We thought it'd be useful to provide a walkthrough showing the process for signing up to Jobplot and getting you or your company listed here.
It's a four-step whole process and, from start to finish, only takes 5 minutes.
- Step 1 - set up your username and password
- Step 2 - verify your account
- Step 3 - set up your profile
- Step 4 - add links and images/video
If you run into any problems while setting up your profile then please get in touch and tell us - we're continually improving Jobplot and can only do this with input from the people who use it.
To get started click here to sign-up to Jobplot
Step 1 - username and password ¶
For this walk-through we'll take the example of (the fictitious) Terry Mcelroy who runs a company in Hereford called Creative Media Limited.
After clicking the link above you should see the following screen:
This first screen should be quite self-explanatory. Don't forget to tick those boxes!
Step 2 - verify your account ¶
Ignore the boxes on the screen that you're sent to and head to your email inbox. You should have an email like this (check your spam folder if not):
Click on that first link to verify your account and you'll be sent to your Jobplot dashboard. Soon, this will be where you manage your profiles and any jobs or opportunities you list.
The next thing to do is to click on the green 'Get started' button on the right-hand side.
Step 3 - set up your profile ¶
Fill out all the information requested. There are tips to help you along on the right-hand side.
You can always edit this information later on if you like or if any of these things change.
Here's the screen as filled out by Terry McElroy to give you an idea of the kind of information you'll be providing:
If you don't have a logo or photo to upload just at the moment then don't worry. You can come back and do that later - in the meantime Jobplot will insert a subtle little placeholder (see the screenshot below for an example).
Click on 'Save profile' at the bottom when done and ta-da! Your profile will now appear in the Jobplot talent listings, just like the Creative Media one does here:
There's one more screen to help improve that profile…
Step - 4 - add links, images and video to your profile ¶
If you like, you can skip this step and come back to it at a later date. On this page you can add links to your work and images and video to show off that work directly on your profile.
If you insert a link without an image or video then it'll be shown in your profile's sidebar. If you include an image or a video then it will appear in a big box at the bottom of your profile.
And that's it!
Here's how the Creative Media profile looks:
Remember, you can manage your profile and change any of your details at any time by logging in and going to your dashboard. You can now also post jobs and opportunities that you may have.
There's lots more coming with Jobplot over this year. The site's going to keep growing and we'll be finding ways to promote the site, helping to get you more exposure.
Finally, just a reminder that Jobplot is still in a 'beta' version, meaning that we're still working on parts of it. If anything doesn't work then please let us know at email@example.com.
