How We Use Your Profile
Your Watu App profile is the main contributing factor to getting booked on a job, along with your application for the role and conversation with one of our Staffing Team. Think of it like your CV or social media profile. It needs to be concise, detailed and express who you are, defining what sets you aside from other promotional staff in the area, and what experience you have that makes you the best candidate.
A good profile with clear photo’s, detailed experience and up to date contact information will help you get booked for work. We also use this information and your photo’s when a client requests a portfolio to select suitable candidates to represent them. It is very important to have your profile looking spotless if you want to stand out, and the more up to date and detailed your profile is, the likelier it is to get booked on work that feels right for you.
How Detailed Should I Be?
When it comes to finding the right people for a campaign, we search for the best people based on the brands you’ve worked with, relevant experience, and personal interests, along with any key client specifications such as additional languages or demographic.
Your experience doesn’t have to be entirely based in promotions either. Are you a trained cocktail barmen? Can you speak multiple languages? Act, dance or sing? We think that is amazing, so let us know about it!
What About Photos?
We like to see a mix of photos on your profile that are professional but also show you doing what you love or working hard on campaigns. They don’t have to be professionally taken but we do recommend having a selection of unfiltered headshots, full-length shots and photos of you working/doing what you love. Ideally we need at least one headshot where you are fully facing the camera. Please be conscious that the photos need to be suitable images that we could send to a client if a selection process has been requested, this would exclude images with social media filters/excessive make-up or pictures on a night out. Think of the image you would like to portray of yourself when selecting your images and what you think clients will choose when looking for someone to represent their brand.
Also please select at least one image with your application that shows you alone in the image with your face clearly visible and not a group shot.
