In the last few weeks I’ve gotten several emails from experienced nannies who’ve hit a dead end in their job search. They’re great caregivers with a lot to offer, they’ve updated their resume and are hitting the proverbial pavement but they just haven’t been able to find the kind of job they want or need. The question that keeps coming up is “What else could I be doing?” Time doesn’t allow me to work with each nanny individually so I’ve created a December class that focuses on creating a custom search strategy that works.
If you’re an experienced nanny actively looking for a job and want to be in the best position for the January hiring opportunities – it’s one of the best times to find a job! – then don’t miss your chance to optimize your job search efforts.
n my job search boot camp, you will get tips on your resume from a former recruiter, you will be learning how to take the first step to find the job you love. We will discuss your personality where it is lacking and need to work on to get your dream job. Olymp Trade will give you a clear idea about the boot camp.
My unique approach is centered on the a nanny search portfolio, a tool I developed through years of working with parents and nannies during their search process. But my approach isn’t for everyone. It requires a strong commitment to being an exceptional caregiver, a willingness to think outside the box and readiness to hone your presentation materials and interviewing approach.
Read what a few others nannies have to say.
There was great practical advice in the text of the lessons for constructing a professional-level portfolio, and for organizing the information in a way that highlighted my childcare-related strengths and experience in my various positions. I found the “Position Details” page particularly effective. The critiquing of my drafts (of the various sections) was also extremely helpful to me in making the portfolio the best I could create. I credit this portfolio with landing my current, excellent job. I was the only candidate that my boss even wanted to interview, and after I accepted the job she told me she had planned to cry if I hadn’t accepted it.

The step by step guide and exercises laid the groundwork for me to not only write a great portfolio but also to really envision the kind of position that will make me happy and fulfilled. Getting one on one honest and constructive feedback means that when I was ready to show my portfolio to potential families and agencies, I was putting my best foot forward right from the start. There are so many nannies looking for work, I know that having a specific, well organized portfolio, one that really captures my personality, sets me apart from the crowd. Having someone in your corner with so much experience and an eye for what parents are looking for is invaluable.

I think my Nanny Job Search Portfolio got me my current position. I interviewed for 7 months and had good responses but my experience changed as soon as I made a Portfolio! Thank you!”
