Introvert Shmintrovert…!

Up until I read this article, I had the idea that modern job search methods — especially the use of networking and social media — were tuned for extroverted people. It made sense to me that reaching out to people we don’t know and navigating lots of conversations is the domain of extroverts with the “gift of gab”.

Read: Myths about Extroverts and Introverts. I am encouraged by this article, which casts light on the misconception that the world is ready for the taking by extroverted people only.

During a job search especially, when job seekers are trying to create the best opportunities possible for themselves, it seems like the right time to “step out of ourselves” if we are uncomfortable with the idea of networking and talking to people about our value.

Extroverted or introverted, we owe it to ourselves — especially during a job search — to do the things that create the best opportunities.

If you’ve been worried that being introverted is holding you back, read this article and reset your ambitions. Your method is different, but just as effective!
