I was an independent living trainer and community access trainer for people with disabilities. I only used a computer to help my clients use their home computers (most just wanted to do basic searches, online shopping, or playing games, so it’s not difficult). 

I also didn’t use the computer in most of my high-school/college farm hand, leaf raking, babysitting, and cashier jobs (sure the register was “computerized” but I was just punching in $$ amounts and the tray would open and tell me how much change to give the customer).

That’s a tough one. I’m not sure how “limited” you’re looking for, but my Dad is a truck driver and even he has to use a computer to make his logs. So obviously it’s not much, maybe an hour once a day, but it’s still a job you wouldn’t *think* uses a computer and does.

As long as you’re OK using a computer possibly to clock in and out and record your hours or your work then you should be able to find something.

I used to clean new houses too, the dust & debris left after construction and carpentry were completed.  No computers.  But tediously cleaning tiny grooves in elaborate woodwork with a q-tip in monster size houses.  It was the worst job I ever did.

Carolsays:  it really would help to know where the limitations are, I.e. Why you are asking.

It’s going to be a given that any job likely would require the use of email with the possibility of needing to look on a computer for info/troubleshooting. Working for an established company would certainly require that. What about a dog walker or dog sitter? If you could get customers who would be okay with phone only contact, that could work.

Any job involving driving would not require computer use or at least limited use for timecards.  So bus driver, taxi driver, etc.  An Uber driver would need to be a little more computer savvy.  My mother is a daycare worker and I know she rarely uses a computer.  Perhaps a line cook at a restaurant although the orders may be received via computer.  Movers and any type of manual work.

I agree we could provide more pertinent answers if we knew the context of the question. I came up with janitor, nanny (if the parents don’t correspond with you through email), artist, entrepreneur (if you do all your business offline). I suppose more jobs in the third world are done without computers because the technology is less common there.

I want to know why you can’t use a computer at work. I bet us bees can follow along.

I’m a surgical tech. I set up and maintain the sterile field in the O.R. and I also have to read the surgeon’s mind. I never get on a computer for work.

EDubbs:  I am a designer and I’m on the computer 110% of the time. Been sitting here for 12 hours straight on my laptop.. Sad but true 🙁

Carolsays:  But wait…how did you access Weddingbee?  There are probably jobs that would require no more computer activity than what it takes to browse the web, create an account and post on a website.

luna_c:  She may not be asking for herself.

I don’t know if I can really expand on what others have said, but wish you the best of luck.
