An Article That Discusses About Becoming A Nanny And Gaining A Good Career Opportunity

By Jenny Pascal

Nannies have very rewarding jobs. Of course they make a living. But a nanny job is far more than that. Nannies also get the love and bonding of a relationship with a child, and with the child’s family.

Being a nanny is far more than just qualifying for a job and then going to work. A nanny is a part of the family, a friend, a guide, a teacher. The nanny in fact helps the child to grow into the person they will become. It’s a big job and an important one.

For interested individuals, there is a basic process to go through to find a position. Some potential nannies contact families directly. Others go through agencies. To get a job as a nanny, a candidate must be legal to work in the US and must be at least 18 years old. A candidate who is not yet 18 can get a job as helper, but this requires adult supervision.

Families want consistency for their children, and so usually opt for nannies who can commit to at least a year. For candidates who are not ready to commit that amount of time, it’s a good idea to try other child care work until they are sure.

For prospective nannies, it is important to be sure that abilities match the required traits of a child care provider. Unless you are patient, have a lot of energy, are willing to work hard, and are reliable and good natured, you should perhaps find other work. A creative attitude and the ability to be flexible are most important.

Candidates who think they would make a good fit can apply for positions online. Often this is done through an agency website. There are forms to fill in, and generally they need to upload a detailed resume also. The agency will verify the information in the forms and resume, and will also verify the candidate’s legal work status.

Part of the process is a detailed and thorough background check. Assuming that the check results in a clean record, the candidate’s name is then passed on to possible clients.

Families will screen candidates to see who sounds like they would fit their needs, then the chosen candidates will get the chance to meet parents.
