Introverts, Here Are 40 Jobs That Don’t Involve Too Much Social Interaction

If you’re an introvert, here are some job suggestions from Ask Reddit.

20.Braille transcriber. Also called braillist.

Depending on where you work, school district or independent, you could be transcribing textbooks, novels, magazines, or homework/classwork/tests—the daily stuff in schools. I work for a school district so I do mainly the daily stuff. Lately I’ve been getting more requests for novels my students want to read.

I don’t teach Braille, I’m not a teacher. I don’t even have to work with the students, though I do like checking in with them. Most of my communication for work is to teachers and that’s all through email. One time, I went a whole week without talking to anybody at work, and I work during normal school hours! And I didn’t go to college for this. I took a year long course through the National Federation of the Blind, and you can take that course online. Though I would recommend finding a class in your area if possible. Once you get the hang of typing Braille, it’s like just regular typing. I just stick my headphones in my ears and listen to podcasts all day. It’s amazing!

Caveat: I wouldn’t say the job is super easy. If you work with a school district, you may have to do math, chemistry, foreign languages, maybe even music. Those are all different codes of Braille. And then you also need to be creative enough to come up with ways to make things tactual for students, but discrete enough to be used in class. Graphs and drawings from geometry? Oh my god, kill me now. But once you get in a groove, it’s okay.
