The Future Of Work

In order to bring to life PSFK’s Future of Work reportPSFK Labs challenged creative agencies from around the world to generate product and service concepts that leverage the trends identified within the report. This CoApply concept was created by Live With Design.

Co-Apply, a pop up co-working space for individuals that are looking for work and career advancement. Seeking work or a career path is typically a time consuming, solo activity. Co-Apply creates a vibrant support community for members in times of transition.

Co-Apply is a mobile co-working space that travels through existing co-working spaces, for limited time periods. This provides connections to a broader entrepreneurial community which co-working spaces are known to create. Co- Apply applicants gain understanding of startup DNA, that many organizations are looking to integrate in their own culture.

Pop-up space features allow Co-Apply to move through multiple communities.

Light-weight desks configure to facilitate one-on-one interviews, workshops and presentations while creating a work environment for the job search.

Stations are customizable for a variety of co-working layouts.

Interactive tablets introduce Co-Apply into the specific co-working community.

Laptops/iPads with current programs travel with Co-Apply, to be checked out on location.

Co-Apply believes in the power of community! The Co-Apply community’s strength is in the face-to-face interactions of its members. Members work together building resumes and practicing interviews with fellow members in similar fields. Membership is intended for rapid incubation of skills, achieved through a diverse workshops and industry brainstorming groups. Co-Apply also offers career matching, mentoring and access to individuals that help develop desired soft and hard skills.

CO-APPLY offers a state of the art work space. Co-Apply gives members all the tools necessary for success, by giving members access to computers that are equipped with latest programs and technologies. Computers and tablets are available for checkout at the Co-Apply station.

With the transformation initiated by Co-Apply, isolated job seekers are joined to the community. Applicants minimize frustration by keeping current with programs and skills, empowered to develop as skilled professionals. On an interpersonal level, Co-Apply strengthens the community workforce while instilling collaborative work culture in it’s members.
