Networking for introverts

September 10, 2007 at 12:38 am 2 comments

I study (social) networks, not networking, though people often mistakenly think I should be an expert of networking. So wrong.
I found this article on Businesspundit very helpful as well as the video on “how to not  suck on networking”

Interestingly, it suggests that one’s personality traits, especially extroversion/introversion, are associated with networking ability and networking results, . A borderline extrovert/introvert as I am, I do believe that there are some gifted connectors in the world, while networking ability is also something that begs constant cultivation. One thing I did not realize soon enough about gradschool is that I cannot treat myself as a “real” student, which I often do, but a professional that needs to actively thinking about and planning for her career path.
