Here, professionals from across the country share what they wish they’d known about going back to an office after working from home — the pain points, the perks, the strategies they used to acclimate to their new routines.

 
# Is working remotely a bad idea for people who are already introverts?

# How To Write A Kick-Ass Technical Resume
 

Writing a resume is hard. Yet even today, most job applications require resumes to be considered for a position. The true goal behind a resume is to market yourself. You are your best advocate.
