We’ve just introduced some enhancements to our “role tags”, which you create or edit from your “edit profile” form.
Role tags are no longer just a simple list of terms – you can now enter further information on each role.
In particular, let me draw your attention to the “Career stage in this role” field. We introduced this because we found that, at both ends of the experience spectrum, people were uneasy with well-established professionals appearing alongside those that were just getting started. In particular, and to our initial surprise, many inexperienced people (e.g. first year students) felt embarrassed about stating, for example, that they were a “Director” when they’d only played that role on one student film.
It’s completely up to you where you want to pitch yourself – we know there are many highly experienced students!
