Payroll specialist pays well-- however most employers look for bachelors.

Lpn pays 19-20 but I can't groom or wash naked people

Central sterile processing seems pretty decent.. pay is like 17 and up Im sure
Never heard of payroll job, hmm.

Truck Driving is a great job for people with Social Anxiety. Don't have to really talk to anyone your on the road all by yourself.

Nursing is a great field as well but its the opposite of Truck Driving in that you have to deal with people all the time. Good pay and you can get a job anywhere in Nursing

You have to have a strong stomach for nursing. Youll be washing and bathing people. Grooming them everywhere ( genitals) cleaning them if they shxt on themselves and..yeah its alot.

Trucking is nice youre just out alot and rarely home.

Yup it pays well if you have a bachelors. Have to be good with your math. I think its tied into accounting.

You could become a lead or supervisor but that's not something someone with social anxiety can do.

The workforce is supply, demand, and barriers to entry.

So, wanting high pay, low skill, and jobs that aren't a hardship aren't easy to find since many would go that route and ultimately reduce wages.


Find a government job. Nothing in the government works like the real world.

Second a government job with the caveat that you won't be making $20/hr without at least a master's and/or specialized skills. Low-skill and low stress might net you a clerical position, but pay will be slightly above minimum wage. Also you could end up working the front desk at the food stamp building, which will not be low stress.

Being an online service provider or freelancer. You don't have to visit your workplace once in your life.

You could work in a lab as a tech.

-Medical Lab Technician - they analyze human excretions (requires an associate's)
-Optical Lab Technician - they make lenses for prescription eyeglasses(trained on the job)
-Dental Lab Technician - they produce dentures(some places seek those who need training, others require experience)

If you want a desk job, maybe give customs compliance a look. There's a bunch of new trade deals and policies, proliferation in ecommerce and global shipping, etc and the average importer/exporter has fairly vague in-house expertise in this.

It gets very complex and better paying jobs (consulting) require 5+ years of experience and a couple certifications. Early career positions rarely have requirements beyond being current with industry knowledge and trends - At that skill level, average pay is like $40-45k per year.

Downsides is there is no real medium to this job. You're either a senior specialist or you aren't, and the salaries are just as polar - you're making 40k or you're making 80k. There's no real in between from what I've seen.

It's also pretty boring, and you should prepare to read a lot, even if you don't necessarily need to formally train for it.
