Job hunting for introverts

February 11, 2009: 7:11 PM ET

If networking drives you nuts and you tend to think a while before you respond to interviewers' questions, you may find a job search especially difficult, writes Fortune's Anne Fisher in her Feb. 12 Ask Annie column. But introverts have certain advantages, too -- like a tendency to think before you speak -- that you can use to improve your odds, she writes. Do you consider yourself an introvert or an extrovert? Do you agree that job hunting is easier for extroverts? If you're introverted, have you got any tips on what worked for you in your last job hunt? Would you rather work for an introvert or an extrovert?
