Recruiters Check for Professionalism and Reliability
Professionalism is key for any brand ambassador, as they’ll be representing the brand or event. From dressing appropriately to having a positive attitude, professionalism is a must-have for any gig worker. Reliability is of utmost importance when looking for gig workers. They need to be able to show up on time, complete tasks as assigned, and be reliable in their performance.
Recruiters also want to see a bit of your personality shine through in your profile. They are looking for brand ambassadors who are not only skilled and reliable but also personable and engaging.

Recruiters Check Pictures
We’ve all heard that ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ and it’s true! Having pictures showcasing your experiences with brands goes a long way. Make sure you’re smiling and the brand’s logos are clear and recognizable in your photo. Don’t have any photos of you working at events yet? That’s okay too! Use your favorite ones that best represent you. Group photos are also great to include because it shows you’re a team player.
Recruiters Check your Social Footprint
Just as a picture is worth a thousand words, your social media profiles and digital presence are worth even more! Questions a recruiter might ask themselves when going through your social media are: How does this person portray themselves online? How does this person interact with brands? Do they show evidence of having positive experiences? These are all good questions to ask yourself while building your digital footprint.
