Whether your boss tells you or not, they are always monitoring your performance, especially in the beginning when they are considering how technically good you are with your work, and how consistent you are in following through on your work.
In remote roles, communication is key. As your boss or team is trying to establish how you work together, maintaining consistent communication patterns is important and over-communicating in the beginning is not only encouraged, but appreciated.
work done last minute
Doing work last minute, when combined with sporadic communication just makes your boss think you’re a slacker and only do the minimum to not get fired.
Missing regular meetings, whether they are seemingly useful or not, sends a message to your team that you value your priorities over teamwork, collaboration or trust building.
