Here are some quick tips for getting hired as a nanny, in a nanny share:
First, you'll want to make sure you're familiar with the different recreational locations in Chicago. If you've recently move from another city in Illinois, take time to familiarize yourself with community centres, local schools, and other hubs in Chicago. You want your future employer to feel comfortable that you know their community.
Second, understand Chicago's transit routes. As you will be caring for two families, you'll almost certainly need to travel long distances to pick up multiple children every day. Having a clear plan for how you'll achieve this will do a lot of good.
Third, clarify exactly what you're willing to do in a given nanny share job. Caring for two families means your time is spread more thinly, so you'll want to set realistic boundaries. Are you willing to cook and clean? Are you available all day? Knowing this ahead of time will make things easier for you and all the potential employers you'll meet in Chicago.
Finally, try to make friends with your employer! Parents are just people who want the best for their family. If this is their first time in a nanny share, or hiring a nanny, you'll want to spend some time putting their mind at ease. Asking them about their values and parenting philosophy will go a long way. Spend some time thinking about how you can help their children flourish, and you'll be sure to impress them in the interview.
