Social Networking (2)

You know, I'm not such a big fan of company events myself.

I don't like all the organization involved. I don't like being told when and where to do things.

In fact, I don't even like big crowds of people.

But in today's society these are the ways we connect.

Social networking has boosted my career in so many ways.

Such as?

Well, take last week for example.

I was at a club when I saw this guy I hadn't seen in a long time.

He starts talking about his friend who is looking for a computer programmer.

And you got the job?

Yeah! The next day his friend called me and yesterday we signed a contract.

I'm going to be setting up their company website, and the money is pretty good.

So I guess what Brad's saying is that if you don't get out there and be seen, people might forget about you.

Yeah, I can sort of understand your point.

But how do I overcome my shyness? I'm just not very good with people.

I was super shy for years! Then one day I finally realized that the world isn't looking at me.

What do you mean?

In other words, sometimes we feel shy because we think people are looking at us and judging us.

But in reality, that's almost never the case.
