What are some good careers for introverts?
I am graduating with a bachelor's degree in finance in a couple of months (and already have an associates of general studies), but most of the jobs related to my major are sales jobs. I am an introvert and really do not see myself being a salesperson. I have worked in food/ customer service for 9 years (I'm in my mid-20's). I would prefer to stay away from food service due to issues with pimples. I love having a steady job (staying with one company). I am extremely loyal to whomever I work for. I am really uncomfortable with commission work. I have a 3.25 GPA & an IQ of 127. I love helping others, but I am uncomfortable around large groups or making presentations. I thought about retail (non-commission) or administrative position, but those tend not to pay much. (I'm not looking for loads of money, but starting around $26K or more would be great.) I live in the southeast and must stay in the area for at least 6 years. Does anyone have any suggestions? (I've been in college for 7.5 years- so I will not be going back anytime soon.) My degree is for financial planning (in this area- it's all sales). The pimples are not just from grease- it's from stress (now that I'm not working as much at that job- my face has cleared up extremely well). I've always been introverted- this will not change (trust me I have tried- including several speech classes).

clear up the pimples and feel good about yourself and become an extrovert as that's where the money is these days. Your pimples may be from something you eat or from something that you're alergic to (like pets, dust, etc.) or may be alergic from something you wear or even the clothes washing stuff you use when yo wash...
