So I started a new job in April (during lockdown), and it’s really been challenging at times trying to make friends. I’m constantly the one reaching out and making connections, while the people who have been there for a longer time are just putting their heads down and trying to get through it. xD I’ve been organising biweekly after work video calls for socialising, and joined the Culture Club to try and be part of team activities etc, and messaging people with anecdotes and jokes, but I still feel very isolated from the team.
For those who have started new roles, do you feel like you’ve made friends in the company? What have you been doing to build connections and really become part of the team?
And people who have always worked remote, how do you do it also?
