Just because we are all practicing social distancing does not mean you cannot network with people in your industry. Networking will just look a little different; you can have a virtual chat or conversation over the phone. It can be done! Think about how happy a ‘newly remote worker’ would be to receive a thoughtful email requesting a quick phone conversation – make new connections and revive old ones. Network with recruiters/hiring managers and alumni through various online tools.
