Fix virtual coffee catchups with your teammates as a start. Idk what firm you are in but in mine there’s a very strong culture of informal coffee meetings.
Start with seniors on I’m your project / beach assignments. Try to take up some co-curricular activities and use that again to get to know more people. Attend firm events and find common ground with people there. Eg if you like what someone said just drop them a note saying “hey I really resonated with your point about xyz , was wondering if i can have a coffee with you to get to know you more ...”
last option is always cold calling. Can try going through a middleman in that case.

Does anyone know of any remote contract jobs in auditing? Specifically, risk management, compliance or internal auditing? I’m able to work 20+ hours a week. I’m a detailed-oriented person and and a great communicator. I also have a lot of experience in presentation design and enjoy doing those a lot. I would prefer a contract job receiving a 1099 and am not interested in being a w-2 employee. Please let me know if any of you have any referrals. Thank you and I appreciate any tips you can give.
