12 Best Remote Jobs for Introverts

Whether extrovert or introvert, certain jobs are better than others for both personalities. 

And the great news is that there are many jobs for the introverted personality type, just as there are for the extrovert. 

I identify as an introvert and have all my life. I find it to be my superpower. If I’m in the right environment, I excel as an employee and business owner. Depending on the work environment, I love to work.

Some introverts can still excel in the in-person workplace, even surrounded by extroverts, work parties, and workplace gossip. That said, the more I get to know myself as an introvert and connect with fellow introverts, the more I see our need for solitude and quiet while working. 

In this article, we’ll discuss the best career paths, workplaces, and jobs for introverts.

Best Workplace Types for Introverts

If you want to limit your social interactions, I recommend a fully remote job that you can work from home or on the road. But that isn’t the only career option suitable for an introverted personality. 

Let’s explore good workplace options for introverts:

  • Fully remote
  • Hybrid (few days at home, couple in office)
  • Freelance
  • Flex jobs like work sharing 
  • Entrepreneur 

Fully Remote Jobs: These jobs are precisely what they sound like—jobs worked 100% from your home office. 

Hybrid Jobs: These jobs are typically mostly at home with a couple of days in the office.

Freelancing Jobs: These gigs are typically worked from home or wherever you have internet access.

Flex Jobs: Similar to hybrid, this type of job may not have as much structure with which hours are worked at home and in the office, but the goal is quite the same in that you can work part of the job from home. 

In addition to these flexible positions that allow for some type of work in the home, you could seek out quieter and more solitary career options so that when you do work in the office, it’s the type of environment you’d like. 

Entrepreneur: Being your own boss can be a great option for many introverts as this gives you ultimate control over your schedule, your tasks, and how much you interact with the general public on a daily basis. 

Best Remote Jobs for Introverts

Let’s chat about remote job options! 

First, yes, working from home is 100% legitimate. There seem to be more and more companies hopping aboard the remote train nowadays than ever before. 

Yes, you will find a scam here or there, so you need to be careful, but the jobs listed on reputable sites are mostly legitimate.

There is even a website devoted solely to flexible jobs, which happens to be named FlexJobs. For a reasonable fee, you’ll have access to a database full of people looking to hire remote workers. You don’t need to pay to access job ads, but if you want a one-stop shop, this could be a good idea for you. 

Another great option for locating remote jobs is LinkedIn. If you don’t have a profile, get over there and put one together; it’s great for job seekers. I’ve written a how-to article about setting up your LinkedIn profile if you’d like to read that here. 

Now that we have some details out of the way, how about we get into the fun part: the jobs for introverts!
