CareerCast Lists The 10 Best Jobs for Shy People

CARLSBAD, Calif. and PENNINGTON, N.J., March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/

-- For introverts, the communication that's required to network and

interview with others creates intense fear and, in some cases, makes

it impossible to job hunt. To help shy people succeed in the working

world, Careercast has identified 10 of the best jobs that play to

introverts' strengths while avoiding an overload of interactions each

day. The best jobs for shy people include archivist, astronomer,

film/video editor and social media manager, says CareerCast's new

report (http://www.careercast.com/jobs-rated/best-jobs-introverts).

"You wouldn't think that a job with social right in the name is suited

to introverts, but it's a great fit," says Tony Lee, publisher,

CareerCast. "While in-person interaction may not be an introvert's cup

of tea, technological outlets allow an introvert to maintain

person-to-person communication electronically without the stresses of

actual conversation."

Somehow, many introverts overcome their fears just long enough to land

a new job. But for introverts already in the workplace, they prefer

the security of having a job where the routine is clear and

interaction with others is either non-existent or kept to a minimum is

critical.

Shy people often are attracted to positions that limit their exposure

to new people, so they're typically found in jobs with functions that

tend to be focused around a limited group of people. For them, having

a stable, quiet career often outweighs the need for advancement.

Introverts often don't seek promotions that would require travel or

meeting with new people. Their fears may be holding them back even

when a new job would be a change to advance their skills and

knowledge.

CareerCast has identified the following 10 jobs from their Jobs Rated

report that are best suited to shy job seekers:
