CEO of ITtechExec Stephen Van Vreede encourages IT and tech professionals who self-identify as socially awkward to “hack” the networking experience and reap the benefits valuable personal connections can offer.
Rochester, NY — July 1, 2015 — Stephen Van Vreede, CEO of ITtechExec, published a new article titled “Networking for the Socially Awkward.” In the article, he explains how introverts can adjust their approach to traditional networking, strategizing ahead of time and managing expectations to gain as many benefits from networking as their socially adept counterparts.
Van Vreede says, “If you truly believe you ‘can’t’ be successful at networking, you probably won’t be. Networking is a skill just like anything else, and it takes practice and a little trial and error to get it right. And if you’re a tech geek, trial and error should be right up your alley, so think in terms of hacking the networking experience instead of lacking the skills.”
