How do I create a great profile?
Not all profiles are created equal. Make your profile stand out by following this checklist
Let's break down each section of your profile and outline our best tips for standing out from the crowd!
Upload a professional photo. Properly curating a profile picture reflects your level of professionalism. People are predominantly visual, so profile pictures can make or break impressions. Tips:
- Choose a photo that clearly shows your face
- Do not add filters or text to your photo
- Make sure that you’re the only person in the picture
Put in your full name (first and last name). Keep things professional and make a good impression on potential mentors!
Use the location finder to add your country flag to your profile. This will help us show you the best businesses depending on where you're from.
Enter the languages you speak here in order of most fluent to least fluent. While only one language is mandatory, you can add up to three.
Use your bio to introduce yourself - make it your own! Your bio can express your personality, strengths, personal interests, accomplishments, experience, etc. Make sure to check for typos, grammatical errors, punctuations, etc.
3. About Me
The About Me section it gives both businesses and Acadium a quick look at what you can offer and what you are looking for. This makes it easier for matching and being shortlisted.
Looking for experience in
What are you looking to learn on Acadium?
Industries I'm interested in
Do you have specific industries you’d like to work in?
What areas do you want to improve when it comes to marketing? Select all options that apply, although we don't suggest selecting more than 3 to 5 options to help our algorithm show you the right matches. You can change this at any time.
Personal interests help mentors learn a bit more about you. You can add as many as you’d like, but you must select at least 3. Businesses operate over a multitude of industries, and, most of the time, your interests help in getting you into a suitable apprenticeship. When you have interests in common with a prospective mentor it’s a good indication that the apprenticeship can be a success. However, interests do not affect or define your qualifications.
Amount of mentorship required
The amount of mentorship helps mentors understand how much guidance and feedback they will need to provide to help you be successful.
Your career goal helps mentors understand what your needs are so they can help you achieve your goals.
4. Familiar Tools
Make sure you tell us about your top marketing skills. Like your profile, it gives potential mentors and the Acadium team a quick view of what you can do, for easier matching.
Note: It's fine if you are not familiar with many marketing tools, knowing how to work with documents and sheets is already a good starting point. Acadium's goal is to help you learn more skills, regardless of your starting point.
Select and answer one of the questions to help us match you with a mentor.
