Get your profile as close to 100% complete as possible. When editing your profile on the website version of Trusted Herd, you’ll see how much complete % is given for each section. For example: first and last names are worth 5% respectively, resume is worth 10% and travel preferences are worth 2%. The more quality information you add to your profile, the better it will look! You can read more about Trusted Herd profiles in this blog.

Here is a short checklist when applying for jobs to get the highest chance of being hired:

  1. Ensure your profile is near 100% complete
  2. Have photos of you working gigs or photos that bring out your personality (smile!)
  3. Know anyone who can vouch for your work ethic? The reason is you can get endorsements from fellow workers, and companies, that end up on your TH profile! This is super helpful because you can carry your reputation with you to each new gig applied, vs. starting back at square one each time.
  4. When it asks for an application note, that’s your chance to stand out. Write something particular about the job. “Hi xyz company, I really want to work this convention because I’ve been a fan of xyz for years” or something like that. Make sure it’s well put together.

Follow the above and you’ll get some companies asking for interviews!
