It can be tricky to fight for your rights and take what you think you deserve when you’re an introvert. Here are 5 things you can do to have a better career in the future.
Know Who You Are
Accept yourself for what you are and learn how to use it to your advantage. You may not be as outgoing as you’d like, but you have other amazing qualities.
If you work with people, having lunch alone can be important for recharging.
Networking doesn’t only occur at large events full of strangers. You can meet people online or in one-on-one situations, just don’t avoid it altogether.
It’s completely okay to skip happy hour after work on Friday, but you should show your coworkers that that’s not because of them. Bring donuts on Monday or genuinely thank them for inviting you out with them.
The Right Job for You
You may need to change several jobs until you find the one you’re comfortable with and that’s completely okay.
