Are you an introvert?
While it’s such a thrilling opportunity for some people, introverts would only imagine it as a nightmare. They are more productive while working alone or with small groups and jobs that involve crowds might be intimidating.
The good news, though, is that there are also great job opportunities for introverts. Here are a few of them:
1. Anything IT
Most IT experts spend most of their time with computers and other machines. The only time they may have to interact with people is when they are called upon to fix a certain technical hitch. This job gives introverts their time alone and allows them to concentrate on their projects.
2. Blogging/online writing
Blogging requires maximum concentration and distraction is the last thing one would want when they are trying to come up with a new topic or chapter for their book. And since introverts enjoy their lone company, blogging and writing jobs are ideal for them.
3. Creative jobs
Introverts are creatives by nature. When they are alone, they are able to come up with great ideas for their next piece of art without much struggle. So anything to do with drawing, painting, sketching, ceramics, or animation would be perfect for an introvert.
4. Interior designer
One will only have to deal with a handful of clients or a single client at a time. Most of their time is spent working on projects and trying out new samples.
5. Animal care
If you dislike social places, then dealing with animals might be ideal for you. You work with animals all day long and if you want someone to listen to you, the animals will-and they will also keep your secret. So you can be a vet, animal trainer or zoologist.
An introvert has an eye for details and would thus make great detectives. They spend hours in a closed room digging deeper into documents in search for evidence.
As an engineer, you will only have to use your skills to come up with solutions and you will hardly have to deal with a lot of people. At times, you will be at the field with only a few colleagues or clients.
8. Social media management
Thanks to technology, you can reach out to millions of people without having to address them physically. You interact with clients on social media and you don’t have to meet new people.
Just being there to listen to someone and help them get a solution to a problem is in itself rewarding. Introverts are patient, good listeners and can make great counsellors. And the good thing is that they only have to deal with a single client or a small group of people at a time.
