Nanny Needs Remarkable Resumé
I am looking for some ways to become a more professional nanny. I love my current family, but it is part time and will never be enough hours. I am tired of having to piece more than one family together in order to put food on the table, many times working well over 50 hours but without the benefits of one full time family. I feel like I am ready to go from nanny job to nanny career. I have an extensive background in childcare. My mother ran an in home daycare in which I helped with many activities. When I was 21 I got my first nanny job. I am now 36 and I have watched over 25 children. I have many amazing references and I am CPR/First aid certified.
What I'm looking for now, are suggestions of affordable ways to make my resume stand out even more. I've looked at online nanny training and I can't find anything that looks like it isn't a scam. I do have some college under my belt, but not in early childhood development. I know some certifications require this. What would all of you recommend? I want prospective families to realize that this is my chosen career, that I take it seriously and that I am a professional. I don't plan on making any changes until the middle of next summer. I am not opposed to going back to school, either. I just can't afford it right now. Thanks for any advice! - Anonymous
