After you submit your job application, it's up to families to reach out to the caregiver that best matches their needs.
Not receiving many responses to your applications? Review our checklist below to make sure you're setting yourself up for success on Sittercity:
- Add a photo
Show off that smiling face! Check out our profile photo guidelines before uploading your photo.
- Spell check and proofread
Your bio should be professional and free of grammar and spelling errors.
- Emphasize your previous experience and qualifications
Be sure your profile and job applications speak to your background as a caregiver. Check out our blog post, Writing a Winning Sitter or Nanny Application, for tips and inspiration.
- Run a background check
Sitters with a completed background check receive 5 times more profile views!
- Keep applying to jobs
While you wait for responses, continue to apply to jobs that you think you're a great fit for. There are new jobs posted every day, and the more jobs you apply for, the better chance you have at receiving a response.
Don't be nervous about applying to too many jobs—you can decide which job is best for you when the time comes!
