Use a clear and relevant profile picture

Your profile picture gives the client their first impression of you. A profile picture of you at a relevant workplace (e.g. a picture of you working behind the bar), can clearly show who you are and directly portray your work experience. At a glance, this shows your potential client that you’re the right person for the shift. If you don't have a photo at work, it’s important that your potential client can clearly see who they are about to accept for the job. So use a sharp, neat photo that clearly shows your face. And last but not least; don’t forget to smile!

Write a catchy introductory text

The introductory text is another element where you can set yourself apart from all the other FreeFlexers. Show your motivation, skills and personality with a short description about yourself. It’s important to remember that every FreeFlexer tries to use this to convince the client that they are the perfect person for the job. This means that you have to be creative. This is your time to shine!

Take note of the details of the shift

Every available shift gives certain details. Some shifts require multiple FreeFlexers at the same time. This increases your chances compared to a shift that only needs one FreeFlexer. The platform also shows how many FreeFlexers have already applied for a certain shift. Paying attention to this allows you to apply for a “less in-demand” shift which seriously increases your chances of getting selected. When you still have questions about certain shifts, feel free to contact the client.

Apply for multiple shifts at once

Multiple FreeFlexers will apply for the same shifts as you. So it’s important to make sure that you don’t put all your eggs in one basket. When you apply for multiple shifts with overlapping time frames, getting selected for one will automatically revoke your applications for the other shifts.

Important to note: Your applications will only be revoked on shifts that overlap. For example, if you apply for a shift in the morning, and one later at night, getting selected for the morning shift will not revoke your application for the night shift (you can be selected for two different shifts with a minimum of 59 minutes in between each other). However, it is possible to be selected for back-to-back shifts when they are for the same client.

Apply for relevant shifts

It’s important to apply for shifts for which you have the required skills. The client is looking for a FreeFlexer with a certain skill set. If it turns out you don’t have them when you said you did, you’ll rarely be selected. Think about your skills and how you can portray them. This will result in you being selected for more shifts than ever before! Added to this, would you like to work as a server, but have difficulties getting hired for a suitable shift? Start out by applying for wardrobe or dishwashing shifts. The more experience in a certain branch, the better your profile will become!

Take care of your personal rating

Your rating helps the client decide if you’re the right person for the shift. It’s why it’s so important to maintain a great score. Some tips on how to get there:

  • Come prepared: make sure you carefully read the shift description upfront so you know exactly what is expected of you

  • Be on time: there’s no better way to leave a good first impression

  • Own it: you are responsible for your shift. Think about what is the best way to get the job done and how you can support your client the most. We know from experience that this is exactly what clients really appreciate.

Keep your contact information up-to-date

It’s important to keep all your contact information up-to-date. This ensures the client is able to contact you across multiple platforms and as fast as possible. Not all clients use the same contact platforms so make sure that you are reachable through different mediums e.g. email and mobile number.
