Great news – SkillPages just got a whole lot better!
As Iain (SkillPages CEO) recently mentioned we’ve been working hard on a redesign and today we’re excited to unveil a whole new look for your skills. The redesign includes new features to showcase your skills even better than before and new designs to make it easier to get your skills found.
Up until now portfolio updates were mixed in with all other activity on SkillPages. This wasn’t ideal for people who just wanted to see examples of your work, so now you have a dedicated portfolio for each of your skills. Build up your portfolio with images, files and videos for new customers and clients to browse. Showcasing your skills is the best way to get contacted for new opportunities.
We’ve listened to your feedback about wanting to get contacted about relevant opportunities and added a new section to your skills. Now you can let people know what type of opportunities you’re interested in and what your availability is. This can be specified per skill, so you may want full time work with one skill but just one off opportunities for another – this is now clearly visible on each skill. Furthermore you can add your level and experience to each skill, stating the amount of years you have been working in a particular skill and what stage you are at, from beginner through to guru!
When finding skilled people to trust a short video can go a long way in establishing this trust, letting people know a little more about you and your skills in a very personable way. Stand out from the competition and tell people why they should choose you for their next opportunity!
You can find all the new features by viewing one of your skills. Thanks to all those who have given feedback over the recent months. We hope you like the new additions, if you have any questions or feedback please let us know in the comments.
