How to complete your Online Profile

The first step to becoming an all-star RMIT On Demand applicant is completing your profile. Imagine that your profile is your shop front. The more attractive you make it look, the more likely you will get selected for jobs. To be successful on the Sidekicker platform it is essential that you communicate your skills and experiences through your profile. Your profile is what businesses see before approving you to work a job.

Some advice…

  • Ensure that you are using Google Chrome as a browser

  • The web app is most compatible with laptops however tablets do work

  • Always save your changes, the save button is always at the bottom of your page

  • Have a backup of your work – write up your profile in a word document and copy and paste the text onto your profile

  • How much to write? Businesses don’t like to hire people they don’t know. Keep your writing professional and concise but let businesses know the important stuff about yourself and let them know why they should hire you.


STEP 1: Log into your Sidekicker account and go to top right hand corner, click on “View profile” and “Edit Profile”.

STEP 2: Now it’s time to complete your profile. Please note, you will have a new profile pic taken during your onboarding session, so we’ll upload that for you.
