What should I include in my Sidekicker Job Portal profile?

Your profile is made up of two sections - About Me & Work Experience. Both are equally important!

Step 1: About Me Section


Your summary is all about you! This is where you can highlight your skills, achievements & professional interests.

What to write;

  • Industries you have experience working in and why do you like working in them

  • Type of employment are you looking for. E.g. Part-time or Full-time

  • Roles/industries are you interested in working in

  • Your professional strengths and skills

  • Things you have learnt/achieved throughout your job experience so far

  • Courses you are currently studying or have completed

When you’re not working;

Potential employers are interested in learning about you as a person, as well as your work experience. Therefore it is important to include a couple of sentences that show off your personality and interests, for example:

  • Movies: If you like watching movies what type of movie do you watch?

  • Cooking: If you like cooking, what type of cuisine is your favourite to cook?

  • Exercise: If you like to exercise what type of exercise and what do you like about it?

  • Reading: If you like to read, what genre is your favourite to read?

  • Pets: Do you have any pets?


Do I need to include a profile picture?

Adding a profile picture is optional. Include a photo if you feel comfortable doing so.

A good profile picture will be;

  • Taken from the waist up, standing face-on

  • Against a neutral background

How do I add a profile picture?

  • Log in to your Sidekicker Job Portal account

  • On the top right-hand side, click on your icon/name, and then select ‘My profile’

  • Click the pencil icon on the photo section & select your desired photo

  • Drag the photo so it’s centre & press submit

Do I need to include a LinkedIn profile?

No, adding a LinkedIn profile is optional! However, if you have a LinkedIn profile we would suggest including it in your profile.

Step 2: Work Experience

We recommend including at least 3 different experiences, showcasing as many of your skills as possible. When completing this section, It is best to use dot points.

What to write;

  • Explain your main tasks and responsibilities in this role.

  • Explain the main skills you demonstrated in the role. Include examples of how you used these skills.

  • Think about transferable skills you can highlight, that might relate to a wide variety of roles.

  • Include information about any software or training you completed for the role. Such as Excel or Google Suite.
