I’m a Creative who was accepted into the Girlgaze Network, what do I need to know about setting up my profile and how do I start getting access to gigs?

In order to ensure that you come up in search results and that you’re able to view and apply to jobs and opportunities, you need to make sure that you’ve completed your portfolio.  That means making sure that you have at least 3 projects uploaded and you complete your bio, skills and other background information.  Overall, it’s important that you present your work in the best possible light, so definitely give your portfolio an overall review.

Remember, there are jobs and opportunities on the platform that you can apply to directly, but both our team at Girlgaze, as well as Company subscribers on the Girlgaze Network, are always browsing and searching.  You never know when you might get contacted directly for a job.  So stay on your toes, and make sure that your portfolio stays up to date.  Also, make sure you are regularly checking your email to see if a Company has contacted you directly.

How do I get featured on the Girlgaze’s Instagram, Girlgaze’s homepage and other social platforms?

We absolutely love featuring the work of our extraordinary creative community on our platforms as much as we possibly can.  It helps us make sure that as many people and companies know how amazing our community is and that they need to hire you all ASAP.

First and foremost, if you are a creative member of the Girlgaze Network we regularly feature content that you make available in your portfolio on our platforms and in marketing and promotional materials. Make sure that your portfolio is up-to-date at all time.  Our creative advisors are looking regularly for amazing new work to feature.  If you are not a Creative on the Girlgaze Network, go ahead and apply here.  Acceptance is not guaranteed.  Additionally, if you’re on Instagram, make sure to add #girlgaze to your Instagram posts and they’ll automatically be submitted for consideration as well!

I am a Creative that applied for the Girlgaze Network and was placed on the waitlist, when will I know whether I was accepted?
