Posting An Opportunity

Updated on April 2, 2024

Within Lanced, you have the platform to share all your company’s opportunities, whether it’s organizing auditions, casting calls, or scouting for new artistic team members.

An opportunity comprises two key components:

  1. Opportunity Workflow: This establishes the process of how individuals can apply and participate and how you can efficiently review and communicate with them.
  2. Opportunity Post: Here, you create a comprehensive post detailing your opportunity, specifying your requirements, and outlining the materials applicants need to submit. Additionally, an Opportunity Post includes essential elements such as a title, image, contract information, and deadlines.

In this guide, we’ll walk you through the process of creating an Opportunity Post. For configuring the Opportunity Workflow, we recommend viewing our separate articles tailored to specific opportunity types, as workflows may differ.

Create A New Opportunity #

In the side panel, head over to ‘opportunities’. This is where you can view all your current opportunities from your company. To start a new opportunity, click ‘Create New’. You will now be guided through the following 5 steps:

  1. Opportunity Settings (this is the Opportunity Workflow)
  2. Employment Type
  3. Job Post (this is the Opportunity Post)
  4. Connect Project
  5. Review & Post

We will skip the Opportunity Settings for this article. To learn about the various workflows, you can view our articles on ‘auditions’, ‘castings’ and ‘job calls’.

Employement Type #

Please select what type of contract you are offering to let applicants know what they can expect.

Step 2/3/4 are optional steps. However, on Lanced we are striving to create a platform that is transparant and fair. We enourage you to share as many details regarding the contract and pay so that artists can make informed decisions on whether this opportunity is suitable for them.

If you meet certain national labour agreements in terms of what pay you offer and what costs you cover, please share this here as well. It will benefit the brand of your company and make you more trustworthy.

Job Post: Title & Photo #

Fill out your audition title, location and cover image. Note that your opportunity wil already show the name of your company, so you do not need to repeat the name of your company in the title.

Job Post: Description & Dates #

This is where you can add some more information on your company and/or upcoming project. Further we also encourage you to communicate a ‘receive answe by’ date so that applicants know by when they can expect a response.

Job Post: Requirements #

In Step 8, you have the possibility to share more about the type of person you are looking for. If applicants need to meet certain requirements, this is where to communicate them.

In Step 9, you can set the materials that applicants need to add to their applicants. On the left you can select what type of media file (video, photo, audio or documents) and on the right you can give it a title, indicating what they need to include. You could for example say that you want a showreel or a 5 minutes improvisation video.

Review, Save Draft and Post #

After filling out at the steps, you can review your opportunity and post the call. When you post the call, Lanced shares it on the platform and will generate a URL for you. This URL can be used on your website or social media and directs candidates to your call on Lanced.

In the next article, we’ll discuss the workflow functionalities of auditions.
