Job Search: How to Describe Yourself In Your Nanny Job Hunt

It’s important when creating your job search materials, filling out applications and answering help wanted ads to be able to accurately describe the type of caregiver you are. That’s not an easy task!

One of the best ways of doing this is to use common terms to describe yourself. Are you crafty, active, holistic, funny? Don’t just stop with one word. Connect words to create phrases. Are you educationally focused or whole child centered? And use generally recognizable titles, situations and descriptions to create those visual pictures that are so important. Do you create a Montessori-like learning environment? Do you bring a kid-like sense of wonder to everyday experiences? You’re only limited by your imagination when it comes to creating a unique and fitting description for yourself.
