With the move to share coworking space, conducting a business on a day-to-day basis is now easier than ever – even if you don’t have a physical office! This is also true for conducting Job Interviews.
Gone are the days when job interviews were strictly confined inside the corporate office. And they don’t have to be at the local Starbucks either! Not when there are lots of professional or casual Meeting spaces to choose from.
If you haven’t tried it yet, there are many benefits to having an offsite interview. Here are our top 5:
Benefit #1: Comfort
By having the interview at a neutral location in a casual environment setting, your job applicants will be more at ease to answer your questions and converse more naturally. You will also have the option to professional equipment, refreshments and other amenities.
Reminder: While it’s good to have the meeting somewhere casual, it’s not a good idea to have it in a restaurant and other public eating places.
Benefit 2: Accessibility
With offsite interviews, it’s easy to choose a location that is accessible for both parties. There’s no need for the job candidate to travel all the way to your office. You can just meet halfway.
Reminder: Find an interview room where there is less traffic. You can also opt to meet when it’s not a rush hour.
This interview room is furnished with the essentials and comes with complimentary WiFi access and catering packages.
Benefit 3: Technology
By using an offsite interview room, you will have access to the latest technology that can work to your advantage especially if the job candidate is making a presentation or if other team members are joining the meeting remotely.
Reminder: Make sure to check if the equipment is working to prevent any technical glitches from happening during the interview.
Benefit 4: Budget
One of the best advantages of booking a professional meeting space is the cost. Just search for an interview room at your preferred location and budget. You get to set how much you’re willing to spend for the space.
With Spare Workspace, you can choose from a wide range of accessible and vetted workspaces anytime and anywhere and at different price ranges. What’s more, we have live booking options for available workspaces in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, and all major cities in Australia.
Benefit 5: Convenience
If your office is quite small or there’s simply not enough room, there’s no need to postpone or hold off all job interviews (and even meetings!) until there’s a bigger space. Using a dedicated space is one of the most convenient ways to remedy the lack of space. Simply book a professional meeting space at your preferred location and you’re all set.
Reminder: While it may be easy to simply meet at the local coffee shop, it’s not the most ideal place to hold a job interview. Most job candidates prefer a place where they can be at ease. They might be intimidated by the fact that people can listen in on the interview and clam up. Worse, they might think that your business is dodgy and decide not to show up at all!
