career counsellors suggesting you look through the classifieds in newspapers and circling any job posting that appeals to you… regardless of whether or not you have the necessary skills… as an exercise in identifying your interests. Going to the online job sites and doing keyword searches is essentially the same thing, just on a larger scale.January 10, 2017 at 10:02 am in reply to: Can certifications / experience take the place of a degree? #36199
Experience can come handy. Certification may not bring that much value if you are a fresher.
It’s kinda hard to offer advice on this – IT is a large area! Smile So I think I’ll throw off some ideas and you can point out any the interest you and we can take it from there.
Working with spreadsheets; office applications
Teaching / training IT
Copywriting (writing content)
IT support / helpdesk
There’s tonnes of other areas, but those are what I can think of right now! Wink
Ideally, you should be looking at what other areas you enjoy and trying to relate that with an area of IT. For example you said you enjoy typing – that could lead on to administration type roles or onto content / article / report writing, both of which are very different and require different skills and experience.
