Interviews are daunting for anyone -- but for introverts they can seem especially frightening.

Introverts can be labeled as "shy," "nervous" or even "anti-social," when in fact they just like to get things done in their own way. They have their own set of superpowers that can be beneficial during interviews. For example, these individuals have a knack for developing deep one-on-one connections with people. They're good at listening and responding insightfully, making thorough and thoughtful decisions.
