Humor: The Zoom Rules (How to Make Sure You Still Have a Job When You Are Allowed to Return to Work)
Six months ago, the majority of us had never had a single meeting online for anything. And in the matter of two weeks, online meetings became as ubiquitous as making coffee or brushing our teeth when we get up in the morning.
