Shootang is all about connecting clients with crew, so to clarify, we are not a recruitment company. We are not involved in the selection or interview process of crew, which means, we do not get involved with hiring, accepting or declining any work on behalf of members. We are also unable to provide any feedback on applications for jobs on our website. Best of luck.

We understand people have different ways of navigating around a site. So we have provided you with 2 options to reach the editing section of your profile. One on the left and one on the right! once you have signed in.

Option 1 (left) 

The left side Navigation menu may be minimised so click on the top icon to maximise the menu.

Select profile. With your profile visible, in the about me section, click on the edit button to and enter in your details. There are 12 tabs all up to enter information to complete your profile. Enter as much or as little information as you wish to disclose. The more information you enter allows prospective employers to view this on your profile.


Option 2 (right)  

In the top right corner click on your name the Profile menu appears.

Select profile then edit. Now you can enter as much or as little information as you choose.

This is up to you! Start with what you feel comfortable sharing. Your profile allows you to show case your work. There are 12 tabs for you to enter information. When signing up, there are mandatory fields, then the rest is up to you. If you are looking for work, it’s always great to let employers know some information about your work history, use the Credits tab for this. Think of adding a simple ‘summary’ on the Employment tab and use the Skills tab to highlight what soft and hard skills you have. The Equipment tab is also useful to let employers know what equipment you have worked with. 


The more information you provide, the less questions an employer needs to ask. On the flip side, employers don’t have time to read pages and pages of information. Stick to the KISS method (Keep It Simple Stupid).


There are many professionals working in our industry who don’t have a CV. Do not let this deter you from having your own CV on file. The reason why many professionals do not have a CV is, after having worked in the industry for many years, this crew is successful with obtaining work through ‘word of mouth’. This crew is known for their work ethic, ability, and personality among colleagues on the job. However, employers will generally request a CV, especially if they have not worked with you prior or you have not come recommended. Either way, keep a CV or multiple (depending on the role) on file ready to attach when applying for jobs on Shootang.

You can also upload your CV using your Profile menu and selecting Documents. When uploading your CV employers are able to view this on your profile. To use this feature you will need to subscribe. We recommend not listing any personal information like date of birth, address, etc.


When applying for a job, each CV and cover letter needs to be tailored to suit the role you are applying for.

Crew have multiple skills, so if you are applying for a Director’s Assistant role, the application needs to reflect the skills relevant to a DA role. If you are applying for a Director’s role, then your CV would reflect the skills required for Director role. These two roles vary in skill requirements and responsibility. A CV needs to reflect the role.

If a CV does not reflect the job post, it’s likely the candidate will not meet the requirements and receive a pass.


With all industries and seeking employment, the standard way to apply for a job is to send a tailored CV and Cover Letter.

Shootang Recommendations


Provide as much information as possible. Time is precious and being informed assists applicants on deciding to apply for the job or not. It will also prevent wasting everyone’s time.



Providing budget information is essential to applicants deciding if they want to apply for a job. With the knowledge we have gained from our Facebook groups, it’s in everyone’s best interest to disclose the budget for the role. If in doubt, always add “negotiable” or “based on experience”. Crew have varying levels of experience from entry level to Professionals. Plus, rates vary across sectors.

It’s frustrating when you don’t hear “yay” or “nay” from an employer. It takes precious time to prepare your application and as a professional courtesy, it would be appropriate to learn either way of the outcome.


Unfortunately notifying candidates of the job status is out of our control, but we do feel your pain. Employers have an option to mark a job as “position filled

For subscribed members, there is an option to notify each candidate of the outcome of their application. This status appears in your profile under My Job Applications.


However, we’ll let you in on a little secret. This is a generalisation, employers can receive applications in the hundreds. With so many applications, employers don’t have capacity to individually amend the job status for each applicant. Hence why, only the short listed applicants are contacted.

When employers are looking for staff/crew, this is an additional task. It’s still BAU (business as usual) as well as processing any new engagements.


In the left menu, selcct My Job Applications.


Every job you apply for will be listed here.

When you click on the “apply now” button in the job post, an email will open.

We suggest asking your questions to the employer here.
