The Introvert’s Guide to the Job Hunt is a new guide developed by Amma to walk the apprehensive candidate through the process of first, destigmatizing introversion; then, presenting a series of activities designed to plan for a potentially draining and daunting process ahead.
With guidance on how to craft a captivating cover letter, manage energy on the day of an interview, and compose a winning thank you note after the interview, this guide seeks to empower the introverted job searcher and reassure them their skills, assets, and gifts are advantageous in the workforce.
Expanding upon the advice Amma first shared in the second edition of The I’s Have It, Hiring Quiet Talent is a guide designed to assist those in hiring roles, in developing and implementing “introvert-friendly” practices throughout the hiring process. From tips on evaluating written content, to behavioral norms to set during interviews, to the metrics by which we assess “excitement,” “readiness,” and “engagement.”
Advice on how to present oneself authentically and naturally in the search process means little if those evaluating criteria aren’t sure how to read it; as such, Hiring Quiet Talent seeks to help employers and hiring managers accurately assess the competency, affect, and potential of this often misunderstood demographic of applicant.
