Curious what firms are doing to keep people socializing during COVID. I miss my coworkers but I'm sick of zoom calls.

So there are a few associates I consider my friends at work and instead of trying to keep up this weird zoom socialization which seems forced, we just call each other and shoot the shit. Don’t forget that is an option! As far as organized activities? I don’t know. There was a wine and cheese tasting that went well. Another firm had a ricotta making class. Otherwise the firm has organized a broadway musical night, a magician and a few interesting lectures but you didn’t interact with people for those.

Hey guys! Went to college with full intention of getting into medical school. Graduated right before the pandemic which gave time to think long and hard about going to med school. Decided I was doing it for all the wrong reasons, and am trying to pivot into consulting. I’ve reached out to hundreds on LinkedIn, which lead to a few referrals, but have heard nothing back from any firms. Anyone willing to help me out with some advice and guidance?
