Everyone knows that you are NOT a people person, except you… Or perhaps you know you are a bitch and that you don’t like people and people don’t like you. Most careers require a certain degree of people skills and the ability to work in a team or manage people, if you want to be successful. However, there are a few careers that allow for you to be a loner and still be successful:
Accountant: While just about any position will require some amount of face-time with co-workers and clients, accountants find themselves diving into a spreadsheet more often than reaching for a cell phone. With plenty of financial data and tax information to digest, chit-chat time is at a minimum.
Good News: The U.S Department of Labor predicts a 22 percent increase in job opportunities for accountants and auditors through 2018.
Average Salary for Accountants/Auditors: $68,960*
Computer Programmer: It’s not uncommon to see computer programmers listening to music while coding. Telecommuting is also an option at some companies. If you can write the code (which isn’t easy) many tech managers might be happy to leave you alone.
Good News: Job opportunities are expected to soar 22 percent for computer programmers and software engineers through 2018, according to the Department of Labor.
Average Salary for Computer Programmers: $74,690*
Writer: Writing is a solitary process. The ability to block out distractions and stay focused is essential in this career. Marketing is one industry where writers and copywriters are in demand.
Good News: The Department of Labor expects salaried writing positions to increase as the economy strengthens. Online media outlets are driving many of these writing opportunities.
Average Salary for Writers/Authors: $65,960*
Forensic Science Technician: Although crime scene investigators have to deal with people, it’s often just dealing with their hair, tissue, or DNA samples. When not collecting evidence, working in a laboratory setting is most common for forensic scientists.
Good News: Jobs for forensic science technicians are expected to grow 20 percent through 2018, according to the Department of Labor.
Average Pay for Forensic Science Technicians: $55,040*
Budget Analyst: Similar to accountants, budget analysts help organizations increase profits by improving efficiency. But the bulk of their time is often spent working independently while compiling and crunching numbers.
Good News: Thanks largely to consulting opportunities, budget analysts are projected to enjoy a 15 percent increase in jobs through 2018, according to the Department of Labor.
Average Salary for Budget Analysts: $70,660*
Medical Transcriptionist: Petty office politics and gossip don’t easily reach the ears of medical transcriptionists, who wear headphones while transcribing dictated recordings from doctors and other health care pros. A no-nonsense, buttoned-up approach can help since you’ll be editing reports for grammar and clarity. Many MT’s work at home or off-site from their clients.
Good News: Independent contractors are common in this career, with many working from home.
Average Pay for Medical Transcriptionists: $33,530*
Actuary: Risk assessment is the name of the game for actuaries, who spend their days analyzing the habits of people and companies. Instead of talking with people, though, their work is based on statistics.
Good News: Employment of actuaries is expected to jump 21 percent through 2018, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.
Average Salary for Actuaries: $98,620*
On a side note: Many women that we think are bitches have serious mental illnesses that are not being addressed which could range from something as mild as seasonal depression to something a major as bipolar disorder or split personalities. If you have a friend or family member or maybe it is yourself, whom is constantly “acting crazy”, starting shit, extremely moody and that you may even want to knock the hell out sometimes, you may suggest they seek some mental health treatment.
