Introvert Interviewing for a Job

I usually don’t talk about being an introvert.  For one, it really doesn’t matter to me.  I am who I am and I can’t change that. No, I am not anti-social, in fact I love meeting people and hanging out. Yes I do prefer to be alone, sometime, and usually don’t have too much to talk about.  Am shy, clam, and reserve, but it just depends on the situation.

Job Interviewing would be one of those situations where I think my introvert personality can be effecting the interviewer decision whether to hire me or not. For one, when I speak in a calm tone during an interview.  I don’t show too much enthusiasm or excitement for the position or for the question being asked.  Especially for questions that ask you for details how you handle or dealt with a situation.  Am sorry, I am not a great story-teller so my answers are just simple.  Which I think can be mistaken that am not interested in the position and can’t I handle the job duties required.
