Suitable jobs for people with social anxiety?

For those of you who personally struggle with social anxiety, what jobs have you done or currently do? How long did it take you to feel comfortable at your place of employment? In other words, do you still feel anxious every time you have to go to work or has the anxiety subsided?

I would always get so nervous before going to work. Now I work for home. I am a freelancer writer and I do other things online to make money. I fill out surveys or do small tasks on Amazon mturk. It really helps me out and now I just go out occasionally and am happier with life.

I'm actually seriously considering going down the same path. I'm thinking about getting a freelance writing certificate from the university of Toronto. I know it would be stressful, but the courses sound amazing. Did you go to school or did you just learn the process yourself? I have been making money online doing various things, but I would like to gain the credentials and knowledge to really build a solid living through writing. Also, what do you do on Amazon mturk? I've never heard of it.

Hello,

I have always had social phobia no matter how many in-person jobs I hold onto with relative ease. I still am always very afraid that first day to where I can't sleep the night before and I am always stressed about performing the next day. Freelance writing is a great way to make money at-home and even with some writing samples under your belt you can get some very credible Craigslist freelance positions without college experience. Amazon Turk is a secondary income method where you get micro-tasks like writing short articles for very low pay until you prove yourself to be able to get higher paying jobs. It takes a lot of work and dedication which is why Poostloop is a great tool I've found. In general you should make a job out of finding a freelance job on Craigslist or through another source if you have it and go through the ad posts of big cities to find work that will pay you for your talent. Construct a good resume and have some writing samples ready. If you start to notice that going to school online will help you get into the right jobs go for it but sometimes the person asking only wants to review samples that demonstrate talent.

It takes a lot of dedication and self-discipline to be a freelance anything. It is best to overcome social phobias rather than work around them and work around the clock with micro-tasks that don't pay you well enough for your efforts. However, if you were to overcome social phobia in other formats that self-discipline will really kick-in and you'll soon find yourself at a computer with a wonderful attitude and begin on a very lucrative process that will end up being easy, fun and well-paying.

RE: Suitable jobs for people with social anxiety?

I started out working as a waitress when I was 18 years old. That is what I did up until I could not do it anymore due to the anxiety. I applied for social security disability and was approved a few years later. It was a struggle to go to work a lot of days because I dreaded having to deal with the crowd. I miss working but am so thankful that I have the disability and my husband works. We struggle financially sometimes but I think most people do. I also do online surveys and tasks on mturk. Not very lucrative but it makes me feel productive.

Thank you for the explanation! I've never lacked dedication or self-disciple which is why I think freelance work is a legitimate possibility. I have once again sort of switched paths though and have started working on a screenplay. I went to college for film & television production. The only issue is a lack of income during the writing process. So I still use Postloop and some other online ventures to supplement. It isn't enough to survive on but it helps cover my basic costs. I live at home and have the resources to be able to try this now.

I do surveys as well and it does help me feel productive. I panic when I think about getting any sort of job dealing with the public. Therefore, the surveys and writing are completely manageable and don't destroy my quality of life. I hope to make enough money with my screenwriting to avoid having to apply for disability. But if that doesn't pan out it might be something to seriously consider.

RE: Suitable jobs for people with social anxiety?

I am a freelance writer :). I also sub contract to a number of businesses through my own site. You might want to try Scripted.com. If you can get accepted they pay great money for blog posts :). Demand Media is another good site. If you are good at writing articles then Constant Content is a great place also. It's hard to get content accepted with them, but if you can, they always sell. I hope that helps :)

Thanks so much for the suggestions! I'm going to look up the sites you mentioned here right now. It seems like any form of writing is a very common job for people struggling with social anxiety. It does make a lot of sense and I commend anyone for trying to find a suitable fit.

RE: Suitable jobs for people with social anxiety?

Hi All,
Some effective tips for those who are personally dealing with social anxiety. Consult doctor and if the doctor prescribes you medication to treat social phobia, follow doctor's advice. Go through a cognitive behavioral therapy and take deep cleansing breaths to deal with social anxiety.
