DID YOU KNOW THAT EMPLOYERS PREFER COVER LETTERS?
 
 
92% of job posters

to see an application with a cover letter.
 
Scott Ricamore (Showrunner)
"I have used Staff Me Up to fill nearly every crew position, in every department, from PA to Supervising Producer. The cover letter provides me with the context to understand who an applicant is beyond their credits. The cover letter is so important to my hiring decisions I usually ignore applicants without a cover letter."
DID YOU KNOW THAT YOU CAN TRACK YOUR APP AND BOOST YOURSELF TO THE TOP OF AN APPLICANT LIST?
 
 
 
 
You can track the status of your applications. You can know when an employer has reviewed it and if they have decided to interview you. We are the only job board in the world that lets you know where you stand in the application process!

Did you read that last sentence? Make sure you do, because it's really important. Not only can you follow your application but you can do something about it! If you don't like where you're left standing you can give your application a BOOST and move your application to the top of the list! You can do this when you first apply to the job, or after if you see that you've fallen below where you'd like to be.
 
DID YOU CONNECT YOUR PROFILE TO SOCIAL MEDIA? IT HELPS!
Don't just focus one one position
 
Shine a light on yourself
 
The best way to maintain your best possible Rank is to keep your credits and your availability up-to-date on your Profile.

Also, we recommend connecting your account to Linked In or Facebook: this increases your Rank when someone in your social network is reviewing applicants or searching for people to hire. ”
DID YOU KNOW THAT MAINTAINING YOUR PROFILE AND KEEPING IT UP TO DATE IS YOUR RANK'S BEST FRIEND?
 
 
 
 
The best way to maintain your best possible Rank is to keep your credits and your availability up-to-date on your Profile.
Based on the statistics we've been tracking since we launched this plan a few months ago, we have some tips for getting the most out of your Power Boosts:

1) You should have at least ONE CREDIT that matches the position that you're applying to. (At the very least, you should have credits in similar positions if not that exact one). If you have no relevant experience at all, you're unlikely to be considered for the job, even with a Power Boost.

2) If you rank somewhere in the the middle -- let's say, #25 or #35 out of 100+ applicants), that might be a good time to try a Power Boost: the fact that you are already in the middle means that the employer will see that you are qualified for the job if you boost yourself to the top... so the Power Boost might make the difference in getting noticed. But if you're already at the top, don't waste a boost!!

Good luck and we always welcome your feedback, just contact us any time!
