How difficult is it to get a job like this?

I'm looking for some inspiration for my fiance as far as a job goes. He has no idea what he wants to do for a career. Right now, he's been working as a dishwasher / prep cook (for a few years now) and absolutely hates it! Gaming is his biggest hobby, he can't stand math or repetitive, boring jobs. He has a High School diploma, but no college degree. Any ideas for something he should look for? We were thinking about tech support, customer service, or something along those lines, as he's the friendliest person I know and has amazing social skills. Is getting a job like this hard to get for someone without a college degree or much experience though? Something that makes good money as well, of course. We've both been working in random "just-above-minimum-wage" jobs, so we don't really know what to look for, what's hard to get/not hard to get, etcetera. So any help, ideas or advice would be much appreciated. If it's relevant at all, we're going to be living in the San Francisco Bay Area in California (around the area of Sunnyvale). Also, he's looking for something more than being a waiter and whatnot. Every job he's had has been in a restaurant - he wants to go for something completely different, and something that's more of a career, rather than just a job. =)

If he really has good social skills, he should look for a job as a waiter. My friend's brother was a waiter while going to college and he said that he would make around $100 a day because of the amount of tips that he would get.
