Do you thrive in group settings, drawing energy from people? Or do you crave time alone to recharge and prefer to work independently? Whatever your style, your comfort in social interactions can be a factor in an interview. If you're an introvert— with a preference for independent tasks and "me time"—your quiet, composed nature can be an asset in a professional setting. But at an interview, that same nature may be misinterpreted as stand-offish or detached. If you're an introvert, try these tips: • Watch your body language. "Sit straight up, lean forward toward your speaker, and appear engaged and interested. Keep eye contact," suggests Fair. • Schedule wisely. Book events at the time of day that works best for you and try to build in a window for down time to collect your thoughts and refresh prior to the meeting. • Show that you're not all about isolation. Bring up examples of past successful team activities. I f y o u ' r e a n e x t r o v e r t — comfortable in groups and happier w ith ex posu re to people — a n interview may seem like your ideal setting. But your social confidence may make you seem domineering or self-important. If you're an extrovert, consider these factors: • Don't go overboard. Keep your answers focused. Don't ramble, go on tangents or hijack the topic. • Show stability. Discuss situations that depict your dedication and long- term commitments. • Be humble. Touting your strong points may come easily and can be a positive trait. Just don't take it too far — express gratitude for past opportunities and give credit to people who have helped you. Whatever your personality, most people find interviews stressful. Get an edge on your nerves through preparation. Understanding and working with your true nature can help you put your best foot forward. ●
