Speaking from my own personal experience as a computer programmer I totally agree that having a mentor and role model made my job easier. It is comforting to know you have someone to look up and seek advise about your work. It is also important to be friends with your co-workers makes your work and environment pleasant.
The industry does not seem to be focused on solving this problem but I think the tide is turning
@DazeWork I am hoping for that, more mentors...
I agree @anastaciafisher, I do need a mentor in my work. It can help boost my confidence in my work.
@TooShyShy I can relate to your situation. There are times I am also doubting myself to the task assigned to me especially if my colleagues are quizzing me. I wonder if there is a meet up group we can join that can help boost our confidence.
@heartgates0786 the truth is most of the times I rarely talk in our the meeting and contribute to any discussion. I also avoid doing presentation for our team. My too much shyness is hampering career in the company. I am really trying my best to fight my shyness but I am always paralyzed by my shyness.
@TooShyShy I can relate to your situation I was also too shy to speak my mind in front of a crowd. But I have to buckle up and confront my fears since I taking up my masters. Maybe you can practice presenting with your close friends or in front of a mirror. I also have to look up at my past and really asked myself why am I so shy what started it all. Then I remember one summer vacation I spent with group of who I taught then are my friends but they always left me behind and spent most of time alone that summer. After that I become an introvert and spent most of my time reading and being at home. Good luck to you and I hope you will overcome your shyness and be a confident working girl.
