If you are looking for a job that offers scheduling flexibilty, can help build your confidence, and is easy-going, perhaps you should look into market research interviewing.
Market research interviewers conduct public opinion polls, surveys, and market research, usually over the phone. The downside is that this job can be repetitive as it involves sticking to a set question script.
This job requires good telephone skills and a clear speaking voice. Often, knowing more than one or two languages can be an advantage. Most of these jobs also require evening or weekend work.
Market research interviewers have nothing to sell as these companies are simply hired to conduct surveys, so if you are applying for a market research job that involves selling, it is likely a sales jobs masquerading as a market research job.
