Discuss here how to survive and thrive in consulting as an introvert

Not all are like that, but Im irked by people who only have their jobs/rise up because they are extroverted/network. You have to pick up the slack on the project because they can’t do their job.

How do you guys think I should handle being shy? I enjoy the company of others, but can’t find my voice in a group and frequently find myself unintentionally cut off or other situations.

What is wrong with people that try to push introverts to present because they think “it’s good for us and we will get over it this way”?!? As an introvert I know that I need to know my stuff continue.

Is it appropriate to skip company holiday parties (whether formal or informal)? I like the holidays/my coworkers, but don’t feel like I fit in with them. I think I’d be happier doing my own thing.

I feel like I have no idea how to interact with higher ups. I am able to come out of my shell with peers since I feel comfortable and can relate with them. But I feel so stupid and awkward cont.

It takes me time to warm up & connect to new people, esp. in casual settings. Anyone any strategies how to deal with that? I see I am missing out on good and deeper connections.

That moment the team is ready to pack up for the day and then someone utters the words “so where should we go for dinner?”... meanwhile you already had a nice solo dinner planned out for yourself. KMS

One time ad for a talented, strategic thinking single female 🐠 in the Houston or Dallas area. If you’re patient and hoping to build something long term, you’re invited in my DMs :)

How have your soft/social skills improved thanks to your consulting career? (I’m just starting now and feel very professionally socially awkward/inept)

In all of the consulting projects I have been in so far, the team works together in a team room. How do introverts deal with spending time with the same people all day with no time for yourself?

I'm still pretty new to this app and generally don't use things like this. Had couple questions - 1) What is the networking feature / is it worth using? 2) Can you see the other posts / replies Cont
