Before you start looking for an apprentice, you'll need to set up a profile to show Acadium candidates what skills you can teach them during an apprenticeship and share a bit about your business.
Navigate to your profile
1. Start by logging into your Acadium account, navigating to your dashboard, and clicking on the circular face icon in the bottom left corner and select "View Profile".
2. Click on the "Edit Profile" button to begin editing the information in your profile.
Create an outstanding profile
Let's break down each section of your profile and outline our best tips for standing out from the crowd!
The first thing a candidate looks at on your profile is your photo. Using a professional photo helps show your credibility, and smiling shows that you're friendly and approachable!
What is your position and business name?
This section is pretty straight-forward - what's your role in the Business, and what's the name of your company. Choose the industry that's most relevant to your Business. Candidates can filter their discovery feed by industry, so make sure you pick the industry that best represents your interests! Link your company website here.
Note: If you don't have a website yet, you can link a social media profile instead!
What are your top 3 business & career accomplishments?
Here we're looking at what you've done in your career or your Business. What are you proud of and what showcases the skills that you've honed through your experience?
Tip: Use simple, concise points to focus on what makes you unique. These can be translated skills from any experience you've had, so be creative!
We all know the importance of building relationships with the people we work with! Having common interests can help bridge that gap and build trust with the candidate you choose. Candidates are more likely to work with you if your interests overlap with some of theirs!
Tip: Be honest about what you're interested in - that way when you find a candidate who aligns with who you are, you'll have success!
Candidates have different levels of experience. Let candidates know how much experience you have with the type of work you need help with. This helps them understand if you can help them complete certain tasks and provide guidance.
