How to fill out your Coople Profile
Completing your Coople Profile is as easy as 1-2-3, and it’s one of the best ways to get noticed by employers. In this post, we’ll guide you through the steps to fill out your profile on Coople. If you haven’t done so already, take a look at our other blog posts for tips and tricks on creating a CV and taking a great profile picture.
1. First things first
In order to make sure potential employers can reach you and that you are properly paid for your work, you should update your Coople profile with the following information:
- Your contact details: email, telephone, address
- Your bank details, namely your IBAN number
- Any work-related documents, such as a copy of your work permit, passport, and AHV number
DID YOU KNOW? Before you can be hired for a job, Coople must verify your right to work, a process that may take up to a couple of days. This is why we recommend updating your Coople Profile with the above information as soon as possible!
2. Get to know Coople Job Profiles
One of the perks about signing up to Coople is that you don’t have to get stuck with doing the same job every day. Depending on your education and previous work history, you may select different Job Profiles across a variety of industries, such as Event Assistant, Chef, or Insurance, just to name a few.
You can add up to 10 different Job Profiles in your Coople account. The more Job Profiles you select, the more diversified the missions you receive will be, potentially widening your chances of getting hired for a job.
TIP: Some Job Profiles require additional documentation of your education or skills, so make sure to read each Profile description carefully and upload your the documents when asked.
3. Create a short profile summary
Another great way to catch a future employer’s attention is to write a couple of sentences about yourself in the Profile Summary section of your Coople Profile. Introduce yourself in a few sentences and let employers know how you work and what you’re looking for professionally. A good example of a profile summary can be:
I am a bilingual (German and Italian) professional currently pursuing a degree in Economics at the University of Zurich. As a student, I am primarily looking for temporary and flexible jobs in the hospitality and gastronomy industries as well as office work related to my field of study. However, I am also open for other work opportunities as well!
In this example, you’re letting any future employers know your language skills, industries of interest, as well as the type of jobs you are looking for. However, you’re also leaving room open for other opportunities which could be interesting.
And voilà, your profile is now complete! The job marketplace is waiting for you, so go ahead and check it out. If you need some help along the way, check out our blog post on how to find a job that suits your profile.
