"If you cringe at the thought of networking and 'selling yourself,' there is no better guide for your job search than Wendy Gelberg
From the informed perspective of an introvert who runs a very successful career practice, Wendy
provides empathetic advice and practical strategies that will help any introverted or shy person not only be more successful, but feel more confident, assured, and 'normal.' 'The Successful Introvert' is an invaluable guide that is long overdue."
"My 'dirty little secret' is that I am an ultra-shy introvert (yes, I'm both; thank you Wendy Gelberg
for explaining that they're not the same).
Given that way of characterizing my personality, you can see that I've been socialized to believe shyness and introversion are bad.
In reading just the first few passages in Wendy Gelberg's
Introduction, I immediately saw myself, relaxed and felt better about my 'affliction,' and drank in her
words: 'My goal in writing this book is to pick up where other job search and career transition books leave off and to honor people of all types.' She
is so right - that no other career book is dedicated to people like us.
As a major proponent of using storytelling in the job search, I embraced Gelberg's
strategy of changing/re-framing our shyness/introversion stories so they work in the job search.
GETS me, and she
gets the multitudes of shy and/or introverted people like me, all of whom will benefit enormously from this unprecedented take on the job search.
gives introverts insights that empower us in general and strategies that work in the stress-filled moment.
has taken a fresh approach to a topic that is almost never mentioned in job search 'how-to' books.
truly understands the introverted personality, you will find great relief and sage advice for managing a job search in this seemingly extroverted world we live (and compete) in."
Those who consider themselves introverts will be relieved that they share this same attribute as others, yet Wendy
proves it's not exactly a bad thing.
