After a year of WFH and an end of it in sight, many are starting to think about what the return to the office might look like.
The good news? Going back to work could mean the end of the open office plan and the return of offices with doors and divided spaces. That means you’ll no longer hear Dave in finance taking personal calls from his desk in the afternoon.
The possibly (bad) news? Handshakes are out. Purposeful head nods and well-coordinated “elbow bumps” are in.
For those of us lacking hand-eye coordination, time to start practicing.
But on the bright side, the return to the office means new opportunities. Check out this week’s fresh slate of job postings.
Forty percent of Pittsburgh’s new biotech startups were founded in the past five years — plus three other reasons why the city is on the verge of being a true life sciences hub.

Lawrenceville-based RE2 Robotics received $1.9 million in funding from the Department of Energy to help automate solar panel installation.
