jobs for introvertsDo you avoid all work -related social interactions but hope to find ideal jobs for introverts?

If that’s you, then you need to read this post. 

Today, I am going to share perfect jobs for introverts who want to work alone and earn money from home.

It’s true; as an introvert you face a lot of situations where you are either not in the right kind of job or struggling to network with colleagues or having trouble landing any job.

These are the common woes of introverts who want to start a career or look for ways to make money.

According to this survey, extroverts tend to earn more money than introverts for obvious reasons. If you have ever worked in an office as an introvert, you will know how easily extroverted employees take the lead and get better pay.

But not all hope is lost for people who want to work alone.

There are many low-stress jobs that can be done flexibly from home and give you a good income. Most importantly the fact that you’re an introvert will have no effect on your ability to do these jobs.

Are there any good paying careers for introverts?

Sure, there are many jobs for introverts. They might not be your “traditional” jobs, but there are many options if you want to work alone, like blogging or freelance writing.

How should I search for jobs for introverts?

Though there are many jobs available for introverts if you are just starting, stay away from customer-facing roles like customer rep or customer champion, etc. You can look for work as a chat agent, where most of the work gets done online. Always read the job description carefully to see if it mentions being on the phone or communicating with clients.

Jobs that let you to work around your schedule with minimal networking can be ideal for you like search engine evaluation.

 

Ideal Jobs for Introverts Who Want to Work Alone

 

Blogger

Blogging can be a great choice if you love working by yourself with minimal human interaction. I say minimal because you will be connecting with your readers, which could be over email or social media. Blogging is a top choice for introverts to make money online because it’s an online business where you are your own boss.

I am an introvert by nature, but blogging gave me a great channel to communicate with my readers and help them with their struggles. This has been the most satisfying and profitable business for me where I am earning more than a full-time income, in spite of being an introvert.

Just find out what your passions and interests are, write articles about them and finally start a blog. That’s the starting step to earning money blogging.

Writer

Did you know that J.K Rowling is an introvert? She is the woman behind Harry Potter, a super successful writer, and an introvert. Writing is a creative skill that is often best suited to people who like to work alone. As a freelance writer, you can write for many mediums, become a staff writer or start your own freelance writing business.

Whichever option you choose, writing can be very fulfilling and can give you the chance to work in your own time without much social interaction. In fact, many successful writers reached the peak in their careers when they worked in solitude.

This could be your calling if you are the creative type.

 

Pet Carer

Love spending time with pets but not a people person? You might have the right skills to earn money with no human interaction. As a pet carer, you can take care of the furries, have fun, and still have a way to make money. Caring for pets is an excellent choice for someone who loves pets and can do this as a side gig.

Rover is the most popular choice for anyone who loves dogs. You can choose your own timings and have a flexible schedule.

 

Freelance Photographer

If you are a shutterbug like me and love to work in your own time exploring your creative side, then try becoming a photographer. Over the years of learning and practicing, I have come to  understand that this skill can be entirely self-taught, though there are incredible resources to help you learn photography.

You can start your own photography business in whichever niche you choose or apply to companies like Shutterstock that have openings for photographers occasionally.

As a freelance photographer, you have many ways to earn money like selling your prints, listing your photos on stock websites, etc. I genuinely believe that you can do great in this introvert job if you love photography.

 

Proofreader

Proofreading is another ideal job you can take up if you love working by yourself. To become a proofreader, you need to have a keen eye for detail, have a good command of the English language, be able to spot the mistakes in grammar, spelling and punctuation, check documents for any errors.

Though some of the companies that hire proofreaders require a related degree for this job, it’s not mandatory. There are many companies like CACTUS, Scribendi, ProofreadingServices.com, etc. that have relevant openings for proofreader positions.

You can also work directly with publishing houses, self-publishing authors, bloggers, businesses, etc. Anyone who publishes content needs a proofreader!

Proofreading is a perfect job for people who want to work online autonomously. If this is something that you would consider doing then register for this FREE workshop to learn about starting a proofreading business. 

 

Translator

Translation is a very in-demand job for people who are bilingual or know more than one language, and it is also the right choice for someone who is not a people person. Translators or interpreters work for companies like LanguageLine, VerbalizeIt, Gengo, etc.

For many of these companies, you need to pass a test to prove your translation skills and the work is entirely flexible. It can be helpful to get much better pay or more opportunities if you have certifications related to your languages.

 

Passive Income Jobs for Introverts Who Want to Make Money

 

Rent Your Car

Being an introvert does not mean you cannot earn money. It can be as simple as renting your car. If you don’t use your car much, you can rent it on websites like Turo and Getaround. The most significant advantage of this peer-to-peer car renting marketplace is you get $1,000,000 insurance and 24/7 roadside assistance. So no worries about handing over your car to strangers.

You just have to list your car giving all the details including when it’s available for lease. All the handing over will be done through the Turo and Getaround apps, so there is no need for you to communicate with the person. Great passive income gig if you are an introvert!

 

Use Your Computer

Here is another “no work needed” gig if you are on your computer a lot. If you work online and need to do most of your work on your laptop, just use the Nielsen App and earn $50 a year in passive income. This app is backed by the legit Nielsen company that is a leader in market research. Your personal data is not recorded, so there’s no need to be concerned about privacy. 

You just need to download the app and do your usual work.  As long as the app is running, you will earn free money.

 

Finding legitimate and good paying jobs from home can be hard especially if you are an introvert. Just be open to new areas of working and be ready to learn new skills to find the right job for you. In fact, there are many creative jobs that are especially suited for introverts. 

 

Just believe in yourself and find the right job!
