No - While the industry will be able to look for writers by a certain location or experience level, you won’t ever be excluded from a search simply because you filled out your profile. For example, if a producer is looking for an Atlanta, GA based writer since that’s a growing entertainment hub, whether your profile is blank or is filled out with, let’s say, Pittsburgh, PA, you will not show up. However, if that same producer searched for Pittsburgh, you’d only show up if it was filled out. As such, it always makes sense to fill out your profile -- it’ll put you in more search results.
