What information do I need in my resume?
Click here for a step-by-step breakdown on how to fill out the resume form, as well as some extra hints to help you along the way.
Keep in mind, resumes are listed in order of those most recently updated, so it's a good idea to update as often as possible; you can also click the "Instant Update" bullet point on your log-in page. This ensures that when companies search the resumes, yours will be at or near the top of the list.
How do I create additional resumes?

Applying for a job you can select which resume you wish to display.
How do I create an additional resume?
If you are a premium member, you will have a tab-selection on top of your main profile page.
You can add a new resume by clicking the "+" tab.
A pop-up appears, which lets you pick a job type to assign to the new resume.
How do I use my additional resume?
When you apply for a job you can select which profile you wish to send.
How do I edit my online resume?
Click the green "edit resume" box to the right of your profile. After clicking on "edit resume" an accordion menu of selections will appear; which include resume settings, contact information, files uploaded, and resume details. Select "Resume Details" These selections you can edit/update. Look on your main profile page for tips on how to improve your resume, and reminders of empty sections within your resume. Your progress bar, which is on the right hand side of your main profile page, will keep you up to date on your current progress in completing your Media Match online resume and profile.
How do I upload word documents, pictures and reels?
Go to "upload/remove files" on the menu bar on the right side of your profile. Click the media, pictures or document tab and then upload your files.
How do the emails work?
You will receive an email alert every time a job is posted that fits your selected criteria (job type and location), which you can use to apply directly to the job; your application includes a direct link to your online resume that the employer can access. You will also receive a weekly email entitled 'Here's Looking at You, Kid!' letting you know whenever a company has viewed your resume. It is important that your email address is correctly entered and remains up to date, as it is our primary means of contacting you.
Where do you get your job vacancies?
We scour the internet to bring you all kinds of quality film and TV jobs; job vacancies are also posted by the employers themselves. Registered subscribers can apply for these jobs either by responding to the email alert, or by scanning the jobs board and clicking "contact the employer". We recommend always including a covering letter with your resume. Lastly, It is worth noting that while the jobs board is very popular and proving to be a great success, most positions are filled by companies using the search facility to find people.
Can I apply to any job I like?
While we understand your desire to have your resume viewed by as many companies as possible, we do request that you only apply for positions which match your qualifications and experience. For instance, when a job says "3 years experience in editing required", this should read as off-limits to an intern. We ask you follow this simple rule so that companies receive the applicants they are looking for, and therefore will continue to use the Media Match site.
What is the Forum?
This is where you can network with a growing community of film and TV professionals, either by putting up a notice, joining in one of the ongoing discussions, or just having a browse.
