In a never-in-our-lifetime milestone, the number of Americans who have filed for unemployment surpassed the 40 million mark with 1 in 4 workers now becoming jobless over the last two months. And Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci has recently shared that a second wave of the coronavirus outbreak in the U.S. could happen.

In our post-crisis world, many things will never be the same—including jobs and how we work. In fact, career experts predict that for many American workers it will be a dawning of a whole new employment marketplace.

To learn more about this shift in our workplaces and the new manner in which millions of people will work, I was excited to catch up with Joe Mullings about his thoughts on what he calls the “Interim Economy.”
