Don't have time to job-hunt?

In today's fast-paced world, finding time for job searching and career planning while working full-time can be a daunting task, especially during the pandemic with remote and hybrid work. In this episode, I address this challenge and offer practical solutions to make the most of your time while working remotely.

I discussed the concept of asynchronous work, which refers to communication and tasks that don't require an immediate response. I have also shared some of my favorite project management software and video messaging tools to facilitate asynchronous communication, which can be just as productive and even more efficient than synchronous communication.

I also highlighted the benefits of using calendar scheduling systems, messaging apps like Microsoft Teams, and implementing synchronous communication when necessary. You will also learn the importance of setting guidelines for effective asynchronous and synchronous communication to ensure that everyone on the team is on the same page.

Overall, I offered valuable insights and practical advice for anyone struggling to balance job searching and career planning while working full-time. Whether you need time to rest and relax or pursue other interests, the tips I provided in this episode can help you make the most of your time while working remotely.
