Where to work for shy people?


According to the warehouse, the psyche of people can be divided into extroverts and introverts. The former easily come in contact with the people around them, adapt well in any team, prefer a team work style and are able to openly express their thoughts. Contact with people is necessary for this type of air.

Introverts are the exact opposite of extroverts. They prefer to be silent, do not like new acquaintances, and in the company of new people they feel rather constrained.

In stock. Sit yourself there in your kennel with boxes and pieces of paper.

Wherever. Over time, shyness will pass if you work with people. I myself know, and I heard about other such cases.

Author, go to the secretaries. Wedge kicks out a wedge.
And at work, remember that this is work and communicating with these or those people is just part of the work. Play the role, enter the image. And everything will work out. Gradually your shyness will go away.

I am an incredibly shy person, just pathologically. But she worked as a journalist, learned to overcome this in herself. Now I don’t work, sometimes I remember the past and marvel: "How could I? How was I not afraid? After all, I sometimes had to be arrogant." And now she’s become a coward again. So I advise you to deal with complexes and intentionally choose a job involving communication with people.

Why break yourself? Look for a quiet job, perhaps at home, or as a librarian.

Stage One - Summary

It is extremely difficult for shy people to give the item “tell us about your achievements”. It’s embarrassing for them to tell what they did for the company, what awards and titles they received, and they attribute all the merits to the team. Nevertheless, a resume is not a collective document, but a personal one for each employee. Indicate achievements in it, even if they were accomplished in a team.

It is also necessary to note professional ambitions. Otherwise, even with the necessary experience, qualifications, education, shy people will not grow in office. Just because it’s hard for them to write in the headline the resume “Department Head”.

The second stage is a cover letter

It is his recruiter who sees the first along with basic information about the applicant (name and surname, position, salary level). And it should be designed in such a way that the hr-manager wants to open this particular resume.

A lot has been written about the art of compiling such small business cards (4-6 sentences). But it’s hard for humble people to say: “For your vacancy, I am the best candidate. I have the knowledge, experience, education, recommendations for this. ”

You can only advise one thing - to force yourself to write such a cover letter. Create a template and change the name of the organization and position in it.

The third stage - monitoring vacancies

They need not only to be viewed, but also to respond to all that apply. Shy candidates often argue like this: “I posted my resume. If it interests anyone, they will contact me. ” This is a passive position, and it needs to be changed to a proactive one: “If my resume is not suitable for someone, this is not scary. To be seen, I must send him. "

The fourth stage - telephone interview

Typically, a telephone interview is preceded by a face-to-face interview. This is essentially a 10 minute voiceover cover letter. Not very sociable people are best prepared in advance to prepare, allowing you to answer the questions of the recruiter by phone. These questions are predictable: “tell us about your last job,” “what are you looking for right now,” “what kind of job are you interested in,” “why did you leave your last job”. If you prepare the answers, you will not have to improvise, which will save the introvert from unnecessary experiences.

Fifth stage - face-to-face interview

Shy applicants often do not get to this stage. All recruiters know this, and the motives for the fear of the applicant are often far-fetched. For example, “the requirements stated that I needed to bring a diploma with me, but I didn’t find an insert from him,” “before the interview, I went to a cafe to have a cup of tea and stained my shirt.” To help yourself, treat the interview as part of the job, a formal procedure that you need to go through and which is not an event in your personal life. If it’s easier for you to be interviewed via Skype, you can ask the employer about this form of interview.

Sixth stage - recommendation sheet

The “finalists” who passed the interview, the recruiter asks for a list of people who are ready to give feedback or comment on their colleague. Typically, these are managers, employees above the level of neighboring departments. Of course, the applicant must agree in advance with them, warn about the upcoming call and discuss the wording of the future characteristics. Otherwise, the recruiter may hear unflattering recommendations, which will interfere with hiring.
