How are all you juniors doing?! Those employed and working from home. Has Covid affected your work routines positively and/or negatively? How do you see your position changing upon return?

It's really hard to not be able to get the same level of feedback/mentorship at the office. On top of that I don't really feel like I've made close work friends yet so it's hard to reach out to people since I only started semi-recently It seems really hard on everyone and my agency is being patient and open. A lot is changing right now and I'm grateful for leadership that is trying to be responsible and understanding, and very very grateful to have a job. I have a lot of friends who are looking now and it doesn't seem easy. my heart goes out to everyone who has had their internships canceled and interviews postponed

I actually just started a new position this week. I interned at the company and they wanted to keep me on, however I’m in a new department than the one I interned in. It’s a bit weird since my managers are all swamped with helping clients respond to the pandemic. They’re not really able to offer me training remotely so I’m finding it hard to be helpful or productive. I’m also not sure how to offer my assistance without being a bother or flooding their inbox during this time. Hoping when we all get back in the office I’m able to smoothly transition but it has me worried.

Will echo what CW1 said, very grateful to still have a job but it’s certainly still a lot harder to get feedback and mentorship

Started a new/first job and I feel like I’m constantly making mistakes. Trying to cut my self some slack but feel like I didn’t have any type of mentorship coming in and being WFH so soon after staring and dealing with covid social issues has me feeling like I’m not cut out for this. Having a hard time.
