The Birthplace of Apra
Social media is overwhelming at times, so I wanted to post here and encourage our community members. Share your experience as a remote employee or ask questions that only Minnesotans could understand!!!
What is overwhelming for me right now is the sheer number of additional meetings on my calendar! Folks at work used to just leave me alone and let me do my job. Now everyone (to be fair, not everyone) wants to have all sorts of "check-in" meetings. My day-to-day work hasn't changed, and I'm used to working remotely (also, as an introvert, it's my d*mn JAM). When am I supposed to get all my project done if I'm in Teams meetings or chats or calls or emails what feels like constantly?! /rant
The biggest way that I am challenged with in my work is the rapidity of the changes and new needs that have come up within our Advancement department. With everyone working remotely and my boss working 24/7 managing these changes and delegation of tasks, it has been impossible to stay up to date with these changes as they happen almost instantaneously. The way I am currently managing this is to ask only important questions as how these changes might affect my work or what information I need to provide and to be extra patient in waiting for answers.
