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.


I appreciate the tips and I already practice all those things. I see a psychiatrist and a psychologist. I also completed a CBT group and take medication. However, I still experience limitations with the type of work I can personally do because of my anxiety and other mood disorder issues. So I'm really trying to create a career path that helps me achieve the balance and structure I need to stay sane and support myself.

RE: Suitable jobs for people with social anxiety?

I do think there are jobs that a person with social phobias can perform. For example, one could clean hotel rooms, you hardly ever deal with anyone at this type of job. I understand that there are those who need disability for this disorder, but I also think that there are some who abuse the system with these claims. I hope there will be social sucerity for those of us who have worked for so many years and paid in, when we are too old to work.

RE: Suitable jobs for people with social anxiety?

Hello Everyone,

I have had one type of anxiety or another my entire life. I have been to so many doctors, especially since the worst of my anxiety attacks began back in the 1980's before it seemed to really explode in the 21st Century. I think that most people probably have one type of anxiety or another these days. I do what seems to work for me, and that is getting 8 to 9 hours of sleep on most nights, eating healthy, whole foods, and of course my small amount of daily chocolate. I also only drink water...a lot of it everyday! Exercise is very important for my mental as well as for my physical being, I definitely feel better after I work out. I do take several medications that I would eventually like to get off of, but for now they have seemed to help me, especially with my sleep. I need to quit smoking and I am going to take up that task on Friday. I know when I quit that I will feel so much better about myself and it won't be the burden anymore that it has been for the past 35 years! Deep breathing is also an essential thing to make time for many times during the day. These are just a few tips that I hope will help as many people as possible.

RE: Suitable jobs for people with social anxiety?

I have a job where I don't have to deal with the public and I really don't have to mingle a lot with co-workers so it is good for me. I am a graphic design for a small family business so I have my own room where I design and do my work. I spend a lot of time alone with my thoughts and I like it that way. There is the odd occasion where I have to talk to a customer and that always stresses me out but it doesn't happen often so I do my best to handle it when it does.

RE: Suitable jobs for people with social anxiety?

For me, I'd say confronting it head on is the only way to get rid of the anxiety. Of course it would be better to be in some sort of relaxing job, but if you do the stay at home deal or some other type of solitary job your feelings of anxiety will be ramped up whenever you're around a lot of other people. When I had anxiety problems I just kept at it, and kept going into work to the point I was super stressed. I started trying to get better sleep, eat better, and exercise and that helped. After a while when work became routine the anxiety subsided for the most part.

RE: Suitable jobs for people with social anxiety?

First off, I think they all should do their best to diminish and eventually destroy their anxiety, as it hinders them a lot. A monotonous secluded job won't help them solve the problem. It could even aggravate it, I suppose.

However, sticking to the topic, I could suggest some jobs like a content writer, for example. Or a web designer. If you don't have a phone anxiety you can work on a phone.

I've had SA my whole life. Always looked for online work at home jobs. I've been a part of literally every survey company trying to get by because I couldn't stand working in dietary around people all day long anymore. I found a way to start an online business for free.

RE: Suitable jobs for people with social anxiety?

I think the perfect job for a person suffering from social anxiety is any online one. Honestly, I suffer from social anxiety as well, I don't blend well in groups. And since I started working online, I never looked back. It has been the best experience for me so far. I have tried my hand at transcription jobs and that's probably the highest paying one I've tried. It can be a bit repetitive though and at times, boring. But if you want a job that pays well, consider this one. You don't have to socialise with anyone at all and you can keep to yourself.

Another in demand online job is writing. You can try blogging, freelance writing or content mill sites. Again, there's little to no chance of even socialising with other people here. You might talk to your client but it's via email only, most of the time. It pays well especially if you are able to build a good client base.

Then you can also consider survey sites. They don't really pay much but they're good side earners. They only ask for your preferences but it's all anonymous.

Actually, there's lots of opportunities online. And it's perfect for us, because we don't need to interact directly with other people. Right? Good luck!

RE: Suitable jobs for people with social anxiety?

Separating yourself from the society will only make it much worse and turn you into a much more secluded person. I guess you don't want this. So, I guess you may give phone jobs a shot. They are not hard to do and involve a constant verbal connection with people. I believe the level of your social anxiety will drop after some months at this type of job.
