Job Search Tips for Introverts

Not everyone is comfortable openly networking or great at making themselves look confident during an interview. For those of us that are introverts naturally, here are some useful jobs search tips to help re-start your career.

1. Be visible. Use social networking and conventional networking opportunities to ensure that you’re on the radar screen of those who can help or hire you.

2. Use your preference for deep relationships to listen to others and position yourself as a resource, to make networking less uncomfortable and sometimes even enjoyable.

3. Practice your answers to interview questions. By scripting out what you want to say and reviewing your success stories, you’ll find it easier to “think on your feet.”

4. To stand out from other candidates and uncover hidden jobs, use your preference for in-depth knowledge to develop a list of target companies and thoroughly research them.

5. Develop your self-promotional skills so that you can explain – on paper and in person – the value you can bring to your next employer.

6. Balance the solitary job search activities that you will be naturally drawn to with more social activities, since the latter are statistically more likely to result in jobs.

7. Schedule recovery time and breaks to recharge your batteries when you are involved in the highly social aspects of the job search process.

8. Prepare – for networking events by researching the people you will encounter, to facilitate easier conversations; – for interviews by researching the people, the company, the industry, and the competition.

9. Apply your listening skills during an interview to probe for information about the employer so you can evaluate whether the job is a good fit for you.

10. Keep your eyes on the prize - make conscious choices that bring you closer to your goal, even if some of the necessary activities make you uncomfortable.
