Don’t forget about the introverts.
So you don’t consider yourself an extrovert? Don’t fret! We’ve published a handy one page guide to help introverted people to prepare for job interviews. The guide gives Brampton Recruitment’s five top tips for shy and reserved people who are searching for jobs. The guide can be downloaded here, free of charge.
Over one third of the UK population are classed as introverts. Contrary to popular belief, being an introvert doesn’t mean you can’t be successful, with famous faces including JK Rowling, Steve Wozniak and even Barack Obama falling into the category.
“We often get extremely shy job candidates approaching us, worried they won’t come across well in interviews because of their introverted personality,” explains Vikki Cave, Senior Recruitment Consultant at Brampton Recruitment. “Worrying about the situation can sometimes be the cause of the problem. The key to success is to make sure you’re fully prepared beforehand and not enter the interview room thinking you’re going to fail.
“Most of all, it’s important to understand that being introverted is okay and that introverts are just as likely to do well as their extroverted counterparts. In fact, a recent survey has shown that 70 percent of chief information officers (CIOs) are introverts.
“With this infographic, we hope to encourage introverts to continue their job search and not be put off by the interview process. As one of our candidates, they will also get as much support as they need, including practice interviews and professional advice on their CV.”
