Working at a coworking space while you're still in school can be a great way to gain valuable experience and make connections. In this post, we'll explore the pros and cons of working at a co-working space while you're still in school, as well as some tips for getting the most out of your experience.
You make strong connections
Believe it or not, it is easier to find a job while you’re still in school. You can gain experience while you're still in school, as well as meet others who can help you secure a job upon graduation. You can even build relationships with potential employers.
You gain valuable experience
You can gain valuable experience working with others. Working in a group is great for learning about teamwork and communication, as well as the importance of time management and self-discipline. You'll get to apply these skills in your future career, whether you're an entrepreneur or working for someone else.
You can utilize the coworking resources
You get access to resources like desks, high-speed internet and printers when needed so there’s no need to worry about bringing your own equipment or purchasing expensive things like those mentioned.
You build your network
Networking can take your career to the next level. Networking can help you find jobs, mentors, collaborators and investors.
Working with others in a coworking space can provide you with a supportive, structured environment to complete work and build connections.
Though you may be tempted to work alone, working with others can provide you with a supportive, structured environment to complete work and build connections.
Coworking spaces often have events that bring people together—and those connections last well past the day of the event. Coworkers will often eat lunch together, go out for drinks after work and can learn from each other's experiences, projects and travels. This spirit of community is important in any industry, but especially in creative fields where collaboration is essential. In school, we're constantly learning new things outside of our scope of knowledge; by engaging with others in a coworking space, you'll be able to build relationships that encourage exploration outside your comfort zone (which also happens to be good practice for life after graduation).
With all the benefits of coworking for students, it’s not surprising that more and more are choosing this option. Working in a collaborative environment can help you build connections with others who share your interests and can help you gain valuable experience that will make you a better employee later on down the road.
