Career Creator reveals ‘perfect’ remote job for introverts
The COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped the nature of the American workplace, and while many companies have pushed employees back to the office, many continue to telecommute full-time or part-time.
In May, it was reported that there were a large number of jobs in the United States that still remained vacant with 1.9 positions available for each job seeker, and this number has not changed much over the years. of the year. Although there are a multitude of jobs available, some industries, such as restaurants and hotels, are experiencing more severe shortages than others.
But for those looking for gainful employment, sometimes it’s enough to find out about interesting positions you’ve never heard of before. One TikToker, Michael (@findfulfillingwork), recently went viral for telling viewers about “knowledge base managers,” high-paying roles for introverts who are typically aloof.

Many of Michael’s social media posts are aimed at helping individuals find work-from-home jobs, and he offers free tools to help job seekers find jobs they love.
“My remote job is great for introverts,” Michael says in the viral clip. “No one talks about it, it’s well paid, there’s just no clear path to it. I broke into customer service. I just started in customer service doing e- emails, phone calls, and chats, and then I started helping in other areas. I started helping and helping with documentation, training, all that kind of stuff.
The TikToker then registers for job postings, highlighting a knowledge base manager role.
“Here’s one: Knowledge Base Manager,” he said, pointing to the screen. “It’s not far off, but it’s a good example. The good thing is that they tell us the compensation, $100,000 to $120,000. No mention of diploma, just three years of experience in knowledge management. You may still be confused: what is this job? Let me show you an example.”
Michael notes that viewers may be confused as to what the post actually entails.
“Here’s a website called Getguru.com,” he explains. “The Knowledge Base Manager essentially creates the Help Center. They create the practical documents on a website. And that’s what I do for my job.
Intuit also released another list of gigs that might suit people with more introverted personalities, including accountants, actuaries, app developers, archivists, and data architects, among others.
TikTokers who saw Michael’s post suggested other work-from-home positions for introverts, as well as some tips and tricks on how to get a job as a knowledge base manager.
“Try going through a recruiter and it may help you get through the door. I am currently working for an Ed-tech with a customer support role,” one user wrote.
“Look for a tech writer – that’s what I do and it’s the same thing,” said another.
“I’m a docs/tech writer and I barely talk to people,” added a third. “They hardly ask for degrees just 2+ years of some kind of document work.”
One viewer argued that knowledge base manager roles can open up more opportunities in technical writing. “Can confirm. it’s also a great route to get into technical writing,” they said. “Depending on the company, there can be a lot of overlap in roles.”
Others have mentioned that a great foundation for this type of work is compiling any type of knowledge base or guide one has created for past jobs. Additionally, managing data, writing FAQs, or creating any type of tutorial or step-by-step plan could serve as stellar talking points if you were to land an interview for this position, viewers noted.
“OH MY GOD. I’ve built more than one KB in previous ecom jobs and you say I can JUST do this?? I’ll start looking,” one user said.
Some have argued that “knowledge base manager” is just another name for a content writer. However, Michael states that while this job title can certainly refer to the same job requirements, it could also be reserved for marketing positions.
The Daily Dot reached out to Michael via an Instagram direct message for further comment.
