How To Get A Nanny Job When You Don’t Have Much Experience
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

'Experience required' - How often have you ever read that? This could be a source of frustration. How could you acquire some experience without having worked as a nanny?

Here are some advices that may help to be hired as a nanny:


No matter if you want to join a nanny agency, reply to an ad or looking for a potential job through friends, you have to manage your search like a full-time job. Invest enough time and energy into making a first class resume, then make a follow-up call to ensure it was received. If there is no contact number to call, wait a couple of days before sending your resume again. Determination is essential as it will make you stand out of the crowd.


Make it right to the point, accurate and ensure key elements are at the top or prominently displayed. List appropriate skills first and structure work experience in chronological order. You can include a few personal data about your personality, hobbies and abilities. When giving detailed information regarding your past experience, make it positive and professional.

Professional Look

Jeans could be appropriate for nanny work, yet an intelligent and professional look is definitely suggested for attending job interviews. Smart dress wear and clean hair/nails will give you a professional look. It's also considered as a proof of respect towards your potential employer. It shows that you are well prepared and really serious regarding the nanny function.


The power of personal recommendations should not be overlooked. Getting referred to a position by a friend, work associate or acquaintance is one of the most effective way to get a job. Employers will really feel more relax when they already know something about a prospective employee, particularly if it is positive work referrals. You have to be specific with your friends, relatives and business acquaintances about what you are searching for. If you joined nanny agency, never fail to maintain regular contact to make sure they remember you! You'd like them to consider you first when the perfect nanny job becomes available.

Be a Hard Worker

When you have found your dream job, make sure you don’t lose it! Do the best you can and put a smile on your face. Display a respectful attitude and never bring your own problems at work. This could be difficult at times, but private and professional concerns need to be separate.

Never Rest On Your Laurels.

Keep searching for new approaches to communicate, play and interact with the children. An optimistic, proactive character is usually appreciated by employers. Solid relationships may generate a rise in your salary, better working conditions or excellent referrals for future nanny positions.
