After the COVID-19 situation, hybrid working has become the new normal and everyone has adapted to remote working – many companies also started implementing Hybrid Work, per month or per week.

And last but not least, when looking for a job – be a proactive job seeker, instead of a reactive job seeker. What are the differences?
