Why Work in Coliving?
As we Are starting to expand our operations, we thought it might be a good idea to give a breakdown of the benefits of working for Outpost Club. So here is our list of reasons to live/work in coliving:
It's a rapidly growing industry.
There seem to be new companies opening coliving spaces everyday. Nevertheless, the industry is still small, and developing skills that only a small group of people currently have gives you a great advantage when looking for jobs.
You're surrounded by motivated people.
When living and working with people who took a chance on entering this new industry, you'll be surrounded by people who get it. By "get it" we mean that they understand this: the way in which we've historically thought about our housing accommodations and our working hours is changing. These are people at the forefront of a rapid shift in the way we live our daily lives.
You can commute to your kitchen, or anywhere for that matter.
All of our employees (and members who are freelancing/working from home) use our spaces to work from home, productively. Some sit in the kitchen, some sit in the coworking space, but regardless, home becomes a place of work during the day.
You're working for a community, not an apartment building.
Work has more meaning when you are truly a part of something, that's why most of our employees both work and live in our spaces. When the work you do directly impacts your surroundings, it is obvious that your work holds importance.
If it's a startup, you can have a large impact, quickly.
When you work at a startup, it's all-hands-on-deck. If you can show that you are an integral part of the team, you will gain new responsibilities, quickly. You might be tasked with revamping the entire communications strategy and executing it, or hiring and managing the newest employees, or creating the agenda and running meetings with your supervisors. All of which are valuable skills for any job, and you can gain them quickly at a startup.
And our favorite benefit: You'll meet people from all over the world
If you live and work in our spaces for as little as six months, you are likely to live with as many as 15 nationalities at any given time, and over 50 nationalities over the duration of that stay. Some of our employees like to say "I have a home to stay at in over 30 countries, all from the friends I've made here."
