Also it is a great role that can utilize the strengths of Introverts like detail orientation, analytical thinking and big picture perspective.
6). Anything in IT
With the boom in the digital technology sector, there are a lot of jobs for techies like systems administrator, software engineer, and data analyst or web developer.
Not only are these careers lucrative in terms of pay but they also provide an opportunity for introverts to utilize their creative problem skills and build something from grounds up.
7). Social Media Marketing and Brand Strategists
In today’s digital world, it’s impossible for a business to thrive without social media presence and therefore the demand for social media marketing professionals and brand strategists has risen exponentially.
Introverts are a great choice for SMM roles as they are very good with pictures and words and storytelling. They are also great at brand strategy because they can easily understand the target audience due to their deep listening skills and empathy.
It’s easy to start a career in Social Media marketing by getting a certification or getting hands on experience on your own.
It is also a great skill to learn to promote one’s own brand if you are a freelancer or entrepreneur.
So, this skill can help Introverts to pursue their own passion while building a career.
Since Introverts have a deep need to find meaning in their work, they thrive in professions that require serving others.
For Introverts there is no greater satisfaction than helping others and making a difference in someone’s life.
Counseling is a great profession for Introverts because it fulfills their need of finding meaning and purpose in their work by helping others and also utilizes their skills of deep listening and empathy to the fullest.
9) Anything outdoor or in nature
Introverts like to spend a lot of time in quiet contemplation and therefore they love being in nature.
Any job in outdoors that requires one to be in nature like a forest ranger, botanist, and landscaper is a great choice for Introverts because being surrounded by nature is very soothing and calming for Introverts.
10) Animal Care Specialist
Introverts also like to spend time with animals and find it highly rewarding and satisfying.
There are a lot of jobs at animal shelters, zoos or vet offices that can suit Introverts as they require little social interactions.
Although not very lucrative but these jobs can become a great side hustle for Introverts.
11) Whatever you’re passionate about
And here’s the big one. Just because we are Introverts doesn’t mean we can’t excel at whatever we set our minds to.
There are tons of Introverts who are rocking as CEO’s and entrepreneurs, HR leaders and the list is endless.
This one personality trait should not restrict you from following your passion and excelling at it.
Infact knowing our personality type is only an aid because it helps us to chalk out our career path in a way that we can blossom into our highest potential.
So, if you’re an introvert, you should learn to respect and embrace the gifts that come with being an Introvert and follow your passion with no holds barred.
