Coping and Connecting in Today’s Virtual World

When in the office, or on the job hunt, one of the things we all look for is a work-life balance. We crave a professional environment that speaks to who we are as individuals and who we believe are our most authentic selves. We pride ourselves on the lives we build that not only go beyond the 9-5 workday, but compliment it. Family gatherings, social outings with friends, and events we all look forward to are key elements to the lives we choose to live.

Managing that work-life balance shouldn’t stop now. As important as it is to keep up with schoolwork, the job search, and other professional development opportunities, it is also imperative
that we take the time to cope and connect with those who help aid in our balancing acts. Family dinners via Zoom, virtual game nights with friends, and the 3-mile walk you strive to take every day are all part of your growth process, even if it is not directly related to your professional development.

You have learned to navigate your online education and the virtual job search, so what is stopping you from integrating your connections in these newfound times? Where there is a will, there is a way!
