How can I find a good nanny job?
To get started, sort nanny jobs in your area by distance from your location, pay rate, and the type of nanny jobs you are interested in such as part time or full time, live-in or live-out. Then, create a nanny profile specifying your skills and services. Make sure your profile is as detailed as possible. This can help families review your profile and decide whether you’re a good fit for their children. Then, start applying to the jobs that fit your availability and interests. Alternatively, families will be able to contact you if they would like to set up an interview to work with you.
How should I prepare to interview for a nanny job?
The goal of your interview is to make the family feel comfortable having you in their home with their kids. To make sure you're adequately prepared, go over the job description carefully so you know exactly what the family is looking for in a nanny. Spend some time writing down a few questions you think the family will ask and what your answers will be. Don't expect the interview to go exactly how you've planned, but preparing a variety of questions and scenarios can help you feel less nervous when you're in the family's house. Don't be shy to ask questions you have about the position as well. You'll want to leave the interview feeling comfortable with the job, just like you hope the family will be comfortable with hiring you.
Are families hiring for nanny jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic?
Child care is still a much-needed service and families are relying on nannies to help them on a daily basis. To help keep both families and nannies comfortable, AyiConnect have recently added an enhancement to the helper's profile where you can indicate if you are COVID vaccinated or prefer to discuss with them directly. Before working in anyone's home, you should review the latest CDC safety guidelines so you can feel prepared to minimize the risk of catching or spreading the coronavirus.
