I’m currently interview and I’m nervous about going to a new job that is hybrid or remote at the moment. A big reason I was successful in my current position was by earning people respect through having a good attitude, doing whatever work was asked of me, and showing that I genuinely care/want to learn. I feel like without being in person it will be much harder to develop these personal relationships with coworkers and earn their trust. Am I overthinking this?
