In the face of COVID-19, the world is facing challenges that many of us have not experienced in our lifetimes. Companies have adopted new policies and procedures—like shelter-in-place and remote interviewing—that just a few months ago would have seemed unimaginable.

Processes, systems, the way we communicate, work, and engage with one another is all going to change.
Remote working, online education and video streaming have scaled tremendously, while movie theaters, schools and traditional offices close their doors. Some will probably never reopen in a world where pretty much everything has shifted from real to virtual.
