Kat Boogaard, staff writer at The Muse, joins us to talk about the surprisingly challenging aspects of working from home, plus she gives us her tips on how to tell if you’re the kind of person who could responsibly handle working remotely (if you have a predilection for watching Vine compilations on Youtube, working in an office might be better for you). Then, Liz and Rico help listeners Samantha, whose new job is being ruined by major changes at her company, and Amanda, who’s struggling to connect with her coworkers at her office in China. And we debate company cards, staying late, and calling your boss on vacation in today’s Mind the Gap.
You can read more of Kat’s writing on freelancing, working remote, and all sorts of topics at her website: https://katboogaard.com/
