Networking For Introverts: Tips for Success 1. Focus on quality over quantity. Networking is about building relationships - and one of the strengths of introverts is the tendency to build fewer but stronger and closer relationships. One person who knows your strengths well and vouches for you can be an extremely valuable asset. 2. Prepare open-ended questions ahead of time. Brainstorm questions such as “How did you get into this career?” or “What advice would you give a new graduate?” Bring this list with you and review it before entering a conversation. 3. Find other introverts. Studies show that ½ to ⅓ of the population are introverts. Find those who are also sitting alone and break the ice with them. 4. Arrive early. It usually is more comfortable to arrive early than late and have to enter into a room full of people. 5. Do your homework. If you really want to talk to a specific person, look up his/her LinkedIn profile or company bio. Find something that you can relate to or ask about.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
