Uniting Top Talent with Career Opportunities Through Co-Working Spaces
Recently Adriana Lopez wrote for Forbes an insightful article on co-working spaces as 21st century work enclaves. Co-working spaces have emerged from a trendy startup hotspot to an established dominant force for young professionals eager to build community and a network during a slow-to-steady economic recovery. According to the article, because of emerging co-working spaces, “traditional office settings will become as obsolete as fax machines and dial up Internet.” The 21st century workplace is already here.
For those unfamiliar with the set up, coworking spaces are a shared work environment (usually an office setting) that hosts various community events. Unlike a standard office environment, the people in a co-working space are usually employed by a variety of companies. Individuals work together to collaborate on projects. This setup is ideal for telecommuting professionals or independent contractors.
With that in mind, Galaxy Unite is collaborating with co-working spaces to unite top talented professionals with work. Connecting talented professionals with employers, community events and coworking spaces, Galaxy Unite brings together our community in an innovative way. Galaxy Unite proudly co-sponsored Denver Co-Working Week earlier this May. Six prominent spaces are making a solid contribution to the Denver co-working culture.
