“Our time with Debbie was brief, but positive in every way. We originally sent her email wherein she responded that same day. We then met her at my office for an interview. She made such an impression that we invited her to have a playdate with my children, who are 2 and 6 years old. We have had nannies for our children for over 6 years and have seen the good and the bad. She was actually the first nanny we invited to meet them after having spoken to and met approximately 35 other nannies. When she arrived at our house, she immediately took an interest in the children. She was very attentive and asked questions to see how we would like her to care for our children. Following the playdate, we offered her a full-time nanny position with our family. At her first day and each day thereafter she was punctual, pleasant, couteous, professional and respectful. The children were her priority. Through no fault of her own, our prior nanny (who had been with us for 1 1/2 years) advised that she was no longer relocating (which was the reason we were looking for a nanny). After much consideration, we felt it was best for the children to be with the nanny they had known. During our brief time with Debbie, it was truly a pleasure to have her in our house and as our nanny. Please feel free to contact us with any questions. Sincerely, Stacy”
You have chosen to hire a nanny for your children, but where do you begin? You need to recruit nanny candidates from somewhere. Where can you find a pool of good nanny candidates? And then what? What is the best way to screen nanny candidates and select the perfect nanny for your family?
We at Nannies4hire.com make the process quick and easy for you. We have a large, searchable database of available nanny candidates. When you find nanny candidates that meet your expectations, based on their database information, you can access their contact information. If you list your nanny position on Nannies4hire.com, nanny candidates can contact you as well.
Call or e-mail the candidates that seem to be a good fit for your family . . . set up a telephonic or in-person interview. These first-round interviews should include parents and nanny candidates only (i.e., do not include your children in these first-round interviews).
Nannies4hire.com provides you with a host of online information to help you recruit and employ a nanny. Suggested interview questions provided by Nannies4hire.com are quite convenient at this point in the nanny screening and selection process.
Once you have completed the first-round interviews of your nanny candidates, remove from consideration any nanny candidates that, as a result of the interviews, no longer seem to be among your best candidates.
Call or e-mail your remaining nanny candidates to schedule a second-round interview, this time including your children.
Again, utilize online information from Nannies4hire.com to prepare for and carry out these second-round interviews.
