9 Ways To Network As An Introvert
Quick Summary
SPOILER ALERT: Networking is everything when it comes to landing a job and advancing in your career. We’ve all heard the phrase: “your network = your net worth,” and it’s true.

Which really sucks for introverts, since large networking (and even small) can feel both intimidating and exhausting. So first, let’s clear up some misconceptions about introverts. Introverts aren’t actually shy or socially inept like many would believe. In fact, many introverts are quite outgoing. People are often surprised to learn that I’m an introvert.
