I have been conducting surveys for roughly 17 years. The reason I chose this job is because I am an extreme introvert and I am very uncomfortable being around other people, especially people who ask personal questions.
The challenge that I am experiencing is that if interviewers do not meet the hourly production rate, they are sent home, which obviously affects their pay. I am looking for work that is best suited for me.
At my current job, I work in the basement to avoid other co-workers and because it is quiet. All of the other interviewers work on the main floor. Working next to other people is quite irritating and draining for me and I don't relate to the other employees. It is especially irritating for me when I am trying to meet quota when a co-worker interrupts my work to ask me a question that is not business related.
I am relieved to know that there are other introverts like me and I would greatly appreciate it if you could please suggest what types of jobs that might be best suited for me. I was invited to a workshop so as to explore new job opportunities. I turned it down claiming that the workshop was held at a time that was later than I would have liked. Although that is partially true, the real reason I turned down the invitation was because of my extreme fear of people.
I am single and I want to find work that I like and does not involve interactions with other people.
