An organization shared a link to an opportunity with me. What do I do next?
When an organization shares a link to an opportunity with you, they would like you to register for the opportunity by submitting a form.
Here are the steps to register for the opportunity:
1. Click on the link that was shared by the organization
2. Click on the Register button on the bottom-right of your screen, which will prompt you to sign up as a volunteer on Vome
3. Once you create your profile, you will be brought to the registration form, which you should fill out the information requested by the organization
4. Click Submit
That's it! Once you register for the opportunity, you will be brought to your Opportunities page on Vome, which will show you that you are pending for the opportunity. Once the admin approves your registration, you will be approved, which will allow you to begin reserving spots to shifts!
If the opportunity has a pre-defined screening checklist, you will see it on your Opportunities page. Please make sure to complete all the screening checklist elements that were requested by the organization!
If the difference between opportunities and shifts does not seem clear, a helpful way to think about it is that you just applied to a new job. Once your application has been approved, you can then schedule yourself to shifts for that job. This is how opportunities and shifts work on Vome!
If you are facing any issues with the steps above, you can walk through the detailed process shown below.
