Failing that and depending on your computer skills, something in IT may be possible. You could also look at research, lab work or data processor. All of these don't usually involve speaking to many, if any people. If you explain the problem before an interview, maybe with the assistance of a society for your condition, with the disabilities laws now, and the right qualifications for the position, you should stand a chance of a sensitive interview.
There's no reason at all why you shouldn't be able to get a job in something like a grocery store. If you try the bigger ones, they may have positions available in the stockroom, so that you don't need to speak to too many people.
hotpotato answered Sunday August 5 2007, 7:33 pm: I don't know about the job interviewing process, but I am wondering if someone can ask for you or you can ask yourself if it is possible for you to do the interview by phone? or by computer? or write the answer down instead of speaking? There should be another alternative or way of interviewing a person. [ hotpotato's advice column | Ask hotpotato A Question ]
