With millions of businesses shifting to work-from-home policies due to the pandemic, employees, including young professionals just starting out, have had to quickly adapt to remote work and its impact on their careers, work-life balance, and mental wellbeing.
Young professionals are a hungry breed of employee that will not stop at anything to climb the career ladder and obtain success. Unfortunately, this hard-working nature is also a double-edged sword that can end their career if they’re not careful. Overworking yourself in a remote environment can create plenty of unhealthy habits, which eventually lead to poor mental health and a feeling that you’ve hit a roadblock in your career. With few companies hiring at this time, young professionals have found themselves trapped in their home offices by the effects of the COVID-19 virus.
