Welcome to the Launch Pad Job Club website

Speaker: Melissa Victor Totah – “Networking for Introverts”
Networking for Introverts:
Does “networking” sound like a dirty word to you? Does the idea of interacting
with people you hardly know make your skin crawl? To be successful in the job
search, you already know that networking is essential. But if you are finding
it particularly difficult to get out there and make the necessary connections,
you may have an introverted personality. Although networking as an introvert
can sometimes feel unnatural, it does not have to be a problem.
In this session, we’ll be focusing on the special challenges faced by introverts
in the job search process, strategies for dealing with these challenges, and
methods of capitalizing on your hidden strengths. Both introverts and
extroverts are welcome!
