The Introvert’s Guide to Job Search Success

If you’re an introvert, chances are job searching makes you uncomfortable. Not that anyone really likes to look for work. Most people would rather skip this process if they could, but for introverts that sentiment seems to count double. If this describes you, a word of caution: You could find yourself saying yes to the first thing that comes along—whether or not it’s the best job for you—just for the relief of being done with your search. That’s not a great reason to cement a decision that will impact the career you’ve worked so hard to build. So, what’s the better plan? Take a few minutes now to read about each part of the job search process and tips to improve your strategy for those steps. As with other life challenges, you’ll likely find that practice and small successes in the early steps will set the stage for overcoming your reluctance. And even if parts of the process still make you uncomfortable, now you’ll have the confidence to know you can implement strategies to get the result you want.

Networking: Mastering the art of small talk

We’re starting with the part of job search that makes introverts cringe: Chatting for the sake of chatting. Of course, it’s really chatting for the sake of bonding and getting to know each other, but that doesn’t make it any more comfortable to do. These tips for managing small talk will help not only with your job search, but with other situations where you need to be both social and professional at the same time.

Start the conversation yourself.

If you jump in first, the other person will not guess that you’re uncomfortable. This will be easier if you think of a few topics in advance. As you’d guess, politics and other polarizing subjects should be ruled out, but noncontroversial medical topics or points of local interest will serve you well.

Show interest in others.

If you know the names of your networking partners in advance of the conversation, you can look them up online to gather clues about their interests and background. Then you can introduce a topic that

takes the spotlight off you: “I saw from your hospital profile that you trained in Quebec. How did you decide to come here for your fellowship?”

Keep the ball rolling.

Small-talk conversations don’t need to go on and on, but you should strive for at least two or three volleys before lapsing into silence. That’s about the minimum needed if the conversation is going to take off. To aid in this goal, you’ll need to respond when the other person speaks, ideally with something that encourages more conversation, such as “I didn’t know that” or “I’d be interested in hearing more about that.”

Come around to the point.

If there’s something you need to know from your conversational partner, you’ll have to take the lead to ensure that happens. After a couple of warm-up points, it’s fine to jump in with your direct request: “I’m glad we’re talking because there’s something I need to ask you. I’ve been thinking about working at a hospital like the one you’re at, and I’d be interested in your perspective on what that’s been like for you.”

Job leads: Personalizing an impersonal process

It may be counter-intuitive, but it’s not always smart for an introverted person to rely on electronic processes and email correspondence when conducting a job search. Although these methods are efficient, they can become a crutch for anyone who feels uncomfortable in conversations with people they don’t know. Worse, too many rounds of emails and online applications could harm the introvert’s confidence or actual performance in interviews. The solution? Use online tools strategically, but not exclusively.

Here’s an example: Suppose you want to be a hospitalist in the southwestern United States. It’s logical to watch the job postings online at the AAN Career Center, and to set up a Job Alert with your criteria so that new listings come to your inbox automatically. That’s smart use of the technology. But now what? If you simply complete an online application or send your CV automatically, you are being efficient but you’re also ceding control of the timing for the next interaction. You likely will

be contacted at some random point in the coming weeks and perhaps be put on the spot if someone starts a “soft interview” by calling after you apply. Instead, consider that if you’re the one making the first call, you can control the conversation and the timing.

Another way to use the postings to your advantage is to watch them for several weeks while you discern the similarities and differences in what employers are requesting. This is a good strategy for anyone, but for the introvert it’s especially helpful to have a heads-up on where a conversation with the recruiter might go. And speaking of recruiters, here’s a great way to personalize the process of following leads: Build a relationship with one or two recruiters representing your specialty or desired employers, then connect with them for assistance or advice when you see a position you favor. By feeling more connected to a few individuals, you’ll feel more confident sending a text to clarify a point or making a quick call when you need information.

Letters and CVs: Providing the “warm” details

Does your CV read like a factual list of educational experiences, with a few publications and presentations thrown in? That’s the bare minimum and it’s fine—if you don’t mind playing 20 questions with each and every interviewer. Consider that the more information you provide on your materials, the more you can “warm up” your in-person interaction later. This benefits you by taking some of the conversational burden off your shoulders during interviews and phone conversations. As a second advantage, it gives the interviewer or recruiter a head start on knowing you more fully. A primary rule for success in a job search is that people hire people they like—and they like people they feel they know something about.

Here are some of the things you can add to your CV to help the interviewer get to know you through your paperwork: An initial summary or profile providing a few sentences about your goals and interests; job descriptions for your fellowships and residency that give the scope of your work and details about your responsibilities; a section for committees or other non-clinical duties; a section for volunteer activities; and a section listing a few

of your personal interests. Does this seem like a lot of information that isn’t strictly necessary? That’s exactly the point. These are things you’re going to be asked in the interview, so having them already represented on your CV gives you a chance to influence and anticipate the specifics of the conversation. Instead of being asked, “Tell us what you do with your free time,” you might instead be asked, “How did you get interested in playing rugby?” For an introvert, answering a specific question is often less stressful than being given an open-ended query.

You can apply the same strategy to cover letters by providing an example of your training or experience that relates to criteria from the posting. When you do this, instead of simply saying “I meet all the criteria requested,” you give the interviewer something specific to focus on. Again, having a hint about what the conversation might cover (because you essentially planted the topic) lets you feel more confident.

Shrug off your worries

One quality many introverts share is the tendency to think things through very deeply. This is obviously a good practice when it comes to patient care or other medical duties. But it actually can be a hindrance to process oriented tasks such as a job search. When you think too deeply or long about job search steps, the result tends to be inertia.

Once your initial research and strategizing are complete, there’s little added value to rethinking things. You’ll need to trust that your preparation will be enough, and that you can find a way to recover if it turns out it wasn’t. As the saying goes, the only way forward is through. Might as well jump in and get started; after awhile, you just might discover you’re better at this than you thought you’d be.

Extra Credit: Lunch Meetings and Tours

Most candidates, introverts or not, can find a way through standard interviews without too much added strain. That’s because the agenda is in someone else’s hands and the candidate can revert to simply answering questions if it becomes too difficult to generate a conversational give-and-take. But that Q&A safety net dissolves when the format

changes to a lunch meeting or hospital tour. As an introvert, if you can prepare yourself to survive these events, you’ll be ready for anything. These tips will help:

When possible, review the restaurant’s menu online in advance of the meeting. This gives you the opportunity to make a logical choice (no finger food, not the most expensive item, etc.) without the pressure of having others watch you decide.

Don’t become overly absorbed in your meal. For introverts, it’s tempting to be eyes-down when you have a plateful of food to focus on. Resist that urge and keep your attention on the others, even if it means not finishing your food.

Enjoy the tour without struggling to converse with everyone you meet. You’ll be doing well if you can say something short and positive to most of the people you’re introduced to (“I’m impressed with how bright and sunny this wing is.”). Anything beyond that is definitely extra credit. 

Is It Time to Look for a New

Job? Six Ways to Know, and Six Steps to Take

A lot is written about job search for new graduates, and that’s a good thing. After a dozen or more years of education and intensive training, the last thing most residents and fellows feel prepared for is CV writing or interviewing with an HR panel.

Still, if you’re an experienced neurologist ready to find new work, you may be looking back on those days with nostalgia. The confusion you felt then may be nothing compared to what you’re experiencing now. For one thing, it’s difficult to know if you should be looking for work at all. Unlike a new graduate, neurologists already in the workforce generally don’t “need” to find a new job. Unless there’s a compelling catalyst, such as a pending relocation for a spouse’s career, a working neurologist could stay right where they are and never actually move forward on a change.

Following are six ways to know if it’s time to switch things up, and six steps to take if you decide to move forward.

It’s probably time to seek new work if...

...if you know you’ll be relocating.

Some moves can be made without a job change, but many can’t. If you’ve already explored options for staying in your current role, such as telecommuting or creative scheduling that lets you fly back to your new home for extended weekends, you may have to conclude that it won’t be possible to keep this position after you move your household.

...if your current employer is expanding.

Even if you’re happy with your current position, ignoring new opportunities for growth when they open up in front of you isn’t smart career management. When you learn of your current employer’s plans, you’d be wise to initiate a conversation with an administrator whose judgment—and confidentiality—you can trust. An early exploration doesn’t have to result in action if

you choose otherwise, but a late exploration might mean there’s no option left for you to consider.

...if you’re tired of what you’re doing.

You don’t need your medical training to know that burnout is real. When you start feeling reluctant to head into work or stop feeling interested in the patients or projects assigned to you, something needs to change. Whether you make a switch to something else with your current employer, or you move on altogether, this is one of those situations that probably won’t resolve on its own.

...if you’re ready for a new challenge.

For some doctors, the variety inherent in seeing new patients or conducting new research brings enough challenge to keep things fresh. But others may feel as if they’re on a treadmill in terms of having mastered the primary tasks or tools in their current role. When this happens, you’re wise to pay attention. Not feeling challenged can morph into burnout or other negative feelings that are counterproductive for your career.

Six steps to take when preparing to change

...if you never meant to stay this long in the first place.

Did you take a fellowship in stroke and then find yourself in a general neurology setting for your first job? On its face, that can be an excellent career move, particularly if you’ve been paying down loans while also gaining good experience and knowledge. But as time passes and you move further from your specialized training, it makes sense to check in on your career path. If too much time passes, it could be difficult to return to your original goal.

...if something changes in your workplace that you can’t tolerate.

Whether the new element is a set of policies or administrators that clash with your values, or a change in the workload, or even something that impacts your salary—the nature of the change only matters in terms of your problem-solving as you look for ways to accommodate the new situation. If you find that you can’t make peace with how things are shifting, you may have to be the one to make a shift.

jobs

Define what you want next.

If your reason for changing jobs is to leave a situation that you don’t like, you have a problem: Escape is not a career plan. Unless you take time to dig into your career and life goals, you risk hopping from one tenuous situation to another. Neurologists who are making the change for positive reasons are not excused from this exercise, by the way. For any job seeker, in any profession, the truth remains: Defining your job goal shortens your search while helping ensure you get something you truly want.

Set a timeline

Everyone knows that deadlines are motivating. For residents and fellows anticipating graduation in a few months, the sense of deadline is built-in, but for those already in the workforce, an opposite force is at play—inertia. To avoid having your process drag on (especially the initial decision), it’s helpful to have at least a loose timeline for its completion and the steps in between. As a guideline, anywhere from six to 12 months would be a very common length for the process of choosing and starting new work.

Review your contract

If you are under a non-compete, or any other stricture covering your current or future work, the best time for a refresher on the specifics is before you launch an outbound search. Even for internal roles, your contract may play a part in determining what’s possible and on what kind of timeline.

Revise your CV to reflect your experience and goals

Want to know the most consistent mistake made by experienced doctors when searching for new work? That would be conducting the search as if they were new graduates. The job search is one of those processes that must flex with the candidate. As you gain experience and credibility in your field, you need to update your processes to be more sophisticated. While it might be evident that this would include a higher level of networking, it’s easy to under-estimate the power of a well-revised CV. In this day of electronic search, a CV that defines the contributions you would make (and not just the factual outline of the places you’ve worked) can act as an advance agent to increase an employer’s interest—while possibly opening their pocketbook a bit wider.

Look internally, if possible

If your reason for changing jobs is not tied to leaving this employer or location, then why not poke around inside your organization before making an outward move? If you find something that suits, you’ll have the advantage of uninterrupted benefits and a platform of immediately relevant experience to build on. Caution is advised, of course, as you’ll need to determine if tipping your hand could result in any negative feelings or repercussions in your current role.

Get help for an

external search

If your course for leaving is certain, you’ll soon find yourself in an interesting bind. The more in-demand you might be, the more you’ll wish for privacy in making your inquiries. After all, it’s not a great business-builder to have your current patients switch doctors after hearing you “might” not be there next year.

The need for confidentiality, combined with a limited pool of free time, is enough to say you should probably engage the help of outside recruiters or consultants. To find one, you can start by asking for a referral from former colleagues who have made a move. Or, reach out directly to a recruiter specializing in the placement of neurologists. However you handle this, remember that your goal is not to give someone else carte blanche to “place” you. Rather, think of this as

dividing up the duties, where the person acting as your agent helps locate initial leads and then contacts potential employers on your behalf in a confidential manner. You’ll still need to set aside time for interviews and tours, not to mention research to assure yourself this is an organization you want be part of. When it comes to making the decision, only you can determine if the role will match what you want next in your career. 

Top 10 Ways to Overcome Application Hesitation

Perhaps this has happened to you: You go onto the AAN Neurology Career Center job board and start perusing the postings. Before long, you’ve identified a position that sounds pretty good. You read the information with growing interest, your cursor hovering over “Apply Now”…and hovering…and hovering. And then you move on to another position, or perhaps you leave the site.

What just happened? The diagnosis is simple: You’re suffering from Application Hesitation. Despite your best intentions, you’re stopping yourself from completing a few short steps that could lead to an interesting new job.

So that explains what’s happening, but not why. Here are some of the reasons people hesitate to apply for jobs, even when they’re very interested. If you see any that describe your situation, the prescription provided will help you overcome the barrier.

10 reasons for Application Hesitation, and the prescribed antidotes

1. Fearing that clicking Apply will open the floodgates. You may have had the experience of answering an online ad and suddenly finding your inbox filling up with unwanted solicitations. That’s a reasonable fear with other job boards, but the Academy sees you as a valued member, not a product to sell to advertisers, so your information is kept confidential.

Antidote: Click Apply. You’re not likely to receive unwanted email from employers you contact on the Career Center’s job board but if you do, just opt out.

2. Fearing that applying could initiate a process you don’t have time for. It’s one thing to complete a brief application process, but another to fit conversations and meetings into your schedule. You might be concerned that applying will obligate you to steps you can’t commit to right now.

Antidote: If your application results in contact from a recruiter or employer, simply explain your schedule conflicts in a brief response. In most cases, they’ll be able to work with you to fit your calendar.

3. Unprepared for the interview process. Scheduling interviews may not be your concern so much as actually participating in them. It may have been awhile since you’ve interviewed for employment as opposed to matching for a training program. Indeed, perhaps you’ve never done that as a neurologist, at least not yet.

Antidote: You’re going to have to cross this bridge sometime, so why not now? Go ahead and apply, then get busy. You’ll find helpful articles in the Neurology Career Center to help you prep for interviews.

4. Not feeling certain the job will be a good fit. This is one of those closed-loop problems. Without more information, you don’t know if this job would be right for you—but because you don’t know, you hesitate to apply, which is how you would get more information.

Antidote: Apply. Determining fit is something that happens during conversations with the recruiter or employer, which is what happens after they receive your application.

5. Not feeling clear on your overall career direction. Of course, you know you’ll be working as a neurologist, but you may be feeling less clarity about practicing in a subspecialty, or what balance you want between research and teaching, or any number of other issues relating to your career path. This can lead to a kind of window-shopping process where you review postings in the hopes of finding that clarity, without ever moving forward.

Antidote: Go ahead and take a spin through the postings without clicking apply. Then collect your favorites and apply to the two that appeal to you most. Just starting the conversations with recruiters may be enough to help sort through your priorities, but if it isn’t, you can repeat the exercise. Eventually you will have enough information to make good comparisons between different options.

6. Not feeling certain you’re qualified for the job. Some job postings are very detailed while others leave a lot to the imagination. In both cases, it’s easy for a candidate to feel intimidated and uncertain about being qualified.

Antidote: Deciding whether you’re qualified is actually not your job―it’s the job of the recruiter or employer. When you feel interested but uncertain, go ahead and apply. Even if you’re not qualified, you may receive information about other positions for which your skills are a better match.

7. Not wanting to waste anyone’s time. This is a cousin to the issue of feeling unqualified or uncertain about what the position requires. You hate to start something just to have it fizzle out when you could have saved everyone the trouble to begin with.

Antidote: Again, let the recruiters make that determination; it’s their job. If you asked them, they would almost certainly tell you they’d rather spend the time with you than not, even if the situation doesn’t end with a match.

8. Finding something that’s “off” in the posting. Perhaps you’re not certain about the location, or you’d prefer a different mix of duties, or you’re concerned the salary won’t work.

Antidote: This is a case where you can assume too much. As in, assuming you understand the position from such a short description, or assuming nothing

about the position can be changed. Applying will give you entrée to the conversations that will give you the facts you need.

9. Not feeling certain about building a career with this employer. How do you know this hospital or practice is well-managed, or that you’ll be treated well by them? How can you be sure they’re growing, or will help you manage your career well?

Antidote: In truth, you might never feel complete certainty about a potential employer before you sign on. Instead of setting certainty as a goal, vow to do your due diligence before accepting an offer by talking with others or researching websites for reviews by other employees. In the meantime, go ahead and apply, or the question will be moot.

10. Not feeling ready to commit to an offer. You may be checking the postings a few months or even years early, in terms of when your training will be finished. Or, you may be right on time, but still feeling hesitant about starting this next chapter in your career.

Antidote: Ask any recruiter and they’re likely to tell you they’d rather hear from you early than not at all. Go ahead and apply so you can start the conversation about this role or employer. If you’re ahead of schedule, you can say so and let the recruiter decide whether to keep moving forward. You may be surprised to learn that some opportunities can be locked in a long time in advance, and sometimes include a signing bonus or other financial incentive. But no worries—if you’re not ready to make that commitment, you only need to say so.

So…should you apply?

Yes! You really should. Your reasons for hesitating are valid, but also permeable. That is, although each of these 10 reasons makes sense, none of them preclude you from contacting the employer or recruiter. By clicking to apply, you begin a conversation and a relationship that could lead to the best job of your career. And even if it doesn’t, you’ll be more connected and informed than if you had sat on the sidelines. So, go ahead: Stop hovering your cursor and Apply Now. 
