As you already know from our Welcome Pack, completing all the advanced sections of your EXTRAS profile is really important as it allows us to find you suitable roles based on your attributes, experience and skills.
When we upgraded to the new website earlier this year we moved away from 'freeform' options, i.e. those where you are able to type whatever you want. Instead, you now have to select your skills using the dropdown menus.
Whilst this restricts the options that you can select, it also makes it far easier for Casters to find you if you have selected and completed everything correctly.
Profile Tip: be realistic - if you over exaggerate your skills, where you can work, etc., this will only work against you!
This is where we need your help...
If you have a suggestion for an option that you feel could improve your profile and help us to find you suitable roles - maybe a specific skill, qualification, clothing item, etc. - please log in and Comment* underneath this Blog Post. Even if you don't have a suggestion of your own, you can still help by giving someone else's comment a +1 by clicking the thumbs-up icon if you agree.
If you have already emailed us previously to make a suggestion, thank you - we have already taken your email into consideration. Based on the suggestions made already, we will definitely be adding...
- options for Traditional Musical Instruments from around the world
- East Yorkshire as an area (sorry we missed it initially!)
- Arnis, Eskrima and Kali in the Martial Arts field
- Skydiving, Parachuting and Base Jumping in Adventure Sports
- Occupations such as Models, Fishmongers, Priests
- Specialist Clothing including vintage and gothic options
We don't promise to add all the suggestions made, but we will raise them with the Casting Team and add them to the profile if we feel that they will help in the future.
