Gigs are assigned to workers either by clients who manually pick them or by the Gigwalk back-end system automatically matching the best workers for the job. When a client manually picks workers for a job, they do so based on the profiles, Gigwalker Performance score, and applications each applicant has submitted.
Here are a few tips for crafting a great Gigwalker application:
Upload a professional photo of yourself for your profile (for example: do not use a photo of your child, your dog, or a flower).
Spend a bit of time writing your applications – these are reviewed carefully by the customers, and the more details you can provide, the better! Include the date by which you can complete the Gig, your experience with that type of work, and your proximity to where the Gig needs to be completed.
Important: Personalize your application to the Gig. Customers do notice (and will be less likely to pick you) if you use the same message in each of your applications (i.e. pasting “I would love to do this” in 20 applications).
Read carefully through the Gig instructions before applying – customers may indicate specific information you need to include in your application (for example: a customer might require that you indicate whether you possess a specific store membership, and your application will not be approved if you do not include this information).
Examples of poor applications:
“I am good.”
“I want to do this Gig because I need the money.”
Examples of great applications:
“I have a Costco membership and will be available to complete this Gig at my local Costco at 1 PM today.”
“I have previous experience with business photography Gigs and will be able to complete the work this week.”
