Received Wednesday, May 7, 2008- Perspective & Opinion
I have a question for any of you that have experienced what I am going through. I have been a professional nanny, (on and off), for over thirteen years now. Although I enjoy working with children, I am ready to make the transition into another career. My question is, how does one go about making that transition? I have interviewed on and off for a couple of years now with companies and I get calls and interviews, however when it comes to describing my work history, the interview takes a turn for the worse, (I.E. it is evident that they think that I have not really had a "real" job or transferable skills).
The other obstacle that I am facing is leaving the children and family. I have been with all of the children their whole lives and I know that the parents are going to be very disappointed when I leave. What can I do to make it easier on everybody? (Just for reference, they have just had another baby)
Thanks in advance!
