Start a Conversation Across the Globe

Nathan CovertProduct Designer at Covert Design

To start with the cons of networking during the pandemic (outside of the obvious health crisis), you lose the connection that happens in person. I loved meeting people at coffee shops and offline events.

 

But the pros might actually outweigh the cons. I had to switch jobs during the pandemic, and initially, I thought that due to the economic shake-up and the hiring freezes, this would be difficult. Instead, I ended up having 4-5 remote interviews a week, and the best part is that they were for companies based all over the world. I had interviews in London, New York, Los Angeles and even Malaysia.

 

Remote work made it easier to network and start conversations across the globe.
