Creating a OneSpace Account
Creating a OneSpace account is easy. All we need is your name, email address and agreement to our terms of service. You can edit this information whenever you see fit.
You also have the option to create your account using LinkedIn. Doing so makes it quick and easy to fill out your profile, as we automatically pull your information directly from LinkedIn.
After you create your account, you’ll have the option to fill out your profile. Completing your profile allows you to showcase your expertise and helps us match you with the best available work. If you didn’t create your account using LinkedIn, you can import your profile information at this step.
The “About Me” section of your profile contains information such as your name, location, website, photo and a short biography. You can also provide an alias, which is essentially a username or nickname. Beneath that, you can list your skills.
There’s also a section for you to detail your professional history, including the company name, your title, your employment dates, and a short description of your responsibilities.
The “Work Preferences” section gives prospective employers information about both the type of work you enjoy and your personal work habits. You can enter details such as your target hourly rate and your weekly work capacity.
In the “Profile Visibility” section, you can control who has access to the information in your profile:
- “Public” means that your profile is publically searchable on search engines. Anyone and everyone can access the link to your profile.
- “OneSpace” means that only OneSpace clients can view your profile.
- “Private” means that only your preferred alias is exposed to clients.
You can return to your profile to edit it at any time. To learn how to get the most out of your profile, be sure to watch our video titled, “Making a Standout Profile.”
Next, you’ll need to connect a verified PayPal account in order to get paid for your work. If you don’t have a verified PayPal account, you can follow the link to set one up. To learn more about verification, refer to the details on this page. You can skip this step, but you won’t be able to access work until you’ve connected a verified PayPal account.
After this, you’ll be prompted to take a brief tour that shows you the main aspects of the WorkStation platform. Then you can earn qualifications and start working!
