During these times of social distancing, isolation, businesses being shut down, and employees being laid off, it is hard for a lot of people to feel the same fulfillment they did just a few months ago and self-pity can set in quickly.
Perhaps you believe in the theory that there is nothing better for self-pity than you go out and help others. Volunteering is one of those opportunities that can take so many different forms. And when we relate this specifically to your career, knowledge sharing can not only be beneficial to your co-workers, networking groups, or community, but also to yourself.
Knowledge sharing in these times can be as simple as writing a short article, hosting a virtual networking event, spending some downtime working with a co-worker, or volunteering to talk on a topic to a group. And with virtual meetings, your fear of standing in front of a group and speaking just may improve by practicing talking to a webcam.
