WORKING FROM HOME IN A LONELY WINTER (3): STARTING A NEW JOB IN LOCKDOWN (WITH SOME HINTS FOR THE REST OF US AS WELL)
Some people are starting new jobs during lockdown. Many trainees and pupils are also embarking upon their careers. This post was actually suggested by someone doing just that – starting their (deferred) training contract early next year. There are now additional things to worry about beyond the normal concerns of new employment. The links here are aimed at people in that situation, however many of the points made apply just as much to those who are long established in the workplace. We also need to give some thought to the extra work that needs to be done by those who are working with the new arrivals, particularly trainees and pupils. These links give some general help and include a discussion the difficulties of starting a training contract during a pandemic.
