It’s tricky. Start 通过 being honest. 如果你 have a preexisting condition that makes you high risk for COVID complications, you may want to consider sharing it. Normally, I would never advise to share private health details with your boss. But, it may help them to understand why you need to continue to work from home.
The same applies for family situations. 如果你 have aging parents who you help to care for, share your concerns. 如果你 are being forced to home school your children, be up front about it. And, if your spouse has a high risk job where they work with the public, share your concerns about possibly infecting your office if you were to become infected.
概述您计划每天保留的时间。由于老板看不到你，认识你可能会有所帮助’re keep regular office hours from home. Set expectations around how you will communicate. 如果你 plan to check email during certain hours, let them know. 如果你’在会议期间可以进行视频聊天，并进行共享。而且，如果您可以通过短信联系我们，也可以这样说。老板觉得他们可以指望您的机会越多，他们越有可能允许您继续在家工作。
Remember, this is a crazy year. Frankly, every day feels more unbelievable than the last. 您r job during this time is to keep things calm and on track.
在事业方面，如果可以的话，请尝试继续朝着自己的正常目标前进。您可以做很多事情’t take much time. 如果你 have extra time, you might want to update your 领英 profile. Or, you may want to revamp your resume. Or, you might want to attend a seminar virtually. It’看看今年有多少个会议在线召开真的很有趣！
去年的这个时候，我写了一篇有关劳动节的专栏文章。它以这种方式开始。“Labor Day is a holiday that honors the American labor movement. It celebrates the development, productivity, and prosperity of the United States. And, it marks the unofficial end of summer. 如果你’re like most Americans, Labor Day is spent with loved ones and tasty food.”
In the meantime, begin to think about how you would like to celebrate this time next year. 如果你 would like to celebrate with a new job, this is the time to start looking. If the pandemic has made you realize you wish you were closer to loved ones, this is the time to make a plan.
如果你 want to move, look for jobs in your future city. Or, begin to look for jobs that allow remote work. Working from home is giving employees the flexibility they need to choose the lifestyle that works the best for them. 如果你’曾经希望搬回家，这可能是时候研究这个想法了。
如果你 find yourself with extra time, this is also a great time to network. Even when jobs aren’发布后，您可以与将来可能想要雇用您（或帮助您）的人联系。在LinkedIn上与老同事联系。然后，发送一条笔记，要求进行网络呼叫或接听电话。您可以通过电话或视频进行操作。尽管乍一看似乎很尴尬，但您可能为有多少人会为您腾出时间而感到惊讶。他们可能还会有额外的时间。
