Co-working spaces can be much more than a quiet, convenient spot to catch up on emails and grab a cup of coffee. When you utilize all that co-working spaces have to offer, you might find that working in this type of environment can propel your career forward in numerous ways.

Collaborate on projects. As the old saying goes, “two heads are better than one.”  But what about a whole team of collaborators? Working as a team can help you expand your vision and think outside the box, brainstorm creative solutions to problems, and develop more innovative arguments and presentations. A co-working space offers a central location for everyone to meet, and the technology to support any project.

Expand your network. Co-working spaces bring together professionals from a variety of backgrounds and occupations. And contrary to the typical office atmosphere, the more casual ambiance encourages socializing. You also won’t have to deal with office politics in a co-working setting, because you’re working alongside people from various companies along with the self-employed. Yet you can all find common ground in your lifestyles and the way you prefer to work.

All of these elements provide the perfect ingredients for networking. When you utilize your co-working space to make new professional connections, you expand your own opportunities. Who knows what could happen?

Build professional relationships.  Of course, the end result is that you build dependable, professional relationships. In a co-working setting, you can observe how others dedicate themselves to their own endeavors and decide if they might be a good fit for professional collaborations later. You might also refer clients to your new associates and earn valuable referrals in return. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.
