Here’s another “how to” guide to getting the most out of limber. Let’s get straight to it, with our guide to building a great profile.
1. Your intro
Here’s some inspiration to get you going:
This is one of the hardest parts. How do you tread the line between interesting and professional and still stand out from the crowd?
a. Tell venues what you’re looking for. It’s a two way street and they want to know you want them as much as they want you. Whether it’s sustainability, the use of local suppliers or venues serving the best vegan menus, be clear about what you want.
b. Tell them what you’re into outside of work – it helps build a great rapport and gives venues real insight into you. The whole point at being part of the limber community is that the platform enables you to get more out of life – so be proud of that – let people know what you’re up to.
c. Be clear on your availability. Are you in the area for a while? What about hours or the days off you’ll need. Get all the info our there as soon as you can.
2. Your profile pic
No pressure on this one. They appear nice and small on your profile; so if in doubt, a headshot of you will do just fine.
Be honest with your skills assessments and make sure you give a good description of each piece of experience you add. Did you handle the cellar? Were you a key holder? What training did you have? The more the merrier here!
To add a bit of razzle dazzle to your profile, you can send your previous experience to your employers for an endorsement. It adds a bit of additional comfort to hirers so is well worth doing!
