Recruiting Babysitters

Posted by Jaidene Anderlini on Nov 9, 2018 5:02:00 AM

I can't tell you how hard it is to find people that take babysitting seriously. During my time operating an agency that places babysitters for ongoing, permanent, or on-call positions I've heard and seen it all, and I'm still surprised at the laissez faire approach that people try to get away with when talking to me about why they want to babysit. If I were a parent I would want someone like me to take on the recruiting process. It is one of the worst parts of doing what I do. People don't show up for interviews, don't return your calls, show up late for interviews, come to an interview dressed inappropriately, and so many other things.

Do You Have a Bad Babysitter?

Posted by Jaidene Anderlini on Mar 6, 2018 3:03:00 AM

There are so many horror stories that go the rounds, and posted on You Tube about horrible babysitters. The images of a babysitter or nanny violently shaking a baby or brutally spanking a child are images that parents can't get out of their heads when they leave their children with a babysitter.

A Babysitting Agency Can take the Worry Out

Posted by Jaidene Anderlini on Jan 9, 2018 11:20:00 AM

As an owner of a babysitting agency I have real experience with finding qualified babysitters, and I'm always surprised by some of the relaxed attitudes there are out there about babysitting. Like having a living person's life in your hands isn't serious. I've had people show up for interviews with friends in tow, ask what's the big deal about babysitting, wonder why having some college is important, write resumes chock full of grammar errors, simply just being a parent should be enough and I should hire them on the spot without even meeting them or not show up all together after scheduling an interview without so much as a text to cancel.
