5 Top Tips on Landing your Dream Job via The Dots

Promote yourself, be discovered & get credit

We are a home for all the people, teams and brands that bring ideas to life. Here are a few tips to help you make a stand out profile - getting you noticed by your favourite companies and clients!

Post Projects

Beautifully present yourself in a few easy steps. Promote projects you’ve worked on; this could be a portfolio piece, an event you’ve organised, an article you’ve written or just a work-in-progress.
A creative trinity is a must. Pick 3 projects at least - this makes your profile look amazing. Remember to use 800 pixels or more for the ideal resolution.

Tag Collaborators

Be discovered easily breezily by tagging collaborators and clients in your projects. If you can't find anybody to tag, make sure to invite them - we love seeing creative teams.
Find and follow people you know, creators who inspire you, and companies that excite you - helping you build a network of contacts, collaborators and clients.
Finally, don't forget to add employment history to uncover trusted connections with teams you may have worked with along the way.

Get Featured

The Dots is an extremely visual space where striking images or videos really rouses our team and the wider sphere to engage. Alongside visual creativity, there’s room for audio and prose-orientated projects - but do remember that exciting and sharply presented content will always strengthen your case.
Project thumbnails are very important and should be HQ top notch. This is the first image that our team and amazing community will see. Like a big, bright red door with a gorgeous brass knocker on it, thumbnails tempt people’s curiosity.

Set Up Job Alerts

Save job searches to be first to hear of the latest opportunities that hit The Dots. Job alert emails will be sent straight to your inbox. Easy!
