5 Steps to Building the Perfect Profile

As a new member, you should begin your MatchStaff journey by creating a resume that will make any future employer want to employ you. Even if you are already a member, it’s always important to keep this updated- it’s where all the magic happens. Your resume is split into 5 separate sections, let’s go through them:

1. Important details

The first section is arguably one of the most important sections of your profile. These details will be the first thing a prospective employer will want to see. It is here that you can add or change your age, nationality, job search status and profile picture. (So don’t forget to leave behind those holiday pics behind! You don’t want to make a bad impression.)

2. It’s all about you

In the next step, you will have the opportunity to talk a little bit more about yourself. Don’t be shy, just let loose. There are three topics including an ‘About me’, ‘My ideal bar job’, and ‘Looking for work’ tab. Give a little insight in each section about what you’re looking for and the type of person you are. Just remember that with a limited word count, you need to put the most important aspects first.

3. Previous experience

Adding relevant work and education experience will build your resume and demonstrate that you have what it takes to get the job you applied for. Click on the ‘plus’ sign and a new window will open up where you can put the dates, location and field of study in the boxes provided- it’s that simple.

4. You’ve got a match!

When you select the sectors that you’d like to work in, you’ll be sent jobs that match the criteria you’ve given. All you have to do is tick your favourite type of venues from the checklist and the jobs will come to you.

5.  Reasons to hire me

What skills or attributes do you think you can add to the role? Whether it’s flair skills or your friendly personality, it’s good to accumulate a list of talents that you think would add value to the role you are applying for.

And lastly, don’t forget to save any changes that you’ve made!
