If you’re shy a person, one of the times when that shyness is at its peak is when you’re in a new environment. For example, when you’re starting a new job. Your first year in a full-time job after NSS can be a bit nerve-wracking, but these hacks will help you survive throughout the year, and things can only get easier after that.

Nobody likes getting up too early, we get that, but when you’re in a new job as a person who’s shy, getting to the office earlier in the mornings can help you get more comfortable with the environment. If you’re early enough, you would essentially be alone and have to comfortably acclimate to your surroundings.

Join Conversations That Have Already Started

If you’re uncomfortable starting conversations with your new colleagues, you can try jumping in when there’s already a conversation going on instead. You can learn more about the people that you’re working with through these kinds of conversations and get a feel for the company culture.

Take Your Time Getting To Know People

Most shy people are less anxious about talking to people that they’ve gotten comfortable around. You don’t have to immediately rush into long epic talks with your new coworkers but even getting to know the people that you’re around slowly, accumulates until eventually, you have full-fledged relationships.
