Not a people person? Well, there are jobs out there for introverts who don’t want to deal with people at work on a regular basis. Obviously, you’ll need to interact with an interviewer when finding a job, but that’s something that can be overcome. Below, we list the best jobs for people who hate people.
The Best Jobs For Introverts
There are plenty of art-related jobs that don’t involve having to interact with people. You could create your own drawings, paintings, and pottery, and sell them on websites like Etsy. People will sometimes pay big bucks to have customized and unique art pieces. Graphic design is also an option, which is a highly sought after job field today. Plus, you can usually create graphic designs from the comfort of your own home.
Accountants crunch the numbers. The only time they have to deal with people is during the initial and final consultations, and tax season. ZipBooks and other online bookkeeping services typically allow accountants to work remotely. You could also look for online bookkeeping jobs on listing sites like Indeed.
Landscapers and gardeners keep to themselves, creating works of art and beautiful yards for their customers. Enjoy the scenery, pick out colorful flowers, and transform hedges into art pieces. Not only does this job not involve regularly interacting with people, but it’s also a good way to relax.
Using two little-known inventions called the computer and the internet, you can easily be a freelance writer and work from home. Using services such as Fiverr, Upwork, and ProBlogger, you can list your blogging services and search for paid blogging opportunities. Or you could start your own blog and build it up to the point of making revenue through sponsorships, ads, and paid posts.
Being a researcher and finding/verifying facts and other information doesn’t usually require you to deal with other people. If you search “remote researcher jobs” on Google, you will find many remote job opportunities with a reasonable salary. However, each job may require some prior experience in researching, so make sure to check that before applying.
7. Video Editor
Being a video editor is a very high sought after job, since most forms of entertainment involve video. This includes YouTube videos, social media ads, TV commercials, movies, and more. The only interaction video editing involves is if you need to communicate with project heads. Before looking for this job type, make sure you know how to use the latest video editing software.
8. App & Software Developers
App and/or software development is where it’s at today. New apps are coming out everyday that can turn into an instant viral sensation. There are many companies who also look for talented software developers who can improve upon their current products or provide ideas for new products. Developers usually don’t interact with people much except when it comes to creating concepts and presenting final products.
9. Animal Care
If you are an antisocial person but are okay with being around animals, a job in animal care may be good for you. You could be a dog walker or boards dogs at your home (if possible). These two jobs involve minimal interaction with people that is in your control.
10. Social Media Manager
I bet I know what you’re thinking. How can a social media job not be social? Well, being a social media manager doesn’t usually involve interacting face-to-face with people. Usually, you just have to come up with social media campaigns, create content (photos, videos, GIFS, etc.), and interact with customers through messaging. Most communications as part of this job involve messaging and email.
