“If you are good with numbers and financial records, you might be interested in being an at-home bookkeeper,” says Kumar.

“Even though it might sound counterintuitive since it’s technically a ‘social’ job, as the name implies, introverts actually possess a very high social intelligence,” says Darko Jacimovic, cofounder of WhatToBecome.com. “The job description consists of planning and deploying social media marketing campaigns and strategy. Knowing how to write clever copy and content that is engaging to your target audience is also important. Introverts tend to express themselves better through writing as opposed to direct communication, so I think it’s a perfect fit.”
Michael Tomaszewski, a career and workplace expert at Zety, says, “A researcher role is a godsend job, as it taps into an introvert’s two key strengths: written communication and a plethora of solo work. Unlike extroverted researchers who find it difficult to concentrate on repetitive tasks and follow set procedures, introverts can flip the switch and become laser-sharp focused for as long as needed to solve the task at hand. As a cherry on top, researchers are sought after in pretty much any industry, which allows for a smooth transition from an existing career.”
