Careers for Introverted People

Introverted and not sure what to study after school? No need to worry! We’ve compiled a bunch of careers in this article suitable for any introvert!

Introverted people aren’t all soft-spoken and shy. Some people can actually form solid relationships, but still prefer to not put as much effort into social interactions. Whether you’re an introvert ‘type one’ or ‘type two’, we’ve got a couple of career suggestions for any type of introvert!

5 Best Careers for Introverted People 

Just because you’re an introvert doesn’t mean you’re limited to a certain group of careers. We’ve compiled these careers to make your life a little easier, just in case you’re a very shy individual. If you really don’t like people, here are five careers for you:

Architect

As an architect, you will be spending some time with clients. An architect spends a lot of time planning and designing buildings. For people who possess both creative and problem-solving skills, a career in architecture might be something to consider. 

Writer 

Instead of actually talking, writing speaks for the writer. If you’re independent and enjoy time alone, writing could be the career you’re looking for. In many cases, you don’t need any degrees or qualifications to become a writer. It’s a craft you can perfect with practice! 

Librarian 

Libraries are quiet places, so it makes sense that an introvert would be attracted there. A librarian would be in charge of collecting and issuing books, films, and so on. They can work in regular libraries, schools, or even museums. 

Graphic Designer 

In order to be a successful graphic designer, you have to have an impressive portfolio to show. Graphic designers are perfect examples of artists who can work independently. In this career field, people’s personalities can vary. Some can be very outgoing while others aren’t. 

Accountant 

For people who like to work alone and who really aren’t outgoing, being an accountant is the perfect career choice. If you’re the ultimate introvert (and that’s so not a bad thing) who’s good with numbers, take a look at our CIMA, and NATED courses!
