I’m having a hard time fitting into my new agency’s culture. (They’re very extroverted and I’m introverted). I get nervous they’ll think they made a mistake and fire me :(

Make sure to have 1-on-1 coffees, lunches or happy hours with the people you’d like to know better. You’ll be more comfortable being yourself in those scenarios and they’ll love you when they get to know you. Fellow-introvert tested 😀

Honestly, I’m an introvert who has really branched out this year. I think people know I’m quiet now, but I’ve made a habit of making friends with one person in each “clique”. For one, it’s easier than commanding a group for us introverts. Two, i feel like that person vouches for you. “Quiet? I was talking a bunch to him earlier!” Builds a bit of mystery. Last, It eases your transition. Suddenly you’re talking to one person and another comes by. For me, getting out of my shell takes time. I’ve been told that i have layers and that couldn’t be more true.

Common trap us introverts create for ourselves. So long as you’re kind and competent, you’ll be fine! Let your work speak for itself, but don’t forget this is a communications field... so you’ll need to communicate.
