COVID-19 and the shift to remote work (and remote life) has caused professional networking to become completely virtual. While remote networking has always been an option, now it’s our only option. Here are our top five tips for successful networking while remote.

Since most people are working remotely and don’t have a ton of extracurriculars going on, now is the perfect time to re-connect.

2. Utilize LinkedIn
