Jobs for a introvert with social anxiety.
Anyone have any job recommendations for someone who is bad around strangers and likes to be by himself? Hard to find these days. I thought abut driving for Lyft or Uber but idk how I'd handle that.

RE: Jobs for a introvert with social anxiety.
Maybe something with computers? Or a night auditor? Or an overnight counselor? Maybe a psychologist, where you are only dealing with one or two people at a time? A work at home position of some sort? A dog walker or professional house sitter. A writer? An archivist? Some type of repair person--electrician, plumber etc. where you are only dealing with a few people at once and dealing mostly with fixing things. An occupational therapist (again only dealing with one person at a time). Truck driver?

Ok relax a second.

Most of those require either a degree or previous experience. I would love to work at home but it's difficult to find something I could do at home.

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

The downside -- a good share of the lighthouse keepers died from mercury poisoning..... The light mechanism floated on a pool of mercury making it a near frictionless bearing...

Worth it for the view and lack of other people

Okay didn't know you didn't want to get a degree. Truck driver doesn't require a degree, just a truck driving school. Electrician or plumber would be at a trade school. Sometimes you gotta put a little effort in to get what you want. It would be great if things just fell into our lap, but unfortunately it doesn't always work that way Wink

Commercial cleaning. It's always in demand, and you typically work while the business/school/company/etc is closed to the public (except of course Hospital cleaning).

If I wanted to get a degree I would be getting one by now lol and no of course not but it just sucks most of the work that doesn't require some type of degree or experience is work requiring a lot of social interaction like fast food.

Tried at a few places, especially the local movie theater(employees get free tickets) but so far nothing has panned out
