Started a new job in Jan and just as I got project work the pandemic hit. Feeling extremely overwhelmed and as if I have no help since we are all working remote now. Any suggestions or feedback on how to improve my situation? the other consultant on my project is sometimes helpful, when it’s convenient for them but I feel really annoying and as if I need my hand held since it’s my first project. Any suggestions or feedback would be helpful
