Section 1: Hiring a Nanny
Unlike other professions, nannies work in a family’s home, where they can have a close, personal relationship with the children in their care and the parents. Thus, it’s important parents have the resources to find, interview, background check and hire the right nanny for their needs. To help, the US Nanny Institute has published the Ultimate Guide for How to Hire a Nanny.
Section 2: Finding a Nanny Job
Nannies and the families that employ them may hold different views about what being a nanny means. Differences may include compensation, qualifications, training, and skills. It’s important to match the right nanny with the right family, matching the training and experience for each role. When seeking a new position, having a modern, visual resume and a LinkedIn profile can advance your job search.
