One man’s meat is another man’s poison as the saying goes. Likewise, one person’s choice of career wouldn’t suit another. In a world which can seem more suited to the loud, out-going and ultra-confident, how can someone who possesses a more introverted personality succeed and flourish in their chosen career.
For every plus side of being an extrovert, there’s also a positive to being an introvert. Employers will see you as a huge asset to the company - so never feel you have to be something you’re not. Just because you’re shy doesn’t mean you can’t do your job – it just means you don’t like being the centre of attention or feel the need to shout loudest to be noticed.

This allows you to use your creative and imaginative skills, coupled with great attention to detail. Any meetings with clients will be no problem - you’ll have your designs to do the talking and your excellent knowledge of your specialist field will mean the limelight will be on you, but not leave you feeling uncomfortable.
Social Media Coordinator
Whilst social interaction can be a source of worry, this type of virtual interaction is ideal. Everything is done online – planning, scheduling and carrying out social media campaigns – right up your street!

Planning, coding, building systems, keeping them working – what could be more satisfying.
Again, allowing you to work alone, or with a team, to express your creative side.
Incoming Sales Advisor
Sales? Surely it would be the last thing an introvert would be interested in? But no, incoming enquiries would allow you to show your specialist knowledge of products or services, helping customers make an informed choice, with the satisfaction of closing a sale, knowing you have done a great job.
Most importantly, you can be anything you want to be! After all, look at what these famous introverts have achieved:
… and many, many more. Just be your best and achieve!
