Struggling to make friends and connect with the team in Onboarding Virtually
I just started a new gig in corporate banking, I'm a few weeks into the job and I feel relatively isolated and it's been difficult to go to people for questions/advice.
My coverage group has no other analysts but me globally, and the associates haven't made it easy to connect with them at all. The associates in my group are NEVER online on Teams and have blocked out their phone numbers from their email signatures - additionally, when I reached out to them, the individuals were not interested in making any effort to get to know me better or connect with me to give me some advice when I asked if I could setup some time to talk with them and ask them questions. I didn't so much as receive a "welcome" note from them - just the MDs and VPs.
I'm currently forwarding all my questions to the VP who I directly report to, as our specific "deal-team" doesn't have any associates, but I feel bad asking the VP questions and I know they're extremely busy and don't have time for me.
How do I meet more of the analysts in other coverage groups when we're going to be working virtually for the next few months at the least, and my coverage group's associates don't have any intention on being mentors/supportive of development?
What would you guys do in my situation to ramp up quickly and not get left behind?
In my last company, whenever we had a junior, they were assigned a mentor and those two people would spend hours on the phone together screen-sharing/walking through work - I definitely did that for the juniors I trained in my previous role. It has definitely been the opposite experience at my current company.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I don't want to be a loner and an underperformer for a full year before I inevitably switch the fuck out of here to a better firm.
