8 Networking Tips for Introverts 


"Networking events tend to be designed for a particular personality - the 'work hard, play hard,' never-met-a-stranger type. Rooms filled with crowds of people, not to mention the pressure to be interesting and likable, is enough to give most introverts sweaty palms. While visibility is a natural part of networking, that doesn't mean you have to be the center of attention. How can you let your true personality shine through?"

"Internships in both Washington D.C. and Minnesota helped me get to where I am today. They helped me make connections and I met so many people in the field by being so involved. I tried to make sure that I never came across as 'transactional' with the contacts that I made. I maintained consistent correspondence with them and built personal relationships, so when the time came and I asked for assistance in the job search, they were happy to help me."

"Taking initiative to explore opportunities is very important. Talking with your supervisor and colleagues is a great way to improve professional skills and establish connections. Generally, they love to share their knowledge and experiences. It may give you a better and clearer vision into your future."
