The Power of Tradeshow Casting

You’ve signed up for Castango – now what?  You now have a friend in the industry!

We have a whole blog series on how to get hired in the Tradeshow and Event industry. Let’s get started.  We will talk about tips and best practices that will help you find work!  Before we get started – make sure you “like” our Facebook  page for updates and tips for success in the industry .

At Castango the first thing you need to do is create a profile. Why? Because, your profile is what you use to connect with potential clients in your industry and how you get noticed by event and trade show talent seekers. In addition, your Castango profile can increase your visibility online and help you build your professional brand.  Anyone looking for information about you will find everything they need to know at a glance.

That’s why it’s important to make sure that your Castango profile is complete and as detailed as possible. In fact, you can consider your Castango profile, your “online resume”. It should include all of your skills and if you’re looking for a trade show model job, you will want event staffing managers to be able to review your credentials for employment, including your industry expertise and background.

Building Your Tradeshow Casting Profile and How to Use it as a Job Search Tool

1. Complete your Profile.  Create a detailed profile on Castango, by filling out all sections. If an employer sees blank spaces in your profile they will not see you as qualified as someone with a completed one.

2. Add a Professional Photo.  This is the most important part of your profile. No selfies please!  A professional headshot is your calling card to the industry.  You need to have a photograph that represents you and your personality.

3. BIO. The bio section of your profile is a good way to highlight your background and career highlights. Maybe you cheered for a popular sports team, or won an award for your talent.  This is a great way to let employers know more about you and what makes you special.

4. Skills, Industry Expertise, and Language.  This is where you list what you are good at. Companies and agencies often use the search field to find what they are looking for.  Using keywords will make it easier for your profile to be found in search results.

5. Work History. Use Castango as part of your job search strategy – it will help expedite your job search as a trade show model, brand ambassador, spokes model, promotional model, etc. Include your employment (current and past) Did you work at CES, Fashion Week, Comi-Con ? List your top events.

We hope these tips will help you get the most out of your Castango account and membership.
