Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about being shy in a new job:
I am currently an intern at a Department of Social Services office. I just graduated from college with a Social Work degree. I do my job well, I know I do. But, I am having trouble relating to people at work. I am one of those people who are very smart, but have trouble interacting with people on a personal level. I am not rude or arrogant, just quiet and shy. When interacting with other workers, I stick mostly to asking questions, like a good intern should. I am worried that no matter how well I do my job, I am in the wrong field because I don’t really relate well to the other workers. It is like High School in that place!
