Jobs with little interaction?

Postby Dazed » Tue Jun 09, 2009 11:55 am

I looked around and couldn't find a thread about that. I'm sorry if it has been discussed before :)

I've been in college for 2 semesters and i'm still doing general studies. But i need to make a decision and focus on some specific degree asap. I'm not really looking into putting myself into social situations to help 'cure' the avoidant tendencies 'cause, for me, they cause more harm than help but i also need a job (with a degree). I really would like to become a vet but i haven't a clue how much interaction that could involve...So does anyone know of jobs, that require a degree with minimum interaction with people? I haven't been able to find anything.

I have a chemistry degree. I was never able to get a job with it. But many chemistry jobs don't require much interaction with people. Some computer jobs are probably like that. i would imagine programming.

In the long term, yes. But when just getting into working it's best to be as comfotable as possible. I started with a job that required a lot of interaction, but it was a volunteer thing where I worked a couple of hours a day, 4 days a week. After a time I got used to it.

Thank you for the suggestions =) I think I will consider programming as it's the only thing amongst those I could possibly pull off.

@ Uberfrau : I agree with you but the thought of a job in itself is already worrying me and I haven't even picked my major yet. I want to take one step at a time like Parador said. =) I could always get into a more social work place =)

If you learn any other language, you could work as a translator for a magazine or a newspaper.
