Manage Your Opportunities
Among the recent changes to SkillPages there has been one very important addition – choosing what opportunities you get notified about.
After hearing from members it was apparent that your opportunity preferences vary widely, even from one skill to another. As opportunities are getting more varied it has become invaluable to know what type of opportunity it is so we can notify the most suitable people. Whether you’re interested in one off paid work or want to find part time collaboration projects you can now tailor this for each of your skills.
Each opportunity that is created must specify whether it’s paid, unpaid, collaborative, a business deal or any combination of these 4 opportunity types. Along with knowing whether it’s full time, part time or one off we now only notify you about the opportunities that you’re interest in.
You can set your preferences for each skill separately – first go to ‘Your Skills‘ and choose a skill to update. The more types you choose the more opportunities you will receive!
