To work Shift Gigs with GigSmart, you’ll need to create your account on the Get Gigs app, and complete your profile. Creating a great worker profile takes time, but it’s worth it. Your worker profile is the first thing a hiring manager sees when you apply to a Gig. Set yourself apart from the competition to increase your chances of getting hired by completing as many sections as you can. Here are a few tips to help make your profile great.
The introduction section of your profile is where you give requesters a reason to hire you. Keep your description short and sweet. Add a 1-2 sentence overview of your professional experience and qualifications. A great introduction explains your qualifications, specific skills, what makes you unique, and shows your personality.
Verified workers can apply to verified Shift Gigs. Verified Shift Gigs require workers to have completed a worker background check and/or motor vehicle records check in order to apply to that Gig. You can opt-in directly from your worker profile in the app to enroll in verification for background checks and MVR checks. It’s free! To learn more about verification, click here.
Add your work history.
This gives hiring managers more background about your prior experience, including your former job responsibilities, qualifications, and skills.
References give hiring managers the opportunity to validate the quality of work you provide. As you start working Shift Gigs you will also gain ratings and reviews which will help to further validate your qualifications and stand out from the crowd.
Add education, training and licenses.
Highlight your education, training, and certifications to differentiate yourself from other candidates. Include the highest level of education you have received and any special certifications or licenses like a TIPS certification, PMP training or CDL.
Now that you have a strong worker profile you’re ready to start browsing and applying to local opportunities.
