Put your best foot forward.
I could spend hours regaling you with stories of nanny interviews gone good, bad, and just plain crazy. They are rarely a typical corporate appointment. Nanny candidates never know what they might encounter at that first, face- to- face interview–parents who are nervous and unsure, crabby children, a sick family pet, a request to change a diaper … Here is a sample of the interview tips we’ve created for our nanny candidates:
"I would rate Stanford Park Nannies very highly! They provide a great flow of very qualified candidates, who are all prepared to pay taxes. They have a great vetting process and did not waste our time with those that weren’t a fit. In addition to our full-time search, they had the ability to quickly identify relevant interim/temp nannies as well!"
"SPN is a powerhouse agency of incredible women who embody experience, passion, and a heart for service!"
"SPN provides you with a current understanding of what should be expected of nannies and employers and they empower you by coaching you through it all. When I started to interview with families, they gave me great feedback—it felt like I had my own personal interviewing cheerleaders!"
"If I could give SPN 100 stars, I would! There is 100% value in the services that SPN provides. Daryl was extremely responsive and thorough. Our night nurse has been perfect!"
