When somebody exactly full fills the requirements he matches a job to 100%.

If he has additionally any "nice to have" features, a higher rating or more years of experience then required, he gets additional percentage-points. This takes him then apart from other less experienced artists. How exactly the calculation gets explained under "How does the matching-percent-number gets calculated that I see?"

If you want, we will inform you about new jobs that get posted. To activate the alerts you just have to log-in your account and then on the "My Account" page you can select "My Job Alerts" in the menu on the right side.

Additionally you can also define different keywords. We will then also inform you when new jobs get posted which have any of the given keyword in the job-title.

To just get informed, when you match to a job to 100% and the keyword is in the job-title, you also additionally have to check the check box in front of "Inform me only when keywords AND knowledge is matching. If not selected, we will inform you when keywords OR skills are matching".

There are many possibilities. You can use one or a combination of the following:

  • Set-up the alerts. We send you an email when a new matching job got posted

When an artist exactly full fills the requirements he matches to exactly 100%. To honor people with more experience and any of the provided "nice to have" features they can earn even more percent-points. It works like that:

  • When Artist exactly full fills everything he has 100%
  • If he fulfills any of the "Nice to have" features, he gets +5% for each of them
  • For every additional Rating-Point, he receives +1%
