What kind of entry level jobs are there for people with bad speaking skills?

You know some of us been shy all our lives and don't talk much, so our language skills are bad even if we are adults. The only thing i find in newspapers, etc .. are RECEPTIONIST jobs, but they wouldn't like a person like me who is going to mess up all the time and doesn't have much personality. Been to school and everything , i have skills.. but all the jobs seem to be for talkative people only. even a basic office assistant job. In fact i had a few Temp. office assistant jobs before and they hated me and then got rid of me because i didnd't fit in with all the other non stop talkers.

Data Entry would be your best bet. You don't have to speak with anyone, just enter data into a computer system. The payrate for data entry tends to be $10-$13 depending on experience and type of data entry. Most banks need great amount of data entry employees.

Did the agency pull you out of that assignment? I never heard such a thing in which you get yanked out of an assignment for not talking! I am a temp and whenever I am on assignment, they would tell me how many days the project is going to last. A few times it was a mismatch. I am the quiet one as well and I don't have... More
