Last week we started this series, working with Care.com, to bring you information, resources and ideas to make your online job search safe, successful and smart!
Let’s start at the beginning.
Gathering your information.
Which skills should you list? Don’t let the babysitter term deter you. These tips can be used for a nanny, babysitter, pet sitter and more.
Many nannies are turning to the world wide web to create online resumes and portfolios. Here are two examples of what nannies have done to get their information into the hands of potential families.
Both nannies gave permission to use their websites and information.
Even if you don’t have your own website, you can make your online profile the best it can be. Care.com has these tips to New Year, New Profile, New Job for updating and presenting your information.
One important aspect to include working with an online search site is a Background Check. What is a background check? “Background checks are searches through databases, registries and other public and private sources. While they aren’t always 100% accurate or complete, they can be very helpful when making a hiring decision, because they can uncover potential warning signs about candidates.”
Once you have your profile current and your search is ready, here are 8 Ways to Find a Job Faster.
What has worked for you in preparing your resume / portfolio? Have you had a background check done through one of the online sites? If so, what was your experience?
Coming Up! Part Three will include Getting the Responses from Families, How to Search for Families and Responding to inquiries.
