How to Create a Get Gigs Account

Kate Scheeler | Jun 22, 2022

Looking for work? Get Gigs instantly connects you with local job opportunities – from shift work to part and full-time positions. Work opportunities in a variety of industries (warehouse, general labor, delivery drivers, retail, and more). Get Gigs makes it easy to gain experience and get paid (even same-day!) Here’s how to create your Get Gigs account: 

Download the app 

Simply head to the App Store or Google Play Store and search for the GigSmart Get Gigs app to download. 

Create a free Get Gigs account

Once installed, open the app to get started. You’ll be asked to confirm you’re looking to Find Work. From here you can choose to create an account by signing up with your Facebook account, Google account, Apple account, or email address. If you sign up with Facebook, Google or Apple, you will be asked to login and verify your information. 


Introduce yourself 

Get started by sharing your first and last name. Only your first name and last initial will be visible to hiring managers.


Verify your mobile number 

Next, you will be required to enter your mobile number.  As part of a verification, you will receive a verification code through SMS text. Enter this code to finish verifying your phone number. Don’t worry, your phone number will never be shared with requesters as these communications are safely completed through the app.


Date of birth 

Provide your date of birth. Users must be at least 14 years old to use our platform. Adult consent must be provided for all users under the age of 18.  


Add your location

You will be asked to enter your zip code or enable your current location. We’ll use this information to ensure we connect you with work opportunities posted in your area. 


Add a professional profile photo

Make a strong first impression with a clear and professional photo. Your profile picture is the first thing hiring managers will see when reviewing your Shift Gig application. Once you’re hired, they’ll also use it to identify you at the job site. We recommend making sure your photo clearly shows your face and is taken on a solid background with good lighting. 


Add skills 

All Shift Gigs posted in the app are based off skills. The more skills you have in your profile, the more Shift Gigs you’ll match with. And if you have notifications turned on, each time a new Shift Gig is posted matching one of your skills, we’ll notify you the moment the Gig post is live.

We recommend adding 6-10 skills to your profile to increase your chances of matching with available work opportunities.


Add a method of transportation 

Add your primary method of transportation. As you have upcoming Shift Gigs, we’ll use this to help you determine how long it will take you to get to the Gig Address. This can be changed at any time. 


Access worker benefits

If you’re interested in maximizing your earning potential and peace of mind – sign up for expense tracking and other benefits. You can do this at any time in the app or on our worker benefits page.


Allow access to your location & enable notifications 

By allowing access to your location, you will be able to start your clock when you arrive onsite at your Gig. If you decide to not allow access to your location the requester will need to confirm your arrival in order to start your clock.

Turn on notifications to see hourly shifts, part-time, and full-time jobs posted near you sooner. As you work Shift Gigs, which are managed through the app, we’ll send you important notifications to help you understand what to expect along the way.


Congratulations, you have successfully created a Get Gigs account! Now, it’s time to set up your worker profile and start applying to Gigs near you. We are confident Get Gigs can help you work fast.
