Navigating the gig economy can feel difficult and sometimes overwhelming for contractors. That’s why we have built GigNow’s platform to be both business and contractor centric. In order to have the best experience with the GigNow platform, we developed a practical 2-part guide for your reference.
GigNow seeks to work swiftly and effectively to staff our amazing contractor community on engagements – enabling them to thrive in the gig economy. In order to do that, our recruiters need visibility into contractors’ skillsets. You can stay visible by doing the following:
1. Update and upload your resume in PDF (must be logged in)
Uploading your resume allows GigNow’s platform to suggest relevant gigs that match your experience. Pro Tip: Uploading your resume as a PDF is best for the system and our recruiters
2. Update your skills
Our AI relies on skills to find you the right gig, so be as thorough and specific as you can!
3. Update your availability
Updating your availability allows you to come up on top of our internal searches, boosting our ability to find you the right gig.
4. Update your pay rate
Our recruiters want to match contractors with gigs that meet their desired level of compensation. However, being flexible on compensation means more gig matches.
It’s easy to stay connected to the GigNow platform. Try these 3 things:
