With the launch of co-op jobs and recruitment, there’s a growing number of people interested in joining co-ops, which are now available to join for free online.
According to the website JobCentre Plus, a service for employers, there are now over 20,000 jobs advertised on JobCentresPlus, which is the largest and most popular online job board for co-operatives.
The site says the jobs are advertised in English and Spanish, and have an average starting salary of US$150,000 and an average weekly pay of US£12,000.
The website says they are available from across the United States and Canada.
For many, the job is a first step in their journey to becoming a full-time worker.
For some, the opportunities are already starting to arrive.
“I’ve been in co-work for five years, and the first thing I did was find out I was going to be a co-worker,” said Michelle Rios, who is now in her first year of cooperatives, working as a customer service rep at a coffee shop.
“The co-workers have really helped me develop my confidence, and to become more independent.
It’s been really nice, and I’m excited to be part of it.”
Some are finding the experience a bit intimidating, but Michelle says she feels more confident in her work as a co to work with.
“It’s really exciting to be able to have the autonomy of a co and to have people who know me,” she said.
This is going to open doors for me in my career,” she added.”
With co-working, I’m able to do a lot of things that I couldn’t do before, like meeting people I’m not normally interested in.”
This is going to open doors for me in my career,” she added.
While many people are excited about the new job opportunities, others are worried about their careers.”
Having a job is important, but it’s not something I’m looking for,” said Samantha Housley, who started her co-optia career with her co worker, Michelle.”
A lot of people are worried that they’re not going to make it and that they might lose their jobs if they don’t stick with it, but they need to find work,” she continued.”
We’re trying to find a balance between having enough flexibility so that we can be a full time worker, and being able to work for a company who supports the work that we’re doing.
“With coop jobs, I’ve found I don’t need to be at work every day to be in a good place.
I feel much more confident, and much more relaxed about my career.”
The coops are now also looking to hire more full-timers to help expand their workforce.
For Michelle, this means getting her co co-potters skills up to date, and developing a new brand of training and mentoring.
“As a co, I really enjoy teaching, and getting my co-punks skills up-to-date so they can be able in a few years to work in a different way,” she told ABC News.
“Being able to help people, especially people in their first year, is really important.”
While there’s no shortage of job opportunities for those looking to start their own co-pots, there is a lot more work to be done for the new workforce.
“Our jobs are very specialized, so people who have been in the co-operation space before may have some questions about how they would be different from co-owners in a co pot,” said Rios.
“And people who aren’t necessarily in cooperatives may have a lot questions about what kind of job they can do, what they’re going to have to learn and what their skillset would be, and how they’re likely to fit in in the organisation.”
