Location – Under Settings, add your home zip code and work area to find jobs within your criteria

Years of Experience – Add the number of years of experience you have in your Main Trade. Your Main Trade is the trade in which you have the most experience. For example, if you’re a Carpenter who has some experience in electrical and plumbing work, you’d choose Carpenter.

Skills – Click edit to check off typical Skills for your Main Trade. Your Main Trade is the trade in which you have the most experience. See Years of Experience section above.

If you are at helper or junior mechanic level, add tasks that you’ve done for at least 1 year.

Submit photos for Equip approval. The more “high-quality”photos you have approved by Equip, the higher your Profile Completeness.
