The Introvert’s Guide To Job Interviews

By | source:Here Jan 15th, 2018

If you’re the kind of person who feels comfortable in a room filled with people, making small talk with strangers and mingling around,
then this one is not for you. On the other hand, if you’d rather stay at home chilling with your cat and a great book, you’re probably an introvert!

Luckily, you’re not alone on the introvert boat. Research says that an approximate of 25 to 50 percent of the global population could be classified as introverts. This personality type gets energized from having “alone time”, or interacting with small groups, and often feels overwhelmed in new situations or very large groups of people. Introverts and extroverts have different brain wiring, and even career prospects can change depending on your personality.

As an introverted person, appearing friendly, meeting new people and being outgoing is often a challenge, so imagine my state of mind whenever I need to go to a job interview. To get rid of anxiety, I try to prepare interview question answers ahead of time.  I might even do a couple of test runs to the interview address to be *really* sure I have the time to get there.

These might seem like overkill or pure common sense, but you and I know there’s no such thing as too much preparation! To save you stress on your big day, here’s a quick guide to acing your interviews: from what to do beforehand, to the basics of showcasing your strengths (without bragging!) and how to follow up afterward. You’ll win your dream job in the blink of an eye!
