Vouches, Followers, & Recommendations
What is a Vouch?
A Vouch is a stamp of approval you can give to creatives. Vouches should only be given to people you've worked with and are willing to put your name behind. To Vouch for someone just click the "Add Vouch" button in the left column of their profile. Anytime you Vouch for someone they will be notified by email.
Remember: A vouch isn't a "like" button. Only vouch for people you've worked with.
Only hirers can see the list of people who have Vouched for a person on their profile. Other creatives will only see the number of Vouches, no names.
We encourage you to search and Vouch for people you know. Your Vouch will help creatives increase their chances of getting hired and allow hiring managers to feel confident booking new talent because of the endorsements of people they already know and trust.
How do I Vouch for someone?
To Vouch for someone just click the "Add Vouch" button on their profile. That person will be notified by email that you Vouched for them.
Who can see Vouches?
Only hirers have the ability to see who has Vouched for a creative. If you're a hirer, click the Vouch box and the list of names will appear.
Creatives can only see the total number of Vouches another person has received.
A Vouch means someone has put their name on the line for a creative. Because people might want to be selective with their Vouches, we have chosen to keep names private and only visible to the people making decisions on who to hire.
If you're a creative, you can see who has vouched for you by clicking on the "Vouches" button.
What is a Follower?
Followers are managers who want to keep tabs on a creative's availability.
Hirers follow their favorite creatives. The creatives are then conveniently organized by availability on the hirer's homepage, or Dashboard, for quick & easy viewing. The hirers also receive notifications when any of those creatives update their availability.
Creatives are notified by email when a new person begins following them.
What is a Recommendation?
Creatives can recommend up to 10 other peers who they stand behind. Hirers can check out the Recommendation list at the bottom of their profile to find more creatives they may love.
The "People I Like Working With" list is where you can suggest potential partners for gigs, making life a little easier for a manager who may be looking for a team.
What's the difference between a Vouch and a Recommendation?
A Vouch is a stamp of approval given to creatives by other creatives or hirers. Vouches are unlimited endorsements you can give out to anyone you've worked with.
A Recommendation is more personal. Each creative is given only 10 spots to recommend creatives they trust, that they would suggest to take a job in their place. It's also a great way to discover talent.
Can I follow other creatives?
Not yet, though we’re currently developing new features that will build social and collaborative elements to the community.
