During your interview session our team will give you guidelines on how to complete your profile on Sidekicker to give you the best chance of being selected for a shift.  

Don't take our suggestions lightly as having a more complete profile will give you a better chance of landing those shifts! 

To begin,

  • Log in to your Sidekicker account
  • On the right hand side, select ‘View Profile’, and then ‘Edit Profile’

1. Biography section [Recommended length: 2 paragraphs]

  • Introduce yourself with a friendly greeting
  • Talk about what you are currently doing (study, work, travel etc.)
  • Outline your work experience (industries, roles and skills gained)
  • Finish with your key strengths and why you would be a great Sidekick


2. What you do when you're not Sidekicking [Recommended length: 3-4 sentences]

  • Include your interests, hobbies and what you do for fun

3. Work Categories [Select up to 4 work categories]

  • Select your top four work categories to talk about on your profile (you will still be eligible for all categories - these are just categories you wish to highlight on your profile).

Protip: Always ensure to highlight the highest “level” of job achieved. 

For example, “Banquet staff” over “Wait Staff”, “Brand Ambassador” over “Flyering”.

4. Why you’re great for these jobs [Recommended length: 3-4 sentences]

  • For each of the four subcategories you have selected, write about your strengths, experience and why you would enjoy working in this subcategory

5. Experience [Recommended length: No more than 200 characters]

  • Add your experience, including your employer, type of role, time frame and a brief description of your role. Please also check the relevant subcategory boxes for the experience (e.g. for restaurant work, you could select “Bar Staff” & “Wait Staff”)

Protip: Use all 200 characters to make your experience stand out.
