Work Parties: To do or not to do?

I tend towards being somewhat shy and introverted. I'm not a misanthrope, but I find long periods of human interaction draining. This fact is one of the main reasons that I avoided work parties at my old job. The other reason was because I did not like 50% of my coworkers, and the idea of hanging out with them for hours was...well, an unpleasant prospect. I don't believe that not attending these parties damaged my relationship with my coworkers or my career (I don't think anyone noticed my absence, and it was a part-time job). However, I feel that attending work parties at my full-time job would be important for my career/relationships. What would be the consequences if I avoided them altogether? Should I make it a goal to attend at least 1,2,3.... What if I don't like the majority of my coworkers? What if I don't like any of them? Finally, what if my job keeps serving foods which I'm allergic to? Would it be weird if I didn't eat anything?

What are the pros and cons of being a HR manager?

Is it emotionally draining resolving conflict, solving problems, etc. Is it challenging meeting new people and the constant interaction? Finally, can you be fired if you a string of bad apples?

How to get a letter of recommendation when I'm a shy student?

I'm a decent student who occasionally contributes to the conversation and I get A's and B's in school, but I don't think I have developed a close relationship with any of my teachers. Speaking up in class is hard for me and it often feels like I'm being drowned out but other students. I'm currently a Junior who is doing remote learning so I'm wondering if there is anything I can do to help the process go smoother when it comes time for me to get a LOR. Thank you :) #student #general #everyone #introvert #letterofrec #networking

How important is it to be an extrovert to become a doctor?

I want a career in the medical field. I love school and am very interested in the sciences and medicine/biology in particular. I am also shy and not sure I have the 'people skills' needed to become a doctor, which is what I believe I want to do. I need to know if I am better off pursuing something else. #medical-practice #medicine #medschool #introvert
