I’m really struggling with this, because this absolutely reflects my working-from-home experiences, but much of it is also true of my actual office. I have my own office and do very solitary work. They’re so flexible and expect so little of me that it sometimes feels less like a bummer to stay home and not talk to anyone and not get anything done than to go to an office and not talk to anyone and not get anything done.
Wow, I really need a new job.
(To be fair, my job pays well, has allowed me to work full-time while partially paying for me to go to grad school full-time, and does positive things for the world).
I’m trying to think about whether I, a smart/academic person, was never really well-suited for a desk job in the first place.
Anyone have tips for figuring out how much work gets done by talking when interviewing for jobs?
