Gloria’s Answer

Hi Elizabeth,

I am an introvert who ended up being a corporate trainer. I have taught groups of 30+ people that I did not many times. Being an introvert can be challenging in social settings with strangers, but it is not a bad thing. If you want to learn more about what introverts can bring to any situation, you should read Quiet by Susan Cain. It is a book created to help extroverts understand introverts. Oddly, it helped me learn more about myself as well.

Your challenge here will be what you want to do as a job, no matter what the challenge. I know from experience that loving what you do as a job will help you get through any challenges at work. Work is sometimes hard, even when you love it. But loving it is what will push you through. You mentioned music and the piano. What careers do you see there? Playing in an orchestra or band? Maybe you can use your skills to teach others how to play? There is even something called music therapy that would allow you to use your musical skills in other ways.

Michael’s Answer

If you're asking about yourself, I would suggest working to identify what you value and what your skills are. Ideally, your career will be a combination of both of those though, to begin with, it may just focus on one. Think about what motivates you to work hard (enjoy a subject, collaborating on a team, etc.) then research what jobs perform that type of work. LinkedIn, Glassdoor, and Salary.com are good starting points for identifying jobs and roles.
