If your employer allows it, try to gradually re-introduce yourself back to your normal place of work. Initially, visiting the workplace a few days a week and working from home on other days will help to give you time to adjust to the differences between the working environments. For many people, returning to the workplace will be a huge change, with more people, noise and travel time, and going back full-time may take some getting used to.

Although we are living in a digital age, many job openings are still not advertised publicly. Instead, they are filled through referrals and professional networking. In this article, we will share some tips on how to be an effective online networker.article111

Polish your online presence

Before you get started, make sure you update your profiles on the networking platforms that you are using. Upload a professional profile photo, write a compelling headline, job description and summary, and list your relevant achievements, experience and skills. When you are building your profile, try seeing it through the eyes of a potential employer. A long profile does not always mean a good one. Keep your information short and concise. A well-thought-out profile can be more powerful than you think.

In addition, do not forget to review your other social media channels. Potential employers and recruiters often look up candidates on social media, so it might be wise to delete any controversial posts and check your privacy settings. Search your name online to make sure you have not missed anything.
