Job Poster Experience

Use Venue Name

Instead of having to look up the address of your venue, simply type the name in the Location Name field while posting your job. Google Maps will grab the address. For example, typing in Madison Square Garden will automatically populate 4 Pennsylvania Plaza, New York, NY 10001 in the Venue Address field.

Athletic Trainer Experience

Add Safe Sport Credential

SafeSport has been added as an additional credential in your profile. If you have SafeSport, you can add it to your profile which helps your application stick out.

Download EMR PDFs

Athletic Trainers have always been able to document injuries directly through our in-app Emergency Medical Record system. Now, athletic trainers can download a PDF copy for themselves.

Check back for frequent EMR updates this summer!

Job Poster Experience

Job Creation Flow

You can now use the “Multi-day shift” feature to post a job for a singular athletic trainer that spans consecutive days. This is great for camp jobs. The payment will be a flat-rate, processed at the end of the last shift on the last day.

Job Edits

When copying a shift, you will no longer see it marked as “Copy” in your dashboard. Be sure to update the name of your job to give athletic trainers the correct details when applying.

Dashboard Changes

For multi-location jobs, you can now view all shifts across all locations in one chronological view. All upcoming shifts for a job will display, regardless of location.

The Finance Report now has a new filter, where you can search the AT Payment amount.

Within your “Provide AT Feedback” widget, athletic trainers will only be listed once per event.

Job Poster Experience

The Job Poster experience was completely overhauled to provide Go4 users with a simplified platform for hiring ATs and managing jobs.

Job Poster Dashboard

The new dashboard calls attention to essential actions. There are four sections: Applicants to Review, Shifts w/ No Applications, Shift Modifications, and AT Feedback Requests. Additionally, we added a Resource Feed, and all views in the platform were rebuilt including Drafts, Upcoming Jobs, and the Finance report.

Job Postings

Direct user feedback was used to redesign Job postings to be more intuitive for those who create them, and more informational for the athletic trainers who view them. 

Custom Credential Requirements

Job Posters can add additional credential requirements to a job so ATs know what they need before they apply. This will eliminate back-and-forth communication before the job.

Supplies/Equipment Checklist

A new supplies/equipment checklist will clarify what the hiring organization will / will not provide for athletic trainers. 

Pricing Flexibility

Pay rates can be set per shift. This is helpful for multi-day events since a shift’s duration, day of the week, and times impact its attractiveness for ATs. 

Athletic Trainer Profiles/Applications

Enhanced athletic trainer profiles better inform hiring decisions. More information was added to showcase past experience and Go4 work history.

New additions to athletic trainer profiles include a Reliability Score, which compares the number of jobs worked vs. Callouts (previously labeled Decommits), and the most recent rating that a Job Poster gave the AT. Ratings (Would you hire this AT again?) are kept private and are only shown to the organization that provides the rating. 

Hiring Deadlines

We’ve addressed the #1 piece of feedback— the hiring workflow takes too long. Now, job posters have 7 days to accept an athletic trainer’s application before it expires, and athletic trainers must confirm a job within 24 hours of being accepted. 

Athletic Trainer Experience

More insights into a job. Job postings will be more descriptive and include expanded job details, supplies & equipment lists, and custom credential requirements. Additionally, applications will be accepted or, unfortunately, expire after seven days. Athletic trainers must confirm a job within 24 hours of being accepted.

Callout Policy & Reliability Score

Decommits were changed to Callouts. Callouts are tracked on an athletic trainer’s profile if they call out from a confirmed job within seven days of when it starts. Callouts are used in an AT’s Reliability Score, which Job Posters see as part of a job application. Reliability Scores compare the number of jobs worked to the number of callouts.

Marketplace Feedback

Job Posters can provide feedback on athletic trainers who work for their organizations. The feedback is not shared with the AT or other organizations, but the rating (Would I hire this AT again?) will be visible on the AT’s profile when they apply for future jobs with the same organization.

Similarly, athletic trainers can provide feedback on the organizations they work for. The feedback is not shared with the organization. Go4 uses the feedback to improve our platform and create content for the athletic training community, creating a better environment for all involved.

Job Marketing

New “Big Money Shift” alerts notify local athletic trainers when a job is posted at $50 or more per hour. These shifts are filled faster than regular shifts. Additionally, athletic trainers are sent a special alert for high-paying jobs posted within two days of their start time.

Referrals

Athletic trainers can earn money on Go4 without even working a job. They submit referrals on the Go4 app, and when a referral hires through Go4, the referring athletic trainer gets paid.
