Boost your profile

You’re excited to hire your crew, but make sure they’re excited to work with you. It only takes a few minutes to build an employer profile on, so include as much about your company as possible. The more information you can include, the more comfortable candidates will be working with you.

When posting a job, details matter

Make sure any posting includes as much detail about the job as possible -- dates, location, day rates. If you are specific about what you need, you will attract profiles from highly qualified candidates. Request resumes, references, portfolios, and reels to get a good feel for applicants’ prior experience.

Also be sure to include any special requirements -- ie. software skills, licenses, languages.
