How to be Successful in Your New Remote Job (Career Series #90)

Join us as we welcome back Colleen Torell, a career management consultant with Keystone Partners. She will discuss how to be successful in your new remote job.

Thursday, May 13 from 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Many employers dramatically transformed their recruiting and new-employee integration practices over the last year to fill mission-critical roles.  Human Resources, technology teams and hiring managers partner to run an effective interview process and create onboarding plans to get new hires started with the basics, but what should the prospective new hire be prepared to do as a partner in the process?  We’ll discuss how to:

  • Assess culture without the benefit of stepping into the office
  • Start gathering research to build your own personal onboarding plan starting with the first interview
  • Navigate ambiguity around eventual return-to-office plans
  • Accelerate your integration into the larger work ecosystem
