The best jobs for introverts who want to work from home


As an introvert, I’ve often had to deal with the idea that my personality makes me less fit for certain jobs. In reality, there are many jobs out there that are great for people like us. The key is to find the right job in your field that you can do from home, and we’ll help you do that.

Service to customers

Customer service jobs are good for shy people because they allow them to work from home and make their own hours. And if you want a job where you don’t have to be in the office all day, customer service is a great option.

That’s because it’s one of the most flexible jobs out there. You can work nights or weekends if your plan allows, as long as you make sure customers can get help when they need it. So, if you like to be at home in the mornings but have to leave early on Tuesdays for yoga class, there will still be someone available at those times.


If you’re shy and love to write, this is a great way to make a living. A lot of the work is self-directed, and it can be done from anywhere in the world, which is great for people who want to work from home. You can also set your own hours, which makes it easy to mix work with other things in your life.

There are many different kinds of writing jobs, such as blog posts, articles, or books, content for social media, web copy (the text on a website that helps people find their way around), technical writing like user guides or product descriptions, marketing materials like whitepapers or ebooks, and even writing ads.


Designers are people with a lot of creativity and imagination. Since they like to think about the big picture, they need to be able to work on their own. Designers are also good at doing more than one thing at once because they often work on several projects at once. Introverts might like this job because it gives them time alone without making them feel cut off from their coworkers, clients, or even their own thoughts.


Blogs are a great way to share your ideas and thoughts. You can write a blog about anything you like, like beauty, travel, technology, or anything else. You don’t even need to know much about blogging; there are many sites where you can start a blog for free (and some where it costs money). You just need a thought and the desire to tell other people about it.

You will also have full power over what goes on your website. No one else will be able to tell you what is good enough to post. This means that if there are some topics or areas of expertise that only one person is interested in, but no one else is (like my fascination with ancient civilizations), then those posts will still be released even though they only make sense to me.


Editing is a very important part of writing, and editors’ job is to make sure the writing is clear and easy to understand. They also check the language, spelling, and punctuation, which are all things introverts are good at. As a bonus, you can work as an editor from home!

If you’re interested in this career path but haven’t edited before or haven’t done much editing, there are many chances on sites like Upwork and Freelancer that will let you try out your skills before committing full time.

Data entry

If you like being alone and want to work from home, data entry is a great choice. You can look for jobs online, and there are many different kinds of data entry jobs. Some companies will pay you by the hour, while others may offer fixed-price contracts or other benefits like bonuses based on how well you do your job.

There are a lot of things that can go wrong when you work from home as a data entry expert if you don’t take care of yourself first. Here are some things to keep in mind if you want to work from home:

Make sure your computer has enough RAM (memory) so it doesn’t slow down when working with big files.

Use headphones instead of speakers so that other people can’t hear what you’re listening to when you’re working in public places like coffee shops where people often hang out during their breaks from work. This is especially important if those places have loud music playing all day, which makes it hard to focus because everyone else seems even louder than usual when they talk to each other and laugh loudly for no reason just because it makes them feel good.

Work as a virtual helper

Virtual assistant work is a great way to get started with jobs you can do from home. As an introvert, you’ll be able to stay in your comfort zone as a virtual helper while still making money and getting more experience.

To get a job as a virtual helper, the first thing you need to do is find out which companies hire them. You can do this by checking job boards like FlexJobs or Indeed, or by looking through classified ads on Craigslist, which you can sort by location. Once you’ve found some possible employers, check to see if they’re looking for what you want to do. For example, some companies only hire freelancers who have worked as virtual assistants before.

Once you’ve narrowed down your list of possible companies and applied for jobs at each one, it’s time to start interviewing! During these interviews, keep in mind that communication skills are very important. You’ll need them both when talking with clients over email, phone, or Skype calls and when writing reports based on information from them or other sources, like Google Docs spreadsheets attached directly to emails sent back and forth between parties involved.

Programming and building web sites

Web creation is a great job for shy people because you don’t need to know how to code to do it. In fact, most developers don’t even write their own code; their job is more like editing and creating websites. Web developers can work from home (or anywhere with an internet link), so they can set their own hours and avoid having to deal with a lot of people every day at the office.

Web development jobs are also in high demand right now. There are so many openings in this field that there are thousands of them! As more businesses move online, the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that job opportunities will grow by 11% from 2016 to 2026. This is one field where it shouldn’t be hard to find remote jobs at all.

Introverts can do well when they work from home.

You may have thought if remote work is right for you as an introvert. But the truth is that introverts can do well working from home.

Here are some tips for finding and getting your first job that you can do from home:

Look for companies whose culture fits with your values and the way you are as a person. You can do this by searching for “remote jobs” or “remote-friendly employers,” looking at company websites (if they have them), and reading reviews from former workers on sites like Glassdoor or Indeed.

Instead of talking about how nervous you are, try to find common interests with your interviewer. This will help them see how well-suited their company culture is for introverted people like you. If you can, meet in person so you can see how they react when you talk to them face-to-face. If that’s not possible, use video chat software like Skype so you don’t have to make eye contact all at once!

We hope this list has made you think about working from home. Don’t give up if you’re an introvert who feels like you don’t have many choices. There are many ways that introverts can do well when they work from home, and this list is just one of them. We hope that everyone does well.
