There are many families out there right now looking for compassionate, experienced nannies. As a nanny looking for a job, it can sometimes feel overwhelming to find the right placement. Here, we will provide some important details on how you can best conduct your nanny job search.
Step 1: Work with a staffing agency.
At Household Staffing, we come alongside you as a team mate to find the best job possible. We want our clients to find the right nanny and we want our job candidates to find the right family. We have had success for more than two decades helping nannies find long-term roles in homes around the country. Whether you’re looking for a live-in position or a short-term summer nanny job, we can match you with the right job.
Step 2: Create a stand-out cover letter and resume.
One of the best things you can do to make a good first impression is to have a well-written, organized cover letter and resume. This is your opportunity to stand out from the many other resumes that a family is looking through, giving them a glimpse into not just your experience, but your personality and passions, too. Put your most recent experience at the top and do a through review of both documents to ensure your grammar and spelling are correct.
Step 3: Know about the job you’re interviewing for.
If you get the opportunity to interview for a job, read the job description well, so you can ask questions about it and speak to the specific role. This shows that you are interested in the position and that you have done your research ahead of time.
Working as a nanny is a rewarding job. You not only get to earn a good income, but it also gives you the opportunity to be a part of a family that cares about you.
